3 of 10 Smart Swaps for Fall's Unhealthiest Foods

Meatloaf

Moms may love meatloaf for its convenience, but this school-year staple can come with a high price: saturated fat. Restaurant versions are also teeming with sodium.

Swap: Refrain from ordering meatloaf at a restaurant. Instead, prepare the comfort food at home and replace salt with spices to flavor the dish. Limit the saturated fat in your loaf by using lean meats such as ground chicken, sirloin, turkey, or bison instead of chuck. Try sneaking in a bit of oatmeal for some meat and boost the fiber content, says Salge Blake.

Great tips! I use oatmeal instead of bread crumbs in mine.

I've only ever had homemade. And ground turkey with some sage and spinach and a good bbq sauce on top is an amazing meatloaf.

 I don't like meatloaf, but dh does.  I put oatmeal in it when I make it.
