What I eat Wednesday

We've been trying to eat more clean and healthy recently. Ideally, I like to plan and prepare my weekly meals ahead of time but "ain't nobody got time for that"!  I turned to the interwebs looking for fast fixing, clean eating recipes and found this winner, winner, chicken dinner:




Jamie Eason's Turkey Meatloaf Muffins
Minutes to Prepare: 5
Minutes to Cook: 40
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients:

1 cup dry oats
egg white, fresh, 3 large
Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped
Celery, raw, 1 cup, diced
 Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 2.5 lbs
Ground cumin, 0.5 tsp
Thyme, Dried Ground 1 tsp
Dry, ground mustard 2 tsp
Black pepper 2 tsp
Chipotle pepper, ground, 2 tsp (I've subbed chili powder successfully)
Salt, 1 tsp
Garlic powder, 2 tbsp


Directions:
combine all dry ingredients and mix up,

add chopped veggies and ground turkey and egg whites,

mix well.

Spray non stick spray on muffin tin,

Fill each spot with tennis ball sized amount of turkey mixture,

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 min.



Each muffin is about 90 calories each. These can be a little on the dry side. You can add shredded or finely chopped zucchini squash for taste and extra moisture, if desired. I've tried it and it is quite tasty. You could use fresh spinach leaves too, if desired. I haven't tried that but I might the next time I make these. These freeze, store and reheat well. They're easy to pack in a lunch too!
