Turkey Muffins

I am always looking for ways to spice things up a bit!  I feel like I have been eating the same things for quite some time now!  So in an effort to search out some new recipes to boost my lean muscle mass I came across this recipe in Jamie Eason's 12 week livefit program!  I made them yesterday and they are delicious!  So each afternoon I am going to have 2 muffins and a side of veggies!
