Turkey Zucchini Cheddar Meatloaf
1 cup grated zucchini         1 cup fat free shredded cheddar
3 TBSP egg whites         1/2 cup onion diced
1/2 cup mushroom dices         3 cloves of garlic minced
bit of s&p       1 pound ground turkey

1 TBSP brown sugar      1 TBSP mustard
2 TBSP Katchup                       

Ok, you will grate your zucchini and keep about a cup. Lay it out on paper towel and place another paper towel on top then smoosh all the liquid out. You of course can use more or less of any ingredent this is just what I threw in the pot. Put zucchini, cheese, egg whites, diced onion, mushrooms, garlic, and s&p in big bowl. Mix well...
You will then add the turkey and mix again. Easier to use your hands so just dig on in there. You will then create 7-8 meatloaf balls and place them in a greased baking dish. In seperate bowl mix the katchup, brown sugar, and mustard. Then spoon on top of each meatloaf. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve :)

DXA Scan

Just had a DXA scan done. It is a scan that measures bone density and body fat and overall body composition. They said it is more accurate than the bod pod which is what I originally going to get. I am dissapointed, I thought I had less body fat than I do, but they said it is hard for any machine to tell with the excess skin. But I am now 37.2% body fat. Way better than I used to be. This is the picture they gave me. It shows my skin and all. Hope to have it done again in the distant future after skin removal. He is suposed to send me detailed report in English on my specific body regions and everything else. Will post when I get them. (click for larger. Sorry for the sideways pics.)
