As much as the health world idolizes the beauty of eating poached eggs and greens for breakfast – sometimes we just can’t hold back from our morning sweet tooth! Sometimes fluffy muffins, crunchy cereals and chewy choc-chip cookies are calling your name and the last thing on your mind is eggs and kale?!
Instead of fighting cravings, let’s embrace them! Listening to your cravings is so important and can indicate a lot about what you’re needing both emotionally and physically and can help to highlight the foods that you may have become addicted to.
If you’re craving chocolate, it could mean you're magnesium deficient. Magnesium is available in fish, dark leafy greens and nuts. Craving sweet foods like pastries, white bread and pasta may mean that you're chromium deficient. Chromium can be found in oats, sweet potatoes and eggs.
Thinking about cravings rationally and listening to them can help us lead healthier and happier lives. So instead of ignoring cravings, why not just make healthier choices and fill up with healthy versions of favourite foods?
I'd love to introduce you to my delicious No More Muffin Top Muffin recipe and I’ve made sure that they'll not only improve your gut health and waistline but also fill your daily ‘eggs and greens’ quota!
If you’re not already on the healthified sweets train, these muffins will make you jump on board! Forget the traditional, sugar-filled, gluten-packed muffins and swap to a new world of healthy, refined-sugar free and absolutely tasty muffins. There are no strange ingredients here – just healthy wholesome baking ingredients.
Who could pass up the chance to start the day with fluffy, yummy muffins? The chromium-packed eggs and vitamin-filled zucchini make sure these beautiful muffins stay moist, while my Love Your Gut powder (a raw vegan plant-based whole food) ensures that you're getting good gut-healing straight off the bat.
Love Your Gut powder is high in absorbable iron which helps to support tiredness and fatigue but doesn't leave you constipated like traditional synthetic iron supplements do. That way you can get your necessary iron via real plant-based foody-goodness.
Magnesium-packed almond-meal is a delicious gluten-free flour that is great for baking so I threw it into the mix too. This recipe also contains a touch of butter, which contains healthy saturated fats and fat-soluble vitamins. Butter helps these baked treats stay fluffy and keep their texture. Yum!
So, make up a batch and let me know what you think? They freeze well too!
No More Muffin Top Muffins
Makes 6 large or 12 small muffins
Make these the day before and then just warm them in the oven for 10 minutes before enjoying. They're surprisingly filling and full of veggie goodness. Take them as a snack to work or give them to the kids for lunch too.
