Eating protein shouldn't be a second thought. Protein is essential for building cells in our bodies and keeping homeostasis. I admit, I am not health professional, but from what I learned from my bio of human aging last quarter is the protein with the addition of many of substances such as antioxidants, low ldl foods and so forth help our body build good cells.
I know the new year is right around the corner, well just about a few days away and why not include more healthy essential foods to out diet? I mean why not? Thinking of ways to include healthy foods into my diet, I looked deep into my cupboard and threw some things together to make this healthy hemp protein muffin that is oil free! Can you believe that? Oil isn't necessary unhealthy. But I decided, why not make this an oil free muffin.
This is a very simple oil free hemp protein muffin that is great for breakfast, on the go snacking or maybe even a late night sweet tooth craving.
The ingredients that I used are very versatile and can be interchanged and still have the final product tasting yummy.
