Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

via All Recipes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups coarsely chopped zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped onions
  • 1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound extra lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup uncooked couscous
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, or as needed

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray 20 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Place zucchini, onions, and red bell pepper into a food processor, and pulse several times until finely chopped but not liquefied. Place the vegetables into a bowl, and mix in ground turkey, couscous, egg, Worcestershire sauce, and Dijon mustard until thoroughly combined. Fill each prepared muffin cup about 3/4 full. Top each cup with about 1 teaspoon of barbecue sauce.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until juices run clear, about 25 minutes. Internal temperature of a muffin measured by an instant-read meat thermometer should be at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Exercise Quotes

via Eden Thompson, AVAC

It is a proven fact… exercise is a fundamental component to an individual’s physical and mental well-being. You’ve been hearing it all of your life from doctors, friends, and family, but if that still isn’t enough to convince you that it is time to start moving, here are 9 of my favorite exercise related quotes for a little motivation:

Physical fitness is not only
one of the most important keys to a healthy body;
it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.
-John F. Kennedy


It is exercise alone that supports the spirits,
and keeps the mind in vigor.
-Cicero


Movement is a medicine for creating change
in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states.
-Carol Welch


Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being,
while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.
-Plato


Wholesome exercise in the free air, under the wide sky,
is the best medicine for body and spirit.
-Sarah Louise Arnold

and exercise of the body; the two are united.
