Fuel your Morning with These Protein Muffin Recipes

May 21 2019

In this article:

It has long been said that making the time to have a healthy breakfast is key to starting the day. Breakfast need not be a large meal as long as it includes superfoods. Consider enjoying a cup of tea with a protein muffin.

Choose a Protein Muffin to Start the Day

Muffins are easy to make in advance and store in the refrigerator or freezer for later consumption. These recipes include complex carbohydrates and bodybuilding proteins, which offer sufficient fuel until there's time for a mid-morning snack or lunch. These recipes also incorporate whole grains for fiber, which tends to digest more slowly in order to help people feel full longer. It's also smart to include antioxidant-rich fruit in the muffins. The right ingredients create a nice blend of complex carbs to fuel the body in the morning.
