Feed The Fam: Clean Eating Turkey Meatloaf

Clean Eating Turkey Meatloaf

These days, I am trying to eat clean. I fall of the wagon here and there, and I’m not always super strict with dairy, but for the most part we eat pretty clean around here. At the grocery store, I try to stick to the peripherals, unless I am buying whole grains and nuts, because for the most part, the aisles at the grocery store are junk. Processed, sugary, junk. Recently, I’ve become much more aware of just how much sugar our processed foods contain. So stinking much.
Did you know that women should try and stick to about 25 grams of sugar per day? Kids anywhere from 12-16 grams, and males around 35 grams. Did you know the typical cup of flavored yogurt contains around 26 grams of sugar?! Insane! There’s my sugar consumption for the day!
Any who, I’m on a journey to keep junk and sugar out of my body and since I’m the cook around here, I guess my family is on the same journey. Except, if you know my husband, you know he eats ice cream or some sort of treat every night. Without fail. He is a sugar addict, but at least I control breakfast lunch and dinner, for the most part.
