I am in the middle of a week that has my head spinning. I have no idea how I will catch up with the backlog of patient follow-up and charting and actually spend some time with my tribe of children. Fortunately, I have an obligation to heed my own advice and stay focused on my health--even when I have no time. That's why I am writing this and why I took an extra 20 minutes tonight to prepare for the next 3 days. I made one of my easy go-to high protein snacks to keep me from skipping meals. These spinach and egg white muffins have 140 calories, 19 grams of protein, and nearly 20% of your daily calcium and iron!
