Paleo Meatloaf Recipe (with a Keto Option)

After making this paleo meatloaf recipe, I admit I now feel I should make it more frequently. It truly is a satisfying main entree! 

I even would like to change up the flavors. In fact, I already have a Thai-style meatloaf roaming around in my head with fresh ginger and basil mixed right in. Maybe some curry paste if I’m really letting my hair down. Thoughts? Feelings?
