Apple Cinnamon Recovery Muffins  & Do it yourself Recovery Drank

I made these quick muffins and recovery drink to have on hand after my intense MommiesRfit Bootcamp workouts and after my training runs. (As Tony says, “The recovery drinks, that’s why I do the workouts.”) The muffins are about 50% carbs and 20% protein, the drink 100% carbs, (49 g carbs, plus sodium,potassium, and vitamins). A serving of the drink and one muffin total just about 300 calories.

Tuesday Night Blueberry ¡Wonder! Muffins

These are a great quick muffin that can be made with many things you may have in your pantry…I have included the different variations so you can try with whatever you have on hand. I call them Tuesday Night muffins because many times I have thrown them together when I realize within 30 minutes I need a snack to share at bible study. Also great for quick breakfasts, lunchboxes and brunches! They are high in soluble and insoluble fiber from the chia seeds and fruit, as well as a bit of protein and are tasty, cinnamon-y and versatile to boot.     Tuesday Night Blueberry ¡Wonder!
