Thanksgiving is the official kick-off of the holiday season for most families and ours is no exception. But between the colder weather, the extra treats and the decrease in time spent outdoors, it’s also the season when colds and flues start to attack with a vengeance. And that’s certainly been the case this year! My oldest son coming home from school with a cough has gradually led to every single member of our family spending at least a day in bed with a fever and a hacking cough.
Now that we’re all pretty much recovered, I know I need to do more to ensure we’re getting proper nutrition during the holiday months. Since a good breakfast is always a great place to start, I decided to create a hearty, nutrient-rich muffin recipe that would help my boys start the day off with plenty of energy and plenty of nutrients too!
