Healthy Eats

I have a confession

When I was younger, I would see other kids cut the top of a muffin off, eat the top only and leave the bottom untouched. Like the kids that would cut off the crust of white bread. I never understood why, and it kind of puzzled me—but I had my own thing going on. I was THAT kid that would take the topping off of the old-school “rectangular” pizza, roll up the dough into a little wrap, then dip my topping in ketchup. I know that sounds weirdly hilarious, but as kids we did the strangest things—and then somehow it manifested into something cool!

When I discovered VitaTops MuffinTops for the first time, I seriously felt like I missed out on all of the fun growing up. Not saying anyone should adopt my old pizza/roll-up habit either, but there’s something about a MuffinTop!  When it comes to muffins, you have to admit…it’s like a party on the top and business-casual on the bottom. Muffins are wonderful, but what normally keeps me away from them is the calorie factor.

VitaTops MuffinTops Wild Blueberry

I love VitaTops MuffinTops, because they are perfect for breakfast, and they are guilt-free! I’m always looking for healthy ways to enjoy a breakfast that takes minimal preparation, and one that will fit into my busy lifestyle. VitaTops MuffinTops are also a great option while on-the-go and perfect for a snack-time indulgence.

I have Wild Blueberry (74% organic) and Deep Chocolate (76% organic) in my stash right now. I still haven’t decided which flavor is my favorite. There are so many amazing flavors, so it’s hard to pick a fav. How does this sound? Organic Deep Chocolate, Organic Wild Blueberry, Superfood CranBran, Protein Banana Chocolate Chip, Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Chip (gluten free). Those flavors sound amazing, right?!

VitaTops MuffinTops Deep Chocolate

Honestly, truly…because I LOVE chocolate and peanut butter so much, I would definitely indulge in a Deep Chocolate or Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter VitaTops MuffinTop for dessert. If I’m feeling adventurous, I’ll have both. Trust me, you CAN! Just add a little whipped topping and some fresh berries, then you will have yourself a sweet treat! And because VitaTops have clean, simple ingredients and a wide range of nutritional benefits, I can enjoy this yummylicious dessert for under 300 calories!

In my previous post, I mentioned that 2016 will be the year of celebrating non-scale victories! There are so many things we can bring out the party favors for other than the numbers on the scale. I often times get overwhelmed and frustrated if I don’t have a plan. That’s why I think it’s important […]

I absolutely love game day because it’s a great time to enjoy football, fun, and good eats. Let’s be honest, football takes the sideline when it comes to food. I’m always brainstorming about or menu items to prepare for game day. Having foods that everyone can enjoy that offers versatility is always a plus! I […]

I’ve seen these little breakfast muffins on Pinterest and a friend of mine makes them regularly as breakfast-on-the-go. I had some eggs I needed to use so I decided to give them a test drive. I didn’t go to the store to grab anything special,  I just used whatever I had in my fridge to make this […]
