2 things I’m really into right now:
- Ground flaxseeds
- Chia Seeds
Well as much as I loveeee Colorado it is a very dry state. I guess it’s allowed to have one downfall 🙂 And because of this my nails have gotten more brittle & my skin more dry.
Ground Flaxseeds help support healthy skin, hair and nails.
Chia seeds are a valuable source of fiber and support cardiovascular and brain health as well.
Both Ground Flaxseeds and Chia Seeds are high in Alpha-lipoic acid or ALA, which is a naturally occurring compound that’s made in the body. It serves vital functions at the cellular level, such as energy production.
Basically I like to think of these 2 ingredients as a power source and I’ve been trying to incorporate them into at least one meal each day. And what better to incorporate them in but delicious and healthy muffins?!
So get ready to indulge in these yummy muffins!
