Heigh ho, heigh ho, it’s off to work you go – with no time for breakfast. If that’s your tune each morning, it’s time to do something nice for your body and mind: Eat that first meal of the day before you leave the house. Eating breakfast (and we’re talking about something more substantial than a cup of coffee laden with cream and sugar) gives you energy to kick-start your day. It’s also a great habit to start the New Year on the right foot!
If you dread dry, bland diet breakfast food (fiber cereal, anyone?), these moist muffins will make mornings happy again. With just 136 calories and a single gram of fat, they’re a light, sweet start to the day or a deliciously guilt-free mid-morning snack. Bananas boost energy, while fiber-rich flaxseed fills you up, keeping those weight-loss efforts on track!
Crazy about chai? This wildly popular drink, made from black tea, milk and traditional Indian herbs and spices, is guzzled down by coffee-shop goers for its exotic, eye-opening flavor and irresistible creaminess. But a luscious latte isn’t the only way to enjoy it! In these mouth-watering muffins, an organic spiced chai protein shake is used to create moistness and kick up nutrition. Add raisins or diced apples for extra yum!
Spring is in the air! What better way to celebrate the start of the season than to surprise your family with a fun, healthy treat? These moist and spicy carrot muffins are studded with plump raisins (or dried cranberries—your choice!) then topped with organic shredded coconut to create mini “birds’ nests.” Decorate them with organic jellybeans or use my recipe for raw macaroons to create your own candied “eggs.”
I’m all for eating healthy. But did you know that a vegan muffin at a bakery or grocery store can set you back as much as $3.75!? That’s for one muffin, people. The thought of my husband spending upwards of $15 a week on muffins makes me, well, sad. Read more →
