Hot Detox Turkey Loaf

My mother-in-law first introduced me to the idea of pickles in a meat dish. The fermented tang makes this loaf shine! Turkey is high in tryptophan, which gets converted to 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), and then to serotonin, the neurotransmitter that helps improve mood. Onions are often overlooked on the nutrition scale, but they contain some of the highest levels of an antioxidant called quercetin, which works as both an antihistamine and an anti-inflammatory.


1 tsp           coconut oil

1 lb              ground organic turkey or chicken

1 cup          chopped celery

1 cup          grated zucchini

1 cup          chopped onions

1⁄2 cup       chopped fresh dill

1⁄2 cup        chopped fresh parsley

1⁄2 cup        chopped sugar-free pickles

1 clove        garlic, minced

1 Tbsp        ground flaxseeds (freshly ground if possible)

1 Tbsp        yellow mustard (look for a sugar- free mustard made with turmeric)

1                 large organic egg

1⁄4-1/2 tsp  Herbamare



1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a glass loaf dish with the coconut oil.

2. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients (clean hands work well).

3. Press mixture evenly into the loaf dish. Bake for 45 minutes or until cooked through.

Makes 8 servings. Will keep up to 3 days in the fridge. Freezes well.
