Fall is here! YAY!
My favorite season and not just because of how beautiful it is, but because of the foods that come in season. Apples, apples, apples. Love them.
I always drag the hubs to the orchard and we head home with more apples than we could every use, or that is what he says. I take it as a challenge to use up every last apple and enjoy every last bite.
Be prepared to see a few apple recipes popping up here, so you better head to the orchard yourself, so you don’t miss a single delicious bite.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And a breakfast packed full of protein is the best way to get your body moving. No seriously, you need to eat protein in the morning to help jumpstart that metabolism and get the blood pumping.
A moving metabolism is a metabolism that is burning up those calories and helping us to function at our best. Brain and body, sometimes I might need a bit of caffeine to help jump-start my brain. Just saying.
Make a batch up of these super simple muffins, that are loaded with protein and healthy ingredients and enjoy your breakfast and your morning.
