Mouthwatering Muffin-tin Meals Monday

Hungry?  Didn't I feed you yesterday???
You get home after a long day of whatever – work, school, running errands, being Taxi Mom, a fun day trip with friends.  You don’t feel like schlepping around the kitchen making a big meal for yourself or anyone else, but the fam/friends/personal tummy are growling and hungry!  Whether you are cooking solo or for a big family, muffin meals are easy, fun and work great!  This is a great timesaver that can be made ahead of time and frozen.  Good for snacks, too, or lunches.  What a great way to prepare healthy meals that can go to the office or lunchroom. 

Chicken Tacos
So much of healthy eating is planning and portion control – and having a stock of muffin meals in the freezer can save you time, money and the temptation to do a vending machine binge when you’ve forgotten lunch again.  From breakfast to lunch, to dinner and dessert, these little goodies meet the mark.  Even the desserts aren’t off limits – you can have your dessert and satisfy that sweet tooth craving because you take one – aha!  Have your muffin dessert and eat it, too!

Crab Cakes
Here are seven websites (one for each day of the week) offering some mouth-watering recipes.  Remember, you can always substitute skim milk for cream, low-fat cheese, turkey bacon, etc., as there are some that can rack up the fat and calories (one of the links below is by Weight Watchers).  Easy-breezy, fun for the kids to make and eat, and fast!  Gotta love it.  I think I’m going to make a bunch up this weekend and have them on hand (and then in belly).  Enjoy!
