Morning Glory Muffins (Grain-Free)

Morning Glory Muffins

Ohhh, baby! These muffins are full of delicious flavour and packed with nutrients. Basically the most perfect breakfast muffin around.

With all that flavour and nutrition – comes a slightly longer list of ingredients than your standard muffin. But it’s well worth it. They’re seriously good and will keep you feeling full longer than that coffee shop baked good.

Making Breakfast Easy & Nutrient-Dense

These Morning Glory Muffins are great to make ahead of time for a grab ’n’ go breakfast when you’re short on time – or when you want a yummy companion to your Matcha Latte.

They’re a top option in my books because the muffins are packed with protein, fibre and healthy fats that help keep the blood sugar stable (which is important for clear skin!). And being a mom, I love that they have veggies hiding out in them, too.

Carrots For the Win

Over in The Clear Skin Solution, we make sure our acne clients are including lots of antioxidant-rich foods in their day. Carrots are a perfect example of this.

They get their signature orange colour from antioxidants called carotenoids. They’re powerhouse antioxidants and provide a number of benefits, including:

  1. Speeding up wound healing on the skin (including breakouts).
  2. Supporting the immune system (which is involved in fighting acne bacteria).
  3. Fighting free radicals that promote disease and aging (and trigger acne).
  4. Helping reduce inflammation (a big acne accelerator).

Warming Spices

Going into the cooler fall and winter months, including warming spices is a great tactic for eating with the seasons. In Ayurveda, spices like cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg are used to remove excess moistness in the body, boost blood circulation, and improve digestion.

Hint: acne is an external symptom of an internal issue. That's why years of prescriptions, medicated creams and fancy facials haven't gotten you the results you're after. Getting rid of acne is an inside job -- and we're here to help you do it.

Testimonials

"After a few months, my skin improved significantly."

Now my skin is completely blemish-free, I don’t even have to wear makeup. I don’t even break out around my cycle. I really owe it to Katie for her knowledge, and guidance during this clear skin journey. Thank you, Katie!!

"My scars and blemishes from the past continue to fade."

I'm grateful for the knowledge, strength and support to get current breakouts under control while my body continues to detox and heal.

Laurenne B.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!

-Nicole B.
