Healthy Breakfast English Muffin Recipe with Apple and Peanut Butter
I’ve discovered the two best kept secrets to a long healthy life. I’m about to reveal them. (Hint: one of them includes this delicious healthy breakfast english muffin recipe.) Are you ready?
Ok, pause for confession…maybe it’s hard to boil it down to just two. There are many things we can do to feel energized and on top of our game. In fact we’re often bombarded with options.
Sometimes I sit at my computer screen and sift through all the advice thrown at me. Exercise this much. Eat that many calories. Have coffee dates with this many friends. Buy these specific high heels. (Ok, it’s possible that last one isn’t on everyone’s list. Just mine.)
The shameful reality is, sometimes I’m so overwhelmed I just don’t do any of it. And then the cycle begins. You know the one. The crazy cycle of self-pity that none of the new year’s resolutions are sticking. So I might as well just eat that donut from the box the boss brought in…
That’s why I like the secrets I’m about to reveal. They’re easy. They’re doable. They help me start my day feeling like a rock star that accomplished something. If I can do these two small things, I can tackle the filing cabinet reorganization, right? Right. Here you go.
STEPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL START TO THE DAY
Step 1: Drink a really big glass of water before anything else. (YES, even coffee.) GASP!
Step 2: Throw together this quick and healthy breakfast english muffin recipe, and you’re off and running.
It’s that simple. When I start my day with the right choices, the rest of my day generally follows suit. I can feel good that my sweet tooth is getting a morning hug–the maple syrup is such a better option than refined sugar–and the energy boost reminds me I feel so much better all day long.
The other win:
When my kids see me quickly putting this yummy healthy english muffin recipe together, they want to help. And they can. Its that simple to make, and even easier to eat. No more mixing pancake batter, dirtying up a bunch of dishes and rushing out to school, work, yoga, and soccer practice high on carbs.
We can assemble them lickety split, and be out the door faster than you can say Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. (That’s still a thing, right?) For an even faster masterpiece, use pre-sliced apple snack packs. See? We’re all about fast and healthy around here.
So, we all know peanut butter is a tasty source of protein. We recommend this healthier natural peanut butter. Its sooooo good. Don’t worry, I’ve provided here a brilliant way to stir that natural goodness together, for ‘no mess later.’
Make sure you add this healthy breakfast english muffin recipe to your morning routine, or a pick-me-up snack in the afternoon. You’ll find yourself nibbling less on the naughty things, and have a bounce of energy in your step that your friends will envy.
