What's For Breakfast?

Posted on 20 January, 2016 at 16:35 Comments comments (369)

Breakfast is always a necessity for me to start my day. On the days I am rushing out the door, I want a healthy breakfast to take with me. I will often make these Walnut Chia Blueberry Banana Muffins and freeze them in individual bags so I can grab one, heat it up and go. For a little extra protein, pair it with a hard boiled egg and you have a quick and healthy breakfast to go. Enjoy!
