Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins
This is a great recipe for Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins. If you are searching for blueberry breakfast recipes, this is definitely one to try out. Having a good, hearty breakfast is the key to starting any day off well. We all need a good, nutritional breakfast to fuel our brains and bodies to work for us throughout the day. Many people who do not eat breakfast in the morning have difficulty focusing or making it through the day without getting really tired. Our breakfast also sets our metabolism for the day, so if you start out with a good breakfast, your body will be less likely to store and hang onto excess fat, which is what happens when it thinks it it going into starvation. Kids especially need a good solid breakfast to start out their day of learning and playing at school. Plus, they are always growing, so they need the proper nutrition that will give them all of the vitamins and minerals they need for a healthy brain and body. People who have very physically demanding jobs also need some good fuel to start off their day, but so do people who have mentally demanding jobs.
A quick and easy cornbread recipe will give you and your family a great breakfast to look forward to in the morning. It has all of the blueberry nutrition which includes high amounts of vitamin B6 and C, as well as manganese and iron. Blueberries are also high in dietary fibre while being low in sodium and cholesterol. You can also make these cornbread muffins gluten free by altering the ingredients in the recipe. For example, if you wanted the recipe to be gluten free, you could add in an all purpose gluten free flour blend into the recipe, and you could even make it sugar free by replacing the refined sugar with xylitol or stevia which has a lower glycemic index than all other sugars. Eating something too sugary in the morning can cause your blood pressure to spike and then crash, which will make you feel really tired in the long run. This recipe is already vegan since it doesn't include any dairy or eggs in it, so it is a vegan friendly recipe. This quick and easy cornbread recipe will go over really well for breakfast and may even become a regular item on your breakfast menu. You could also pair it with a nice healthy fruit smoothie with some greens for optimum health benefits.
