No, these are not your typical blueberry or bran varieties. Rather, we've put together one dinner, two breakfasts and two savory snacks baked in their own portion-controlled muffin holes to make mealtime a no-brainer during hectic workweeks.

Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

Savory Carrot Muffins (PointsPlus value: 3 per muffin)

A French terrine turned into muffins. Take one with you when you shop at the mall: certainly tastier and healthier than many food-court snack options. Or enjoy it as a vegetable side dish.
