Let’s talk about blueberries. People love them and I am sure it’s a great fruit for our health. I have to admit that I’ve never been really keen on this fruit as a child, maybe it was because I had a super sweet tooth and I found it just not too sweet for me. Definitely, I was a bigger fan of watermelon and strawberries. 🙂 I was wondering what kind of benefits are included in the blueberries and how can I make consuming easier for myself, as I eat the blueberries uncommonly.
The blueberries are really low in calories but high in nutrition, it’s antioxidant, it’s keeping your blood pressure lower and can prevent you from heart diseases. I was surprised about the benefits of improving memory or helping with brain functions. Also, it’s a little helper with diabetes. I am sure there are plenty more benefits that are contained in that fruit, but let’s get back to the recipe. That’s actually the way how I make myself to consume some extra blueberries. 🙂
Sugar, sugar … Honey Honey
You are my candy girl… It’s a time to have a chat about sugar and why I’ve stated make desserts and food without containing sugar I didn’t know a lot about sugar and how badly affect our health. I will be honest but I love sweets and sugary things and also think I’ve been addicted all my life. When I was a child I was really stuck with sweet meals and candies and maybe it was without knowledge, but sugar was actually absolutely fine to consume. Well, we knew that is bad for our teeth, but that was basically everything.
This recipe is sugary but, also I believe that we should keep balance in our lives and a little bit of sugar is going to make us happier. Feel free to swap sugar for sweetener, as it will cut some calories and it’s not too addictive for you.
The best way how to cut sugar
If you are thinking about cutting sugar products or meals the best way is starting a low-carb diet or Keto diet. These diets are more focus on consuming fats than carbs. If you wish to cut sugar from your baking I would recommend alcohol sweeteners as they taste great in the cakes and they are low in calories. Also, some liquid sweeteners are helpful. Try agave, stevia or keto syrups.
It’s much easier to cut sugar than you think. It’s annoying that almost all products are containing some sugar, if you want to get rid of that you will need to read labels and be more preparing homemade meals. But it’s worth it, trust me!
How to stored the muffins
They are really fluffy and tasty for a few days but if you wish to keep them fresh for a long time I recommend putting them inside a plastic bag and leave them in the bread box or container. The muffins should be fresh and tasty for one week.
