I have been training like crazy with Andrew at Aspire Health and Performance and I am thrilled with what we have been doing. As the work continues one thing becomes abundantly clear; what happens in the kitchen is just as important to your goals as training. This side of things is a big challenge for me. Thankfully I have a lot of places to turn for help from people that really know what they are talking about. The Aspire blog regularly posts recipes and insight that I appreciate along with family and friends who often send suggestions. My sister sent me a breakfast idea that has really worked well for me.
I made some minor changes to the original recipe and now have this almost every morning.
Flax Muffin in a Mug
1 tsp. butter
1 egg slightly beaten
1/4 cup ground flax meal
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 mashed banana or handful of blueberries.. or both (the banana makes it moister and the blueberries sweeter)
*nuts would also be good
Spray a mug with non stick spray, add butter and microwave for a few seconds to melt it. Add the rest of the ingredients to the mug, stir and micowave for one minute. (It takes 1:15 in my microwave)
When muffin is done, just turn it out onto a plate.
It’s not pretty… but it tastes good and takes under 5 minutes to make!
