Healthy Pumpkin Muffins with Maple Cream Cheese

If you are looking for decadent, delicious, NOT healthy pumpkin cream cheese muffins you need to go here to one of my first recipes ever posted (pardon the crappy pics) way before I started my health and fitness journey. BUT if you are looking for something delicious to have with your morning coffee with just a hint of sweetness that fits perfectly into your clean eating lifestyle and won’t break the calorie bank, these are for you! WARNING: it will be hard to eat just one!

21 Day Fix Pumpkin Muffins

Ingredients:

2 oz cream cheese, softened
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1.5 cups almond flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 dash sea salt
2 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare muffin tins by lining 9 cups with liners or coating with cooking spray.

Combine cream cheese and maple syrup in a small bowl, set aside.

Mix egg and pumpkin in a medium bowl until combined. In a separate bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda and salt. Add almond flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix until just blended.

Spoon batter into each muffin cup, filling less than 1/2 full. Spoon 1 heaping teaspoon of cream cheese mixture into the center of each muffin cup. Top the cups with the remaining batter. Sprinkle the pumpkin seeds over the tops of the muffins.

Bake at 350 for 16-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer the cooked muffins to a wire rack to cool.

21 Day Fix Turkey Chili

This chili is the recipe trifecta: healthy, easy, and delicious! I loved it, hubs loved it, and it was simple to make. This is the perfect fall dish. Top with shredded cheese, a dollop of Greek yogurt, and a couple whole grain tortilla chips for even more flavor! Yum!

Turkey Chili

Ingredients: 

1 tsp olive oil
1.5 lbs lean ground turkey
1 medium onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp chili powder
1.5 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 15-oz cans black (or pinto) beans, rinsed and drained
1 15-oz can diced tomato (no sugar added), with liquid*

Optional:
Shredded cheese
Fresh cilantro, chopped
Greek yogurt
Whole grain tortilla chips, crushed

Directions:

Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the turkey, onion, pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until turkey is no longer pink (about 5-8 minutes).

Add spices and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

Add beans and tomatoes, with liquid, and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Serve and add desired toppings.

* I used a second can of diced tomatoes because mine were not very liquid-y and I desired more liquid in the final product (add additional 1/2 green)

Serves: 6, 1 cup per serving

21 Day Fix: 1/2 green, 1/2 yellow, 1 red (add additional 1/2 yellow and blue if using tortillas and cheese)

New Meal Plan – 7 Meals a Day

On the 21 Day Fix meal plan I got used to eating 5 meals a day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with two snacks. Now, on 21 Day Fix Extreme I have upped that to 7 meals a day, eating every two hours, and it is pretty awesome! This way I never let myself get hungry and I am eating to fuel rather than based on cravings. I find that if I let myself get hungry I turn towards unhealthy foods. I have my meal plan printed out and know what I am going to be eating and have no time to start craving crappy food. It’s definitely a mindset change eating so often when you may not even feel hungry but it really helps to curb cravings and mindless snacking.

So, here is what I am eating these days…

8 am – breakfast – avocado egg toast (my favorite)
(1 yellow, 1 blue, 1/2 red)

IMG_6312

10 am – snack – hard boiled egg and fruit
(1 purple, 1/2 red)

IMG_7078

12 pm – lunch – salad with veggies, chicken, EVOO and red wine vinegar
(1 green, 1/2 red)

IMG_7084

2 pm – snack – baked sweet potato
(1/2 yellow)

IMG_7085

4 pm – snack – salad with egg, pepitas, EVOO and red wine vinegar, fruit
(1 green, 1/2 red, 1 orange, 1/2 purple)

IMG_7089

6 pm – dinner – turkey meatloaf and brussels sprouts
(1 red, 1/2 yellow, 1/2 purple, 1 green)

IMG_7070

8 pm – healthy treat – shakeology – this month I am doing chocolate vegan, super yummy! This is a super huge plus for me because it is a treat at the end of the day and replaces my dark chocolate or wine treat.
