Quinoa and Goat cheese Breakfast cups

egg white muffins

I always start my day off with a big dose of clean protein and egg whites are my “go to” breakfast. However, they can get a bit old as they tend to be on the bland side. Therefore, I’m always looking for ways to “spice them up!” These little breakfast cups are super healthy and totally yummy.

Healthy Banana Bread

My kids and hubby are crazy picky! None of them are breakfast eaters but as they’ve aged and matured have realized that they need something in the morning. Mostly breakfast entails cold cereal if they’ve left enough time (they are teenagers after all) or a quick grab and go protein shake. I’ve learned that one way to make sure they eat more is to have things on hand that they can grab and go. You will almost always find a fresh baked from scratch item on my counter for my picky eaters. This way I know what is going into their bodies, can sneak in what I want and they will always eat something. This banana bread is moist, healthy and down right yummy!

So today was my staff Amanda’s Birthday. As with all my friends and families birthday’s I like to make a special treat to celebrate. I mean life is too short to not eat cake!! However, as a Fitness professional it’s not easy cooking for your fitness staff. As much as they enjoy a treat, they are also health conscious like myself so practice moderation whenever possible. Therefore, sometimes the task of cooking a celebratory treat can be tricky. I’m always up to the challenge.

To please everyone’s palette’s, I decided to prepare two treats. One “naughty,” and one “nice”! My staff couldn’t tell the difference. The “nice” treat was moist and yummy and super chocolaty. Not that the “naughty” one wasn’t mouthwatering, but it just goes to prove that “nice” doesn’t mean tasteless!

Cinnamon Muffins

So I have teenagers which means mornings are “fast and furious” around our house. Being boys, they want to sleep until the last possible second meaning that breakfast is either “grab and go” or doesn’t even happen. Since I’m already at work (I leave the house at 5:45 am), chances of them eating something is even less likely. My oldest loves a muffin or loaf bread because it is something that he can throw into a baggy the evening before. I of course would rather them eat something healthier, but I’m a realist after all, so rather than having them skip breakfast altogether, I make it my goal to find ways to make what they will eat just a little bit healthier. This week, my son asked to “Cinnamon Muffins.” Here is my healthier version.
