After making my last batch of muffins, I found that they are the perfect mid-morning snack. I usually eat breakfast by 7am, so by 10:30am, my stomach is growing. With these muffins coming in at about 120 calories, they are just perfect to hold me over until lunch. They also have 4 grams of protein per muffin, which can be increased by using Greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt.
I worked in retail for nearly five years. Last July, I left my retail job and took a job as a full time instructor. During the five years in retail, I worked weekends – like most of them. Most Saturdays until about 4pm, you could find me in the grocery store. It’s funny, because even after five years, I never got used to working on Saturdays; I hated every single Saturday that I had to work.

I am always looking for a new vegetarian lunch idea. This week, I went back to work after being off for winter break for a month. I was so excited to get back in to the swing of things - meal prep included. My husband and I have been going out to eat more frequently since I was on break. The holidays were so busy that I didn't have time to meal plan and grocery shop. This week, it's a different story.
