“I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry.” – me, on the days I don’t eat breakfast

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day, with the support of my close friends and family who know to steer clear before I’ve had my fill in the morning. Breakfast is one of those rare opportunities where savory and sweet converge—a taco and a pancake can share the same plate without breaking any rules. Plus, enjoying a nourishing, delicious meal is the best way to start the day, especially before “hangriness” ensues. What we put into our bodies directly affects how we feel, and having a consistent morning meal routine has been linked to improved physical and mental health. But with the excess calories and sugar in traditional breakfasts, the intermittent fasting craze, and protein bars galore, breakfast is sometimes neglected or replaced these days. But breakfast doesn’t have to weigh you down, even if you’re on the go.

When it comes to a meal prep item you’ll actually enjoy, you really can’t go wrong with a classic muffin. There’s something about these warm, gooey, flavor-packed pastries that feel like home, and make for the most comforting weekend activity as we head into baking season. Plus, there are tons of healthy muffin recipes out there that are packed with nutrients and will leave you feeling good and fueled for the day ahead. We’ve rounded up some of the best muffin recipes around. Of course, there’s no shortage of pumpkin-centric muffin recipes in here that will make you want to fire up the oven instantly.
