Mind Your Muffins

There’s nothing quite like a warm, "fresh out of the oven" muffin. But if you’re regularly picking up baked goods for breakfast, it’s time to rethink your strategy. While eating a fresh blueberry muffin might seem like a healthy way to start your day (it’s fruit, right?), there are loads of calories and fat lurking within.
Depending on the brand, a single muffin can set you back 600-700 calories and more than 10 grams of fat. And don’t even think about biting into one of those oversized Costco/Sam’s Club brand monstrosities; each of these gargantuan pastries can easily pack up to 900 calories and more than 40 grams of fat. Even low-fat muffins can deliver a substantial caloric wallop with an average of 400 calories each. Why? Because they're made with more sugar than regular muffins to improve the taste. And don’t be fooled by muffins that claim to be low-fat or reduced-fat or by those that contain healthy-sounding ingredients, such as apples, bananas, blueberries, carrots, or wheat germ. One healthy ingredient doesn’t make the whole food diet-friendly. For a guilt-free, delicious breakfast muffin that won’t break the calorie bank, whip up a batch of our low-calorie oatmeal muffins and eat one straight out of the oven. If you do want to treat yourself to a once-in-awhile store-bought muffin, then go ahead and enjoy yourself. But don't go grabbing one of these fat-fests every morning, or you’ll just make it that much more difficult for yourself to lose weight. So, if the muffin man comes knocking, tell him you’re minding your muffins.
