The beginning of a new year is a time of reflection, change, and growth. In particular, eating habits come under scrutiny and become a focal point for much of this reflection. This year, I’ve been thinking about nutrition and how I can maximize the benefits and balance in my own daily diet. In particular, adding more protein is a goal for 2023. In walks Naked Nutrition to save the protein day!
From carline to conference calls to endless mounds of laundry, a working mom has little to no time to think about herself. It’s always a frantic dash to get from point A to point B, while making sure your rugrats are healthy and thriving. But in reality, if mom isn’t also healthy and thriving, then everyone suffers. After 7 years and two kids, this realization is just now starting to sink into my brain. I am often running on fumes and grabbing the closest sugary bite to keep the engines running, completely at the cost of my own wellbeing. Endless drive-thru breakfasts and caffeine refueling can be quite exhausting. But this year it’s time for a change. Mama’s going to treat herself for once and focus on her own prosperity. And that starts with one small baby step in the direction of protein.
This last month, I have carved out a 40 minute slot on weekends to take a proactive approach to my own health. Seriously, it only takes 40 minutes and Naked Nutrition by your side, to meal prep a weeks worth of heavenly, protein- forward muffins to fuel your mommy batteries. Naked Nutrition has an array of products geared towards maximizing your wellbeing, and their line of bread and pancake mixes are the bomb. Packed with protein and straightforward ingredients, you’ll feel like you’re indulging in a delicious breakfast while actually refueling your depleted tanks for the busy day ahead.
Whether you’re following the directions on the container or improvising with a little extra fruit, these mixes are a must-add to your weekly meal prep routine. In fact, I’m going to show you the ridiculously easy way I customize Naked Nutrition’s Naked Bake to add a bit of whole oats and fruit to my mornings. Who’s up for some Oat Berry Banana Muffins?!
Oat Berry Banana Muffins
Time: 40 min.; Serves: 6
1 cup Naked Bake Banana Protein Mix

And that is it, my tired mommy friends. With 10 minutes of prep and another 30 minutes of baking, you have yourself breakfast for the rest of the week. And not just any empty calorie, sugar-filled breakfast you could pick up quickly at a drive-thru. I’m talking a balanced, energy-packed, protein muffin that will sustain you for the busy hours to come.
