Blueberry Muffins

Recipe by Meera Bhogal

The recipe below works well as a snack or breakfast and one you can batch cook at the weekends too! It includes good fats, protein in the form of eggs and chia and flaxseeds, as well as fiber. The nuts and egg yolks are a great source of choline and pumpkin seeds provide a good amount of zinc. This combination will help maintain blood sugar levels as well as nourishing your mind and body. Plus, it will also reduce the afternoon slump, which we are often susceptible to, given our busy working lives.
