Fantastic Foodie Friday~Jorge's Skinny Muffin & Lemon~Limeade~

Jorge’s Skinny Muffin
Traditional energy bars are often packed with sugar, which can cause a spike and a subsequent crash. These muffins are designed to provide sustainable energy that lasts through lunch, thanks to coconut oil, a healthy fat that’s good for your brain, fiber-rich flaxseed and egg protein.

1/4 cup ground flax
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon ( I used Cassia Cinnamon from Penzeys Spices )
1 tsp coconut oil
1 egg
1 packet stevia ( I used Truvia )

Mix all ingredients together in a mug and microwave for 50 seconds. 
Allow to cool to a safe temperature and enjoy!


A daily dose of vitamin C can help reduce fatigue and boost alertness. In addition to the vitamin C, citrus scents have been shown to stimulate alertness. By using stevia, a natural sweetener, you won’t have to worry about blood sugar spikes. Use a few mint leaves for a touch of flavor.

4 lemons
3 limes
1 tbsp stevia ( I used Truvia )
Fresh Mint

Squeeze the juice from both the lemons and the lime into a glass. Add the stevia and mint leaves, and stir. Enjoy!  
My side note~ I have to tell you that I used a juicer & by the time I got done with the Lemons & Limes I had a big glass of citrus, but one that I could not drink the way it was.  For me, it was to acidic on my stomach.  
Instead of scrapping it all I added the glass of citrus to a pitcher, then I filled it the rest of the way up with ice cold water.  Added the mint & Truvia and it was delightful!   
This will be a refreshing way to replace the once beloved "Country Time Lemonade" in my house!
