One of the most common complaints I hear about healthy eating is that it takes too long. Eating out or heating something up in the microwave just seems so much more convenient.
Even though I love to cook, I also love shortcuts and easy recipes. I roast all my veggies during a weekly meal-prep session, I make most of my sauces and toppings in a blender (30 seconds or less!), and I’m a fan of the fastest protein source: an egg.
Is it a good or a bad sign that these carrot quinoa muffins were the highlight of our weekend trip to New York City? I’m going to say a very good sign. We had an amazing weekend visiting friends, attending an awesome, dance-filled wedding, walking all over lower Manhattan, eating great food, and drinking delicious coffee. Quite a lot to fit in to 72 hours. Luckily, on our first morning in town, we were able to take a relaxing morning with my friend Jess to make breakfast together.
