These muffins can definitely be made in a big batch and eaten over multiple days not only for breakfast but as a great protein snack. I considered leaving out the lemon when I made them so they would just be blueberry muffins but I'm so glad I didn't. The lemon adds a little extra magic that I really enjoyed!
I made half the recipe, used frozen blueberries since I didn't have fresh ones and lined the muffin tin with parchment paper instead of using typical muffin cups, which worked great. That's been my biggest frustration with making paleo-type muffins in the past. I hated how much of the muffin stuck to the muffin paper and was wasted. I currently don't have the natural parchment muffin papers she mentions in the recipe but will definitely be picking some up!

Have you been reading The Calorie Myth this week? What do you think so far? I wanted to share a quote from it: "Our set-point determines our long-term weight. If our weight is elevated, it's because our set-point is elevated thanks to what I call a 'hormonal clog.'" What causes the hormonal clog & how do we fix it? Keep reading to find out!
