Jorge’s Skinny Muffin
Traditional energy bars are often packed with sugar, which can cause a spike and a subsequent crash. These muffins are designed to provide sustainable energy that lasts through lunch, thanks to coconut oil, a healthy fat that’s good for your brain, fiber-rich flaxseed and egg protein.
Makes one serving
1/4 cup ground flax
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp coconut oil
1 packet stevia
Mix all ingredients together in a mug and microwave for 50 seconds. Allow to cool to a safe temperature and enjoy!
A daily dose of vitamin C can help reduce fatigue and boost alertness. In addition to the vitamin C, citrus scents have been shown to stimulate alertness. By using stevia, a natural sweetener, you won’t have to worry about blood sugar spikes. Use a few mint leaves for a touch of flavor.
1 tbsp stevia
Squeeze the juice from both the lemons and the lime into a glass. Add the stevia and mint leaves, and stir. Enjoy!
