Today I had the most beautiful and relaxing breakfast. I mean, would you look at this food?! It looked so good I almost couldn’t eat it. KIDDING, that’s just not humanly possible.
I always try and eat lots of grapefruit because of the seriously awesome health benefits you get. Grapefruit is low in calories (!!!) and super high in nutrients. There is tons of Vitamin C in grapefruit, so I always chow down on one of these if I am feeling a cold coming on. In addition to boosting your immune system, grapefruit will: increase your metabolism (sign me up!!), prevent wrinkles, brighten your complexion, decrease junk food cravings, and increase energy. Any natural food that increases my energy is basically a done deal for me. I don’t know about you guys, but I swear there are never enough hours in the day! I like being busy, so it is nice to feel alert and energized all day long.
Okay so to the muffin. Let’s be clear here, I rarely eat muffins… if ever. They are usually just (as my Dad likes to call them) “lard pucks.” Hahaha. But really, they are just filled with straight up butter (not a healthy amount, a stupid amount) and tons of refined sugar and other nasty stuff we don’t even need to talk about.
This muffin though? 110% yes, yes, and yes again. All honesty here: I definitely did not make this one. The convenience of popping into Whole Foods and picking this precious little baby up was too real. Anyyyyways, this muffin is perfectly Skinny Belle because it is completely vegan, made with squash, has very little oil (often sneaks in as the first ingredient in “healthy vegan recipes,”) and barely any sugar. Winning! Where is the fail? I totally forgot to get the name for you guys! Even though I buy this all the time I have a tendency to just point at it and say “that one.” (Oops) I will get back to you on this, promise! 🙂
