During the school year, it’s all too easy to let your eating habits slip. To help fight this, the Fulcrum has some essential recipes to keep you full and fit all year long.

When you were a kid, at some point in time your parents probably tried to force feed you a bland chunk of meatloaf. It’s kind of a weirdly essential part of the North American childhood experience. Luckily for me, my mom put a Mediterranean twist on meatloaf that made the whole exercise bearable. As such, put away the bad memories from the early 2000s and open yourself up to a cost-effective, filling, and regret-free dinner option that even the pickiest of eaters can enjoy.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey, or chicken if preferred

2 eggs

1/4 cup of onions, diced

1 cup of feta with oregano, sundried tomato, and pepper

2 tablespoons oregano and parsley, chopped

1 clove of garlic diced

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice or zest

1/2 teaspoon salt
