I love my little muffin tray. I also like bite-sized food because it’s cuter! Also, I can eat 2-3 of them and it’ll be the amount of 1 normal sized? Makes me feel a bit better :’) I wanted to make a more protein-based snack so I decided on Turkey Meatloaf Muffins! ANOTHER SIMPLE RECIPE!!!
The other day, I woke up feeling SUPER unmotivated but I still got myself to the gym. I took longer than usual to set up and being my workout because I didn’t want to. After building up a bit of willpower, I pressed start for the first 7-minute circuit and.. it was DIFFICULT. BUT 10 minutes into the workout, I got that endorphin rush & was totally feeling it! Basically, when in doubt, workout. I felt much better & more awake after. Working out = my caffeine/coffee in the morning.
After, I walked over to Pavilions in the same plaza to get 2 pounds of turkey breast & some spinach. Then went home, had breakfast, showered & then began making these easy muffins! I was excited 🙂 I made a large batch and each 1 lb match lasts me 2-3 days! I eat a lot hehheh.
