EWWEE?? NOT! I was surprised how much I really liked this! I mean meat muffins?? Who’d a thunk it? I guess Jamie Eason and bodybuilding.com. I am going to make these again and again. I had to come up with some bulk meal ideas so that I can whoop Grumpster’s Bootea in his Coffee Cup Challenge (Still one last day to join–tomorrow)! Just sayin’ a girls gota do what a girls gotta do! Then, here I go sharin’ my tricks. What is wrong with me–do I wanna lose? Nahh! I just like to share–I am a givin’ kinda girl.
Here is the video I watched to make mine — as always — I tweeked the recipe to suit my tastes in the seasonings (which rarely change the calories). Enjoy.
I will be making many versions of these “meat muffins,” especially since you can make 12 at one time–giving you multipul meals prepped. I LOVE having stuff already made to graze on instead of fast processed food (Unlike grumpy I have a house full of JUNK FOOD and family who buy it–so I gotta be strong). Having prepped food is key for me. I have even heard of folks making the muffins from NON-frozen meat and then freezing them in the pain for a quick pop in the oven. I am also going to make a smaller meatball version to freeze for low fat fixins’ for many food ideas. I promise I will share those with you too. My version has grassfeed beef and turkey breast. Jamie’s muffins are 100% turkey breast. I don’t care for straight ground turkey breast burgers or much of anything else, but I do like adding that or chicken to cut the fat of my beef. Her muffins were 80 cals each. Mine were a 100 cals each. So there is a bit of a trade up on the calories and I know some women down’t lose if they eat beef–I’m not one of those. I will start having issues if I don’t eat it often enough.
Side Note: Yes, you see bacon in my greens–nitrate free and organic–that was accounted in my 388 calories for the meal.
I have to tell you … I have NEVER liked tuna before this TUNA. YUMMY stuff (click link for recipe)! I don’t know or understand all the details of why this “Wild Planet Foods” tuna is so special, but it is. I am a girl who will NOT eat fishy fish. I grew up in Louisiana where fresh fish and seafood are in abundant supply–this could be my picky fish-ness problem–so If I like this brand enough to keep yappin’ about them and giving them free advertising–it’s DANG GOOD. Just sayin’ …
As with the other recipe–I took liberties because I was hungry and wanted food fast. I was ticked with myself that I forgot to add the basil from my garden in, but it was still KICK BUTT … that is what I am gonna do to you Grumpster. Yeah–I am seriously trash talkin’, but it is kinda fun even if I am not going my normal–I KNOW this works diet plan, but trying a new one so I am kinda nervous. hehehe! I’m still giving it one heck of a good try. Yep — I will be posting my weight tomorrow. BOO HISS! I no wanna–Just sayin’! I NO LIKEY the scaley.
Well … until the morrow … I will leave you with my exercise pic for the day. Weighted pelvic lifts–I know I am getting so racey with the butt cleavage, meat muffins, and pelvic lifts–but hang in there with me for a bit longer … it could be interesting.
