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.

                      12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

                      12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

                      Christmas is approaching fast, and lots of people not only tend to ruin their usual diets, but they also gain a few extra pounds. Based on studies, the majority of people tend to gain additional weight during the holiday season that starts at the Thanksgiving Day and ends with the New Year celebrations. Excessive eating is claimed to be the main cause for the additional weight gain, but it is also due to lack of physical activity and exercise.

                      A lot of individuals out there tend to set aside their fitness routines during the holidays since they believe that they do not have enough time to perform their workouts. And because they feel guilty after the holiday season, most of the gyms and fitness centers are packed with fresh members. Always bear in mind that you can still enjoy the holidays and stay fit at the same time. If you want to stay fit during the holiday season, especially during Christmas and the New Year’s Eve, here are some useful tips that might help you:

                      1. Eat Before Heading Out

                      First, it is best that you eat something before heading out to visits, trips or family dinners. By doing so, you will no longer be tempted to eat a lot or overindulge yourself since you have already eaten. Skipping on meals is not a good idea either, because you will only be forced to eat more later.

                      2. Select The Treats

                      Make sure to select the treats that you eat in a wise manner. You should choose something that you can only enjoy during the holiday season and not something that is readily available all the time.

                      3. Avoid Skipping Meals

                      Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast! Even though it can be tempting to skip on certain meals, believing that it will make up for the treats you consumed in the previous day, don’t do it because it will only lead to counterproductive results.

                      4. Drink With Moderation

                      It is best to regulate your drinking since alcohol, coke or other juices will only add more calories to the ones you already eaten!

                      5. Be Active

                      You should still perform your fitness routine whenever possible and if you can’t do that, simply walk more, park your car some distance away from the store or just use the stairs!

                      6. Get Out Of The House

                      Make the holidays a family affair and plan outdoor activities where everyone is involved. Even a snowball fight in the backyard will burn a lot of calories and will keep the children entertained.

                      7. Don’t Skip Your Strength Workouts

                      Always remember to perform your strength training in order to maintain that muscle mass you worked hard to get. You might be tempted to use lightweights and just do some cardio, but you can burn just as many calories by lifting weights. And with all of those extra stakes you had on the holiday meals, you might even gain some extra muscle. And this is much better than gaining some extra fat.

                      8. Set Realistic Goals

                      You should set realistic exercise objectives. Aim for at least half an hour per day and you will be very happy when you will achieve that. If you plan one hour or more and not achieve it, you will only end up disappointed.

                      9. Enjoy Yourself

                      Also make sure to set realistic diet plans! Trying to restrain yourself totally from some foods will only make you eat more. Feel free to enjoy the treats that you really love, but in small portions.

                      10. Drink A Lot Of Water

                      This can satiate your appetite as well as keep you hydrated at all times. And it will also prevent a possible hangover if you overdo it with alcohol.

                      11. Eat Less And More Often

                      Distribute your meals evenly throughout the day, and do not eat everything at once.  Instead of having 2 enormous meals, have 5 small ones.  Eat your dinner earlier and have a nice walk before going to bed.

                      12. Prioritize Your Workouts

                      Try to do them early in the morning while everyone else is still sleeping. This way you will also avoid remarks like “Oh, come on! It’s Christmas…”

                      So there you go! Twelve simple tips that will help you avoid gaining weight during the winter holidays, but will also allow you to enjoy yourself and have a great time with your loved ones.

                      Happy Holidays everyone!
