Struggling With Quick Healthy Breakfast Options? Start Your Morning With These 10 Healthy Muffins Ideas!

Keeping fit is no easy task. However, for the sake of your health, the pan and difficulty are worth it. There are a lot of aspects to keeping yourself in good health. You could try exercising, yoga and meditation, in the guidance of expert yoga teacher and trainer. However, none of these will mean anything if you don’t eat right food.

Today, one of the most consumed pastries is muffin. If you want to lose weight, there’s a very high chance that you’ve been told to keep off muffins. However, we have helped compile a list of foods that include muffins which you can enjoy and which pose no threats to your health or fitness goals.

1. Pumpkin Oat Muffins

    You don’t necessarily have to stick to basic or bland tastes whenever you are consuming anything with muffin flavors in it and the Pumpkin Oat Muffin is a perfect example of just how exciting and delicious the addition of muffins can be when added to the perfect breakfast. With the addition of applesauce and pumpkin puree, these cakes will have a more sophisticated and appealing look and taste. They also get a lot of moisture content due to the presence of sufficient oil. All in all, they will rock your taste buds for sure.

    2. Pineapple Ginger Oatmeal Muffins

      Please, try your possible best not to fall too much in love with these scrumptious-looking (and tasting too, if I might add) muffins. In my opinion, I think the most amazing thing about these little beauties is that there is no sugar added to them. However, this is probably because they don’t need it at any rate. Due to the presence of the pineapple, you can rest assured that they’ll still taste awesome regardless of the sugar absence.

      3. Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

        If you’re looking for a beautifully crafted and mastered mix of flavors, you can give Blueberries and Oatmeal a fair consideration. With an abundance of superfoods like walnuts and chia seeds, Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins can provide you with more than enough energy that you’ll need for your day without eventually taking a toll on you.

        4. Eggless Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

          With this treat, you don’t have to worry about the absence of eggs. Instead, the muffin batter is perfectly held together by mashed bananas. These mashed bananas also help in creating a solid texture. The crushed walnuts, apart from providing that much needed crunchy feeling to the whole meal, also provides the protein that you would have gotten from the absent eggs.

          5. Apple Zucchini Muffins

            Remember zucchini bread? Well, these muffins share a striking similarity to it in terms of both appearance and taste. With a lot of oats and Greek yogurt, you can be sure of an abundance of protein and probiotics. You can also add a little bit of Zucchini for some Vitamin C and Manganese.

            6. Blueberry Peach Quinoa Oatmeal Muffins

              Give your classic blueberry muffin a much needed healthy facelift for a change. Made with quinoa flour (which, by the way, possesses a much bitter taste than the regular flour), this gluten-free muffin contains a little mote of protein and much lesser carbs than what you’ll otherwise get from your average muffin oatmeal treat. However, the added Quinoa shouldn’t restrict of scare you; it’s still a delight to the taste buds.

              7. Vegetarian Upside Down Citrus Muffins

                Upside down isn’t a bad way to start the day, is it? With 200 calories and an assortment of exotic citrus, this recipe contains an extremely low amount of calories [1] and will do pretty well for your taste buds. Bai Bubbles and a carbonated drink give these muffins their famously dome-like appearance and also provide a naturally sweet flavor that is only made even better by fresh oranges.

                8. Carrot Oatmeal Muffins

                  In case you’re not familiar with these beautiful treats, you can look at the like mini carrot cakes. Shredded carrots are used to add a little moisture to the muffins while simultaneously bringing some needed fiber and Vitamin A to the table. If you’re looking for a muffin treat to just bake and store ahead of time, Carrot Oatmeal Muffins are the go-to choice for you. You can also add some walnuts for that crunchy feeling.

                  9. Chocolate Truffle Pumpkin Muffins

                    If you’re trying your best not to make a batch of cupcakes, these lovelies will serve as an awesome alternative. With a chocolate treat embedded in each one, you can be sure that great taste is just one of the many things that they gave to offer.

                    10. Sweet Potato Almond Butter Muffins

                      With 8 grams of fats and protein apiece, these vegetarian treats provide a well-balanced diet. However, these 8 grams of fats come from very health and non-harmful sources such as almond butter, coconut oil, and flax seed, so you don’t have to worry about adding some unwanted weight.

                      How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                      How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                      Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

                      You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

                      Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

                      1. Work on the small tasks.

                      When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

                      Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

                      2. Take a break from your work desk.

                      Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

                      Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

                      3. Upgrade yourself

                      Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

                      The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

                      4. Talk to a friend.

                      Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

                      Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

                      5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

                      If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

                      Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

                      Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

                      6. Paint a vision to work towards.

                      If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

                      Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

                      Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

                      7. Read a book (or blog).

                      The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

                      Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

                      Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

                      8. Have a quick nap.

                      If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

                      9. Remember why you are doing this.

                      Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

                      What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

                      10. Find some competition.

                      Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

                      Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

                      11. Go exercise.

                      Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

                      Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

                      As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

                      Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

                      12. Take a good break.

                      Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

                      Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

                      Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
