I finally unboxed my new Instant Pot and have begun to experiment. I am usually not a fan of such devices, as I enjoy being in the kitchen, the smells that arise from the pot on the stove, and the traditional processes that go along with old school culinary practices. However, sometimes we just need to save time and cut corners.
Back from vacation. Over ate. Indulged, yes i did…but I did it with delight. Balance is key, and feeling good about your choices is essential. I enjoyed this time with my family and I delighted in the freedom of participating in dinners of brick oven pizza, or a small plate of fresh pasta. So now, after my week away, it’s time to repair and harvest what has grown in my garden. Here is my quick lunch for today. I used whatever I had on hand in my garden, fridge and cupboard.

I love when I have the opportunity to add super foods to a recipe. This is an amazing recipe to make for the kids as an after-school snack. It even makes a great breakfast with a scrambled egg or yogurt before school. These muffins are filled with wholesome ingredients, hemp for extra protein, amino acids, omega 3 & 6 and lots of vitamins. I have also added turmeric which has a compound called curcumin that has tremendous medicinal benefits and powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Feel free to double the amount of turmeric if you are a fan for a bigger boost! These yummy muffins pack only about 170 calories each.
