Paleo Egg Muffins

It’s really nice to be able to stray from my exclusive figure competition diet now.  I’ve been eating the same meals at the same time each day for months and now suddenly, I don’t have to.  I’ve got to be honest, I’m a bit lost as to what to do with myself. In doing…

Showtime | NPC Western Regionals

Pumpkin Pie Protein Muffins

Home stretch people!  Just two days until my NPC show and I can’t tell you how many bags I have in my freezer of muffins, cookies and things I’ve baked and shared and only just stared at.  My time is coming.  This time next week I will be eating very clean still, but…
