Morning Motivation: Ginger Bread Muffin


Happy Monday ! Let’s get motivated this morning but with a sweet twist ! Food is so good during the holiday season and we need balance. Balance means eating food that taste great but also have some healthy benefits. We encourage balance because Obesity in the United States is a major health issue, resulting in numerous diseases, specifically increased risk of certain types of cancer, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, as well as significant increases in early mortality. Obesity is at an all time high in America but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy great food while taking care of bodies and enhancing our lifestyle. This morning we have a delicious ginger bread muffin recipe that is protein packed, gluten free, soy free, and dairy free! Want the recipe? Sure you do and we have you covered .
