Good Evening.

This afternoon while I was working at the hospital I got a text from my husband. “There was a bombing at the Boston Marathon”.  I told a few of my coworkers and we immediately pulled up the news.  The TV in the break room was covered with the awful news.

Shock, was my initial reaction.  All of those who qualified and had been pouring their hearts into training for this one day, was now ruined. We should be celebrating when all of those runners crossed that finish line, but instead we are saddened, wondering if they are all okay.

I’m sure we all know people who were either running or watching this race in Boston and my thoughts and prayers go out to all of them.  I am Thankful to all the first responders who were at the scene for they have risked their lives too.  May God’s peace and healing hand be on this city!

Good Morning! Happy Monday.

So My favorite fruit is blueberries!!  I eat them year round.  They are just so great by themselves or in baking!  I use them in everything from protein pancakes, to healthy blueberry muffin bakes, in cereal etc.  And today I made a low carb blueberry muffin with them.  That’s another one of my weaknesses, besides chocolate- BLUEBERRY MUFFINS!  Especially the ones with the crumble topping, omg!  We all know those aren’t kind to the waistline though 🙂

With spring and summer upon us I know a lot of people are trying to watch what they eat!  Here is a low carb, low sugar blueberry muffin Recipe that I hope you all will try!  I used a little bit of honey and a few liquid stevia drops for sweetness.  You don’t need to0 much because the blueberries are already sweet 🙂
