Blueberry Muffins.

Today, I started out with one of these goodies that I had made last night:

The best blueberry and oat lemon zest muffins. How’s that for a name??

I’ll just shoot straight and give you the recipe right away. These are the best muffins I’ve ever had. No joke…

A day in the mouth…

What I ate Wednesday!

Unfortunately, today’s food wasn’t exciting.

I had an extremely busy day and when I had 10 min to eat dinner, nothing sounded good.

That is an extremely RARE thing for me.

Breakfast was a hit with some oatmeal, fruit and coffee!

Later, I ate this delish nanner:

And then I ate a ton of M&Ms and cookies during the workshop i did so I wasn’t totally hungry for lunch but felt I should eat real food:

An English muffin with humus, spinach and a garden burger! Y-U-M!!

I proceeded to have not M&Ms and then went to the gym!

After the gym I had to quickly write a paper before seeing Bridesmaids with friends, so I made this:

Strawberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, pineapple, almond milk, yogurt, spinach and cinnamon! Phew, that’s a lot.

After the hilarious movie, I went home to have some hot chocolate and finish my paper.
