Muffins have been brutally judged by a generation in the same way they eschew Barbie Dolls.
Not enough protein.
But, you really should stop saying all muffins aren't good for you. That's not nice.
Does the coffee shop muffin have carbs in it? Sure. Does it have a lot of processed sugar? Yup. Is it more than a tad artificial? Yes.
But we should NOT throw away the idea of a warm, deliciously nutritious muffin as a choice breakfast item for the health conscious. Absolutely not. It's like saying that all dolls are bad toys to play with just because Barbie is artificial and superficial.
Here are 3 reasons to start your morning with a healthy, delicious muffins to start your morning. Enough healthy fat, fiber and protein in a single-serving is a way warmer start than a smoothie.
1. Muffins are easy
2. One muffin recipe = 12 servings
3. Muffins are a delicious way to get FIBER, HEALTHY FAT + PROTEIN all in one.
What's could be wrong with that food?
