Blueberry Chia Muffins

Blueberry chia muffins that are packed with protein and just the right amount of sweetness- perfect to make ahead for an easy busy morning breakfast!

November is here my friends. I am mildly freaking out inside  about the next two months. Events happening every weekend on my calendar all the way into January. My heart is full that there is that much on our social calendar but also a little bit overwhelmed by the amount of tasks that will need my attention for each one of those events. Time to dust off my Super Mom cape and get that coffee IV installed!

When life gets chaotic, I like to think of shortcuts to help balance my time. Always an easy way to balance the weekdays is with a little bit of weekend meal prep. Not only is the food ready to go but it also eliminates the brain power of deciding what to make. Score for less decisions for a day!

Today I am sharing a blueberry muffin recipe that is loaded with protein with just the right bit of sweetness. Delicious fresh blueberries with added texture from chia seeds- these are healthy and easy breakfast option! They are pretty dense and keep me full until a mid-morning light snack. Warning, these will stick so make sure you grease well. If you do not have fresh blueberries, frozen will work. Another option subbing for cranberries which are very seasonal right now- they would be a delicious alternative!

Healthy Pumpkin Bread & Homemade Pumpkin Spice Seasoning

Call me basic but I all about the #allthingspumpkin train. This month I’m sharing healthy pumpkin recipes I’ve made recently-last week it was pumpkin spice energy bites. This week I have a yummy (and healthy) pumpkin bread plus my homemade pumpkin spice seasoning! My love for pumpkin goes way back to the 80’s; I’m pretty certain Thanksgiving originally became a favorite holiday only because the pumpkin pie. So yes, when the season even flirts with becoming fall I break out all the pumpkins. The first fall like temps gave me the itch for a pumpkin bread. The catch is I […]

Yogurt Parfait Err’day

  Usually if I try to eat the same item every day, I get burned out quickly. I don’t know what Chobani puts in their coconut greek yogurt but I’ve ate this almost every day for breakfast for probably the last two years. The secret for me, I have to throw some texture in there. Almonds, chocolate chips, strawberries- whatever I have laying around.     Lately though, since I’ve been nursing- this yogurt parfait has been my staple. Brewer’s Yeast and Flaxseed are full of milk-making supply goodness. By mixing it up in my yogurt, I can’t even taste […]
