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.

                      5 Exercises To Improve Intimacy and Create a Better Relationship

                      5 Exercises To Improve Intimacy and Create a Better Relationship

                      Making love can be simultaneously the most pleasurable and the most stressful experience that we share with another human being. It is a natural conclusion of the ritual of intimacy we engage in with a person we find attractive on both a physical and psychological level. Yet, we are far removed from our animalistic roots, and that which was once a matter of instinct has become somewhat complex. This is a good thing; we have grown as a society, and there are many factors involved when it comes to the relationship between sexual partners. However, we have also lost a great deal of the physical prowess our primitive ancestors had.

                      They engaged in a huge amount of physical activities daily — activities that ensured their cardiovascular system and muscles were in great shape, which allowed them to have healthy libidos, strong erections, and the muscular strength, limberness and endurance to maintain different positions for a long time without getting exhausted. Luckily, we can regain some of these animalistic traits with the right kind of training. Here are some essential exercises that will help improve your relationship, but making you more confident in intimate settings, which means that you’ll have more satisfying intercourse.

                        1. Cardio for Stamina

                        If you’re out of shape, the first thing you’ll notice during intercourse is that you start to breathe heavily, sweat profusely and tire easily. This means you’ll have to shift your posture frequently and limit yourself to a few positions you feel comfortable with or significantly slow down the pace. A high BMI has also been linked to potential problems with erectile dysfunction. Cardiovascular exercises like running, jumping rope, swimming and cycling will build up your aerobic stamina and enable you to perform longer before becoming fatigued, thus having better intercourse. They’ll also help manage your weight, possibly helping performance.

                        Triathlon symbol
                          • Running – 10-20 minutes a day (1-3 miles a day is more than enough)
                          • Jumping rope – 5-20 minutes a day
                          • Swimming – 30 minutes a day
                          • Cycling – 30 minutes a day

                          The time in minutes denotes time spent actively performing the exercise, and you need to factor in a bit more time for warming up before and cooling down after the exercises.

                          These exercises can be performed every day or every other day, and the goal is to work on both endurance and speed. Don’t just go at a snail’s pace; constantly try to improve your time or add some mileage.

                          2. Strength-Training for Your Lower Body and Core

                          The next thing you’ll need to focus on is improving both the strength and muscular endurance of the hip flexors, abdominals and spinal erectors. These are the muscles engaged in thrusting and circular motions, and they also stabilize your body in a number of different positions. The legs also play an important role, particularly in standing and kneeling positions. Here are a few exercises that will help you strengthen up this area:

                          Barbell squats
                            • Heavy barbell squats – set up at a power rack at the gym and make sure you use proper form and weights that you can lift 3-8 times. Do this exercise before anything else in the gym for 4-5 sets to get big and powerful legs, as well as tighten up the muscles of the core. This is useful for both men and women, particularly if you enjoy the woman-on-top positions and standing positions. You can do hack squats on the machine if your gym lacks a power rack, but you won’t get the core-strengthening benefits

                            Zercher squat
                              • Zercher squatsthis type of squat is a perfect way for guys to strengthen their body for standing positions where the woman is lifted off the ground. Build up a foundation of strength first, and then use lighter weights and go for 10-12 repetitions to focus on muscle endurance.

                              Glute bridge
                                • Glute bridgethis exercise is great for working the glutes and hip thrusters, and should be done for ultra-high reps —up to 100 — to increase muscle endurance. Once you become stronger in this movement, you can upgrade to the barbell glute bridge and keep the reps high — around 10 to 15.

                                Hyperextensions
                                  • Hyperextensions – excellent for strengthening the spinal erectors, this exercise (or a variation of it) may be done in most gyms and even at home. Do 2 to 3 sets of 10 to 12 repetitions at the end of your workout.

                                  Ab wheel rollout
                                    • Ab wheel rollout – this is a great exercise for strengthening the abs, and requires only a piece of inexpensive equipment. It will help you stay stable and hold positions longer without getting tired during intercourse. Do three sets of this workout for as many repetitions as you can.

                                    Cross body crunch
                                      • Cross body crunchthis exercise improves your ability to perform explosive twisting motions, particularly good for improving your stamina in the spoon position where you’e lying on your side. Do 2 to 3 sets of this exercise at the end of your workout.

                                      Incorporate these exercises into your routine 2 to 3 times a week.

                                      3. Upper-Body Strength Training

                                      Upper-body strength plays an important role in many popular sex positions where the arms are used to provide a stable base or hold onto the partner. These including missionary, doggy style, the stand and carry (with the woman holding onto the man’s neck) and others. Use these simple exercises to improve upper body strength and endurance:

                                      Plank exercise
                                        • Plank – while bench pressing is great for building a big chest, you will find yourself in need of static strength, muscle endurance and a strong core. This exercise is a great way to increase the amount of time you are able to hold positions that require you to support yourself with your arms. For added difficulty, straighten out your arms like at the top of a pushup and hold as long as you can.

                                        Close grip pushups
                                          • Close pushups – a pushup variation that focuses on triceps, which are the first to give out during a prolonged missionary or similar position. Go for very high reps, 20 t0 50, to work on muscle endurance.

                                          Chin ups
                                            • Chin-ups – A great upper back and biceps builder, this exercise will also target the core if you try to be as straight as possible when lifting yourself up. You can jump to help make things easier, or just hold as long as you can if you aren’t strong enough to perform a single chin up. Do 3 to 4 sets for as many reps as you can.

                                            These exercises, done about three times a week, will help you develop a strong upper body that can keep going and hold you up for extended periods of time.

                                            4. Pelvic-Floor Exercises

                                            You don’t have to perform these at the gym, although you could do them after your workout without anyone even noticing. The idea behind Kegel exercises is to improve blood flow to the sex organs and strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor in both men and women. By locating these muscles and tightening and relaxing them for intervals of 5 seconds for 10 to 15 repetitions at a time, several times a day, you can improve pleasure and performance during sex. Women can tighten their vaginal walls for increased pleasure to both them and their partner, while men can delay ejaculation by tightening these muscles.

                                            5. Flexibility Moves for Legs and Hips

                                            Lion stretching

                                              If you want to avoid getting cramps — or even worse, pulling a muscle during intercourse — you should do a few simple stretches every day. The more limber you are, the more comfortable you’ll be with more exotic poses. Here are a few simple stretches to improve hip and leg flexibility:

                                              Take a few minutes to warm up with some light running or jumping jacks before stretching, and spend some 10 minutes on these stretches. You can do them in the morning and at night, or shortly before intercourse.

                                              With just a few hours a week devoted to exercise, you can improve your relationship significantly. If you focus on these exercises, over time, you just might become dynamite in bed.
