Today I’m celebrating a few things. One being our move and the purchase of our first home, and the second that LCK turns ONE this week. I am so grateful for this journey; for the people I’ve met (and those I have only virtually met), and for the opportunities that have come my way. I never would have imagined that my passion could grow and impact so many of you in just a short year. Today, I am thankful for all of you; for continuing to read, try recipes, and communicate with me on a daily basis. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I hope my little blog continues to impact you and help you on your clean eating journey, or whatever journey you may be on.

Now, let’s talk muffins. Seriously, these are the best way to sneak zucchini into your picky child/husband/partner/family member’s food. You can even peel the zucchini so they’ll be invisible within the muffin and your picky eaters will never know the difference! Grab one when you are running out the door, or for a guilt-free mid-day snack. They freeze well, too!
