Spinach And Feta Turkey Balls

So here it is, an easy mouth-watering combination of lean turkey with two of my faves, spinach and feta. Yes, I know it looks pink because it is raw.  The husband said the photo looked like the balls had pink frosting on them. No, they are raw, ready to go in the oven. This is how it went down:

Ingredients:

2 packages of lean ground turkey

2 cups chopped fresh spinach, I chopped in a blender in 20 seconds

1 small container of reduced fat feta cheese

1 tsp of garlic/parsley powder

salt & pepper to taste

Mix all of this up in a big bowl, use your clean hands because  it is easier than using a spoon and you have to make balls anyway. Form into balls and place the balls in a lightly greased muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 to 30 minutes or until done.

They smell so good while cooking. Such a simple and delicious way to get lean protein, veges, and some yum yum with the feta.

Let me know how your balls turn out!

Pumpkin Protein Muffins

Well it is Fall ya’ll. Still feels like summer outside but inside my house, fall lingers in the air. I have been craving crispy fall air with pumpkin smells so I decided to try a new recipe. I got this recipe from www.michellemariefit.com . I changed a couple of things. This is just before they went into the oven.

Recipe:

2 1/2 cups of whole oats

1 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/8 cup organic honey

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

I did not use nuts but 1/2 cup walnuts could be used

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine all wet ingredients and mix well. Add all the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour batter into a greased muffin pan. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top and bake for about 20 minutes or until done.
