Recipe Share: Homemade Blueberry Muffins

With Emma starting preschool, breakfast around here has been hectic.

I’m not used to leaving by 8:20!

I had picked up some mini blueberry muffins from Publix, but I went through two boxes of them in two weeks!

So, to Pinterest I went and found a few different recipes that I liked.

I wanted to use whole wheat flour.

I didn’t have any plain Greek yogurt to use.

So this is what ended up being my recipe:

Cleanse: 3-Day Refresh Results

After having family in town, a bachelorette party, our anniversary, a wedding and the Fourth ofJuly, I had indulged quite a bit over the last couple of months…

Enter the 3-Day Refresh.

I had done it once before (successfully)

And failed miserably the time I tried to do it with my husband (eek).

I just finished the cleanse and here are my results:

Didn’t think I’d give it right away, did ya? 😉

Recipe: Protein Balls

I use this recipe as my afternoon snack most of the time.

They help whenever I’m feeling “hangry.”

Protein Balls

1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 honey
3 tablespoons flax seeds, ground
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder

The original recipe called for 3 tablespoons of dark chocolate chips as well, but I feel that, with the chocolate protein powder, it wasn’t necessary.

I scoop these out (about a tablespoon size) onto a piece of parchment paper-lined tupperware and refrigerate.

Then, enjoy one a day for about a week!

(P.S. This is a hubby-friendly snack too!)

#1- Do not, I repeat, do not volunteer to be a chaperone.  A chaperone is an adult who stays behind-the-scenes of the recital, keeping the kids busy while ALL of the other dances happen on-stage until it’s their turn to go.

Good luck to the poor sap who has to entertain 10+ toddlers for 2+ hours.

May the odds be ever in your favor.
