Muffins at Midnight

15 Jun

Midnight is a great time for making muffins.  A few months ago I discovered these vegan zucchini date muffins on They are absolutely delicious. I’ve been craving them for a few weeks and now that I’m running more I want to have plenty of clean post-run snacks around.

Not sure that midnight was an ideal time to bake these but I will be so happy when I have them after today’s boot camp.

Also, since it’s gotten warmer I’ve been obsessing over Arugula. This is the third day in a row that I’ve prepared this salad.


Shrimp & Blackberry Salad

1 cup organic baby arugula
1/3 cup organic blackberries
1/2 organic zucchini, sliced
1 small Persian cucumber, sliced
2 TBS green onion, chopped
1 lemon wedge
6 wild caught jumbo gulf shrimp
1 tsp coconut oil

Saute the shrimp in coconut oil over medium-high heat, toss all ingredients in lemon juice and enjoy. This salad takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.

For all of you muffin lovers I leave you with, Muffins, a clip by one of my favorite comedians.

Which seasonal fruits and veggies are you craving right now? Do you have a favorite muffin flavor or recipe?

      I would totally cook for you if we were roomies, too bad I didn’t have these skills in college!

    I’ve never made anything with dates before-I don’t even know where to find them in the store. All I know is I’m singing “Joanna makes muuuuuufins at night” to the tune of “I wear my sunglasses at night”

      HAHAHAHA! I think you would like dates, you can get them at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and any Middle Eastern market, maybe even grocery stores. Next time i see you I’ll bring you some.
