Healthy Paleo meatloaf recipe made with grass finished beef, ground pork, celery, and zesty spices for an easy one-pan meal.


  • 1 pound 80/20 grass-finished ground beef
  • 1/2 pound ground pork (or additional ground beef)
  • ½ small yellow onion, small diced
  • ½ cup gluten free or cauliflower breadcrumbs (optional)
  • 1/3 cup diced celery
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup organic ketchup or tomato paste, divided
  • 34 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Starseed Kitchen 11 Magic Herbs & Spices
  • 2 cups of sliced vegetables, such as carrots, baby potatoes, parsnips, zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees convection setting.
  2. Place ground beef and pork in a large bowl. Add onion, breadcrumbs, celery, egg, 1 tablespoon of ketchup or tomato paste, garlic, sea salt, black pepper and Starseed Kitchen 11 Magic Herbs & Spices. Gently mix until ingredients are well combined.
  3. Transfer mixture to a small baking dish. Form into a domed loaf shape. Add remaining ketchup or tomato paste evenly over meatloaf, spreading with the back of a spoon. Surround meatloaf with vegetables. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake until meatloaf is browned on top and cooked through, about 40-45 minutes.


Don’t have a baking dish? Make the meatloaf in a bread pan or on a baking sheet.

You can make this recipe with just ground beef. Make sure to use 1 ½ pounds of ground meat total.

Be sure to choose 80/20 ground beef. That means there is 20% fat. A leaner ground beef will make the dish dry. Fat adds moisture, makes the meal satisfying, and helps you feel full. When there is fat in a meal you often eat less. Don’t be afraid of meat with fat.
