Tasty Tuesday: Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

As everyone knows, reaching your fitness goals is mathematically broken down as 20% in the gym and 80% in the kitchen. We have heard many fitness models and spokesmen say, "Your abs are made in the kitchen."

To honor that important aspect of fitness, I will incorporate a Tasty Tuesday in this week's blogging. For those who know me personally, or even impersonally, you probably know that I do not like to cook. It is not one of those activities that I would put on my top 50 things to do for fun. Thank goodness I was blessed with a husband who loves to cook, and enjoys cooking for me.

So for this week, I will feature a delicious and easy recipe that is clean, quick, and can last you all week when you need to grab something on the go. I present to you: Turkey Meatloaf Muffins.

These little guys are perfect for when you are in a rush running out of the door, OR you simply need a snack to curb your appetite in between your meals. Since they are filled with protein, a snack pack of vegetables would be a nice complement to the turkey muffins.
