HPT Lemon Berry Protein Muffins

If you're an HPT client you know we love a diet that is balanced, but shifted towards: clean-lean proteins, smart fats, and low-glycemic load carbs. This can be easy to do for lunch and dinner, but may get really boring for breakfast. Very few snack options exist, and carrying eggs around in a cooler can get old. In her attempt to always provide guests at our house with a high-protein, steady energy, nutrient dense breakfast, Ruth has done it again. She created a balanced meal, that can be eaten for breakfast, or used as a snack (and you don't even need a cooler).
Eat 3 or more of these for a meal or 1 or as a snack. They can even kill a carb craving at night time!
