These muffins surely are scrumptious!  I’m sure many of you pair sweet potatoes with Thanksgiving, however, my tasty ‘Sweet Potato Muffins’ are the perfect snack all year round.  Sweet potatoes can be found in your local markets year-round, however, they are in season in November and December.  They are an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese, a good source of vitamin B6, copper, dietary fiber, iron and potassium.  Due to their excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), sweet potatoes have healing properties as an antioxidant food.  Both vitamin C and beta-carotene are powerful antioxidants that work in the body to eliminate free radicals.  Since these nutrients are also anti-inflammatory, they can aid in reducing inflammation.

Enjoy these muffins with your breakfast, as a mid-afternoon snack or as a treat for dessert.  I enjoy these muffins toasted with a nice spread of almond butter.  My clients and I love eating these muffins crumbled into morning oatmeal or lunchtime salads for an extra flavor boost!

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
