What I love most about muffin tin recipes for meal prep is the automatic portion control. Muffin tins make it easy to divide a recipe evenly so you have a better idea of how much you're eating.
While traveling in Israel, a few years ago, I had an amazing farm-to-table experience with a vegetarian chef. One of my favorite dishes was a stone oven-roasted sweet potato smothered in lentils and topped with tahini. When I returned to the US, I tried my own twist on the dish, incorporating familiar Latin flavors. I decided to use black lentils because I love the way they make the other colors in the dish pop; a natural reminder to eat a "rainbow" every meal.
This smoothie has a lot of personality. It's a burst of sunshine to start the day in a creamy, berry red smoothie. What's the secret energizing ingredient? Avocado! It makes the smoothie thick while balancing the sweetness of the date, berries and OJ.
