Saturday Morning Muffins

I love muffins. Who doesn't? And even more than muffins, I love healthy muffins. Never did I think there could be a muffin this healthy and this good. 

This muffin has no sugar folks. And plenty of protein and great fats. It's perfect for Saturday morning breakfast and a little snack on the road. 

My first recipe success worth sharing. Enjoy!

Makeover Muffins
Adapted from Elana's Pantry
Muffin Mixture:

1/4 tsp cardamon (opt.)
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
3 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla extract

1 Tbsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp grapeseed oil

Mix all the dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls. Then, gradually add the dry to the wet ingredients. Spoon slightly less than 1/4 cup of the mixture into muffin liners and pour a little of the oil mixture on each. Bake at 350 for about 14 minutes.

I've been made over!

You've all seen the reality tv shows based on making over a person. Or heard of the makeovers they do at the mall makeup counter. Well this is not what I'm talking about. I'm not talking about getting made over on the outside but never changing stuff on the inside.

NWC Woman's Bball Christmas Break 2010-Mashed Banana Facials

On the outside I'm a 5"10', brown haired, green eyed, 155 lb woman that lives in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I'm married to an even taller man and work in a Maximized Living Office as a chiropractic assistant. On the inside, there's much more. And today God gave me a makeover. Today God made part of me new.

Revelation 21:5  "And he who was seated on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new.""

God is making us all new every day! Did you know that every second 25 million new cells are made in our bodies?! God came and spoke life into existence and the very best part of it all was us. We are made new on the outside and the inside every SECOND. Yep, God just made you new. Yep, there He goes again. Yep, again. You get it right?

God made all things new in Genesis and in Revelation the Word says that He who is seated on the throne is still making all things new. The physical part of our lives is obviously something that most people easily understand and I know from the bottom of my heart that it teaches us so much about Him. The physical needs to be redeemed to His plan just like other areas of our lives. This is the passion He placed in my heart.....And today God made me new by helping me realize how amazing I am. I know this sounds boastful. However, I boast in Him. He created me, Kristin Marie Tigges, amazing. He says the same about you. Don't ever forget it. We are here on earth for a reason. God is doing things.  This was my makeover lesson today. I'm praising Him for how He made me...the passions he gave me, the color of my hair, my story and testimony, on and on...All those things that I've half-liked before and spent far too much time criticizing.

Do you know that you're amazing? I hope so. See today how amazing God created you. Let yourself love the imperfections that Satan wants you to hate. Love God's timing and each growth opportunity you have. Love your thighs and your laugh and the way you say the word "like" all the time when you're trying to explain something. Trust Him to make you over from the inside and out and find joy in each moment of life. Love Him in every moment by being YOU and striving to be more and more of a reflection of Him.

Praising God for you all today... Go rock the world for Him

I dare you!

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day by far. For the past 3 months, I would say 75% of the time I have some sort of smoothie. I usually am a person that gets sick of one thing over and over, but never this smoothie!
