Most of us that read this newsletter tend to follow a fairly wholesome, real-food nutrition plan. Nonetheless, we were SHOCKED to read that almost 60% of the typical American diet is ultra-processed junk food. Read Dr Mercola's article this week to learn more about the research supporting why many of us have left the typical American food plan in the dust. A good rule of thumb to remember is that, anything that isn't directly from the vine, bush, tree, or from the earth is considered processed.
Cupcakes are the rage nowadays, but unfortunately they typically fall into that "ultra-processed junk food" category. Wellness Mama brings us a recipe for Meatloaf Cupcakes that will bring your kids running to the dinner table!

About 90 percent of the money Americans spend on food goes to buy processed food. What's worse, new research shows that, astonishingly, more than half-nearly 60 percent in fact, of the food Americans eat is ULTRA-processed.
Basically, half of what the average American eats in any given day are convenience foods that can be bought at your local gas station.
Moreover, those ultra-processed foods account for 90 percent of the added sugar consumption in the U.S.
"This recipe was inspired by the Paleo Parent's recipe for meatloaf cupcakes. It is such a cute idea and the kids love the small size of these mini-meatloaves. They sneak some extra veggies in to the meatloaf and top with a tomato sauce. My kids love sweet potatoes so I decided to mix it up and use a sweet potato "frosting." Cupcakes are so popular right now, and these are cupcakes I'd be ok with my kids eating.
Meatloaf cupcakes also cook much faster than regular meat "loafs" and are easier to pack for lunches or on-the-go."
