Meatloaf with Sauteed Veggies

Use your favorite Zone meatloaf recipe- there are lots of them! Keep in mind if you use ground turkey in your meatloaf you can have 1 1/2 oz per block. Side dishes can be a challenge on the Zone, but this was a good one.
Sauteed Veggies: 1 1/2 cups zucchini sliced , 1 cup green beans, 1/4 cup corn kernels, 1 tsp olive oil, 1 tsp rice vinegar, 1/2 tsp dried thyme.
Heat oil in saute pan and add zucchini, green beans and corn. Saute for 3-4 minutes. Add vinegar and thyme and cook for 1-2 minutes longer. Salt and pepper to taste.
Meatloaf Dinner- 3 blocks
4 1/2 oz turkey meatloaf- (3 blocks protein)
Veggie mix (3 blocks carbs/ 1 1/2 blocks fat)
3 cashews (1 block fat)

Hi Michele, question- if I eat a bag of KING SIZE peanut M&Ms for lunch do I skip a snack or possibly dinner?

Thanks for all of the great ideas and recipes!
