Prepping for the Week (4/1/12)

Good evening you guys!  Well I'm winding down my day by posting yet another blog.  I swear I'm trying my best to keep up.

It's Monday (sigh) and my typical routine as follows- breakfast, work, study, workout, dinner then bed.  Exciting stuff huh?  I'm currently sitting up-right in bed, watching 'Bethenny Ever After.'  I love her.  Anyways.. this post is dedicated to Sunday prep-day which usually involves cutting, sipping on wine, cutting, sipping on more wine, and packaging my food for the next two to three days.  There's two days I usually dedicate this day to and that's Sunday and Tuesday and the occasional Friday.

The menu for this week includes a salad of some-sort and a new recipe, Jamie Eason's 'Turkey Meatloaf Muffins.'  Yea..weird huh?  Muffins?!  I took on this recipe because I wanted to see what the hoopla was about.  And when I say "hoopla," I'm referring to the trending pictures on Instagram.  When I googled it, the result took me to bodybuilding.com and my first reaction was, woah!  This means low carbs, high protein, portion-sized eats and guess what, I was right. :)

You can Google the recipe online or just follow this link: Jamie Eason's Turkey Meatloaf Muffins 
Or you can get it here!! :)

  • 2 lbs ground turkey (or chicken)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp dry yellow mustard - Note: I couldn't find this so I just used wet yellow mustard (2 tsp)
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp chipotle pepper spice (I found this in a McCormick brand)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder (2 cloves minced)
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 celery stalks (finely chopped)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Spray muffin pan with canola or olive oil.

  3. Mix all your ingredients together in one large bowl.

  4. Roll the mixture into balls and place in muffin pan. Muffins should be about the size of a racquetball.

  5. Bake for 40 minutes.
  6. Makes 12 muffins.

    I copied and paste this by the way.  Haha I'm so lazy but whatever!  The result- it was filling and delicious!  It's kinda spicy but I like spicy!  But the thing is.. I don't eat meat too often so I'm left with a lot of balls haha.  So this week, I'm passing out turkey meatball muffins to my coworkers, friends, neighbors.  Jk on neighbors.  But I HIGHLY recommend making these because they're so convenient especially when you're on the go and they're only 80 calories per 'muffin!!'  Yes.  Amazing!!

    Btw ever since I copied and paste the recipe and directions, I'm not able to go back to the alignment of my paragraphs.  Dang!  Oh well, I'm done anyways.  Have a lovely night everyone!
