|Venison Meatloaf - a GREAT Atkins Induction Meal|
We do not hunt or fish so much these days. Leases are too expensive and the fatigue leftover from the cancer doesn’t leave me much energy for getting out into the wild. Excuses, excuses. The main reason is that we’ve become too accustomed to hunting and gathering down the isles of our conveniently located HEB. HEB, like all major super markets, diabolically destroys seasons, allowing us to eat anything our little heart desires, in-season or out-of-season.

Usually I use a combination of oat fiber and coconut fiber to replace bread or oatmeal that is used to keep meatloaf moist and tender. But since we’re on Induction, the oat fiber (which is different than oat bran, rolled oats, or oat flour) is off the table for the short term. I replaced it with pumpkin and the results were delicious!
No, it does NOT taste like pumpkin!

I used some of the barbecue sauce in the easy glaze. Boy was it yummy!

Notes: I’m not worried one little bit about going over by 1 gram of net carbs. The stress of worrying is worse for you than the extra carb. I know I’m losing and am on track. It doesn’t even bother me that I consumed all 21 grams of Net Carbs in a single meal. That is still considered a low carb meal, believe it or not! But I will say, it is generally better, not to mention that it’s one of the rules of Atkins Induction, to spread 20g of net carbs between 3 meals.
