Beautiful walk to the beach with the kids and dog! It was sunny, warm, spacious and just what we needed. AND there wasn't any complaining! Thankful for our gorgeous home & planet!

Yeah, it's been sitting in that same spot untouched all day. Mason has completely hit his limit with this "distance learning". And I'll be honest I'm almost ready to call it summer break already(a month early)! It was going so well until about 2 weeks ago when his defiant personality decided it was done with this type of schooling, and depression and social anxiety in full swing! Isolation is so tough on ours/everyone's mental health and I don't know if we can take anymore of it!

2020 is the year I told myself I'd start focusing on a healthier lifestyle and one thing I've been working on is eating a plant based diet. I've still got a ways to go but I'll get there and so far I feel great! 🌳I've partnered with LightLife to bring you this post, but all opinions are my own. One thing I'm new to is tempeh, after eating the vegan tacos I made, I'm totally sold! I made these amazing tacos with sweet potatoes and Lightlife Original Tempeh. I didn't miss the meat at all!
🌳Tempeh can be used for a number of meals as a protein replacement, available for purchase at your local grocery store(I've found ours at Fred Meyer and @imperfectfoods ) typically for $3.49. Easy to prep, vegan certified, has a savory and slightly nutty flavor, non-GMO and 12g of protein.

Zucchini, Apple and Carrot Muffins

Sharing is caring!

Looking for a delicious healthy muffin recipe?! I’m always trying to come up with recipes that include healthy ingredients especially vegetables. Vegetables are the number one hated food item in my household.

These muffins are very good and a great way to get those veggies eaten. Everyone, including your children will gobble these right up. They make a great snack, breakfast or dessert. We love to add a little butter to them also.

They are so easy to make, if you have a good processor you can grate the carrots, apples and zucchini in a matter of seconds. If you’d like to make a couple batches, these freeze really well too.

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin tins or add liners.

In a large bowl or stand mixer; stir eggs, oil and vanilla. Add grated carrots, zucchini and apples. Stir together until all fruit/veggies are mixed well.

Gradually add flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and baking powder into the bowl. If batter becomes too thick for the mixer, fold it in.

Pour into muffin tin, at least 3/4 full.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, lower oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Move to a cooling rack and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
