Exercise Shoes
I have found that as long as you have the right support in your shoe, it doesn't matter if they cost $100 or $25. The first thing I do when I get a new pair of running shoes (or walking shoes) is throw out the insole they come with and replace it with a Sport insole (Dr. Scholls Sport is good... I've also had some other good noname brands). It's a fact that if your feet hurt, the world is a terrible place. The extra $8-15 for the insoles make my feet sing--which inspires me to run or walk a little farther each day.

okay question
I asked my husband for the recipe that he uses... and of course, he says he's "evolved" beyond a recipe (oh brother!). I have seen him make it enough where I'm pretty sure how the recipe goes...

1 chopped yellow onion
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (1/4 teaspoon dried)
3 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chicken stock
1/4 teaspoons tomato paste
1 package ground turkey
1/2 cups plain dry bread crumbs
1 large eggs, beaten (or 1/4 c. egg beaters)
*****Optional ingredients*****
About 1/3-1/2 of a zucchini, either grated or diced
About 1/2-1 cup of mushrooms (we like the shiitake or cremini).
1 cup chopped carrots
If you add the extras, add them into the onion mixture in the skillet to soften.

Saute the onions, olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme until translucent, but not browned--about 10 min. Add the Worcestershire sauce, chicken stock, and tomato paste and mix well. Allow to cool to room temperature.

Combine the ground turkey, bread crumbs, eggs, and onion mixture in a large bowl. Mix well and shape into a rectangular loaf on an ungreased sheet pan.

Bake in over, 325 F. until the internal temp of the loaf (or log if you prefer) is 165 F. Usually about 25-30. [although it has taken as long as 45-50 min before]

He will take it out of the oven about 5-10 min early and put pasta sauce on top and put it back in the oven. We both love lots of onion and garlic, so please adjust to your tasts. We're also big fans of the red pepper flakes in the pasta sauce... I would highly recommend if you want a little extra kick.

(sorry it took so long!) Smile

okay question
My husband makes the most amazing meatloaf with ground turkey and veggies (like carrots, onions, sometimes squash...) which is absolutely amazing, even though I've never liked meatloaf. He also does mashed potatos (with skim milk and little butter) and instead of gravy, we put homemade marinara sauce on top. It sounded very strange to me, but is amazing - *and* doesn't kill my diet. 3 or 4 oz of meatloaf with some potatos and a salad or side veggies is more than enough to leave me feeling stuffed, but not remorseful if I do eat more than I should.

If your roomie and friend are loyal to fatty meatlog, you can make a "decoy" of turkey-loaf for yourself, of they could try eating a lighter, healtier meal which still has all the favors of the traditional favorite.
