Marta's Meatloaf Muffins

I have had a lot of requests to share one of my go-to recipes, which I call my meatloaf muffins.
I combined a few different recipes that I found over the years to create my favorite concoction.
I love the addition of the grated zucchini as it makes them SO juicy and delicious!

Want to try them? I think you should!
Here is what your cute self will need:

  • 2 lbs. ground turkey/bison/grass fed beef (bison is my fave!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (or 2 depending on your preference) large zucchini grated
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp dry yellow mustard
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 diced onion
  • 2 diced celery stalks

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and spray a muffin pan with some coconut oil cooking spray (or coat with a little olive oil)
Mix all the ingredients in one large bowl until well combined.  Roll the mixture into balls and place each one in the muffin pan.
Bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through.

Makes 12 juicy muffins.

Let me know if you make these and if you like them!

21 Day Fix & EXTREME Visuals

Hey everyone,

Just popping in here to share a few visuals to help with your 21 Day Fix & EXTREME diet plans.

The diet aspect of the Fix programs looked a little overwhelming at first.  For those that don't know anything about it let me share a little bit of information.  In the 21 Day Fix diet you have portion controlled containers.  You are to measure out your food using the containers.  Each person could be on a different calorie intake.  This must be figured out first.  I am on the calorie range for 1299-1499 calories.  All of the visuals that you see below fit the breakdown for that range.

Each caloric range has a certain number of containers that you can eat daily.  In my case I get 4 reds(protein), 3 green(vegetables), 2 purple(fruit), 2 yellow(carbs), 1 orange(seeds or dressings), and 1 blue(healthy fats).  You are also allowed 4 teaspoons of your favorite "nut" butter, such as peanut or almond butter.

Trying to figure out which ones to eat when seemed a bit intimidating.  Then I made a visual...


Seeing the little boxes spread out throughout the day made it SO much easier to understand and help plan out my days.  I have made several different visuals.  Mix and match to see which one fits your lifestyle best.  Are you a carb in the morning person?? Or can you wait until lunch??  There is a visual to fit your needs.  Try one out one week and another one out the next.  The only meal that will NEVER change for me is DINNER!!!!!! We are a meat, vegetable and carb type of family when it comes to dinner time.  It is the easiest and most family friendly, in my opinion.  I am not cooking two meals at night.  So if we do some sort of grilled or smoked meat for dinner, throw in one of our favorite vegetable, such as asparagus, and then a delicious side of wild rice we are set.

This is what works for me and for our family 99% of the time.  Then all I have to do is measure and then eat.  My husband can eat more if he wants, but the breakdown is there for success!!!

Enjoy these visuals and share them so your life is easier.  If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment!!! I will be working on other caloric ranges very soon!!!!!!



Carb in the middle of the day...


Carb for my morning snack...


I hope you enjoy!!!
