BohoEATS...Beautiful Blueberry Protein Muffins

***these muffins help me stay on track in the Mornings- So easy to grab them and go! i usually Double the formula and store the other half in the freezer for the next week!(pull out of freezer and pop in microwave for 25 seconds!) you feel like you are cheating but it's really about 130 calories for 2 ! 
CELEBRITY NUTRITIONIST AND AUTHOR OF THE BEAUTY DETOX SOLUTION, Kimberly Snyder says, "Diets rich in blueberries will actually improve learning capacity and lower stress. In fact, blueberries are among the best source of antioxidants that you can easily purchase and incorporate into your diet. Berries are high in water and fiber that regulates your blood sugar while cutting your sugar cravings. This super food is loaded with phytonutrients, a natural bioactive compound that works with minerals and vitamins to ensure mental and physical health."
