Stop habits that may hold you back!

Are there habits in your life, you would like to stop doing? Are these the very things that may be holding you back from achieving the goals you truly desire? What if there was a simple tool to help us break out of old patterns and move forward with new positive ones? Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. Habits that have been formed over the course of your lifetime so far. Some good, some bad. How in or out of shape you are…..habits! The kind of food that you do or do not consume…..habits!

Mega Tasty Pork & Vegetable Meatloaf

Meatloaf never looks that pretty, but this mega tasty meatloaf is certainly a flavour bomb! I have adapted this recipe from one of my favourite wholefood bloggers, Naturopath Georgia Harding at http://wellnourished.com.au/. I love her message and her recipes.

The best part of making this, is it is quite simple and reasonably quick to prepare. It’s also a great budget dish with lots of hidden veggies in them, for the fussy eaters. I also make up a double batch and make a extra meatloaf and even some burgers with the extra meat mixture.
