I woke up yesterday morning (Saturday), wanting to make something different. I wanted to try my hand at making my own organic, non-GMO, corn tortillas… so I set out to source the ingredients and to purchase a tortilla press. My first stop was Bed Bath and Beyond to buy the press, but they had no such item, and so I left the store figuring that I would just order it online and I would purchase organic pre-made tortillas at the market. Done.

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.
This recipe literally takes 5 minutes to make and they are so delicious and healthy. You can really get creative with and add any number of things. You could add a liqueur like amaretto, or grand marnier. You could add flaked coconut or ginger. Play around with it. They are super yummy.
I am always looking for salads that are creative, unexpected and refreshing. You can perk up your everyday salad by just having a few fresh ingredients in the house and having a supreme vinaigrette recipe. I love to make a lemon vinaigrette that I can keep in a glass jar in the fridge. As long as I have something green, and maybe some fruit, I know I can whip up a fast delicious salad that will satisfy!
