WIAW {4/1} -Berry Bran Muffins

Hello everyone and Happy April Fools day! Today I am sharing a recipe I recently fell in love with from Smitten Kitchen, along with my meals from yesterday (What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday?)

I had an early workout filled with abs, legs, and a 3 mile run. I came home and made a large Vega nutrition shake with half natural, half chocolate protein. I added almond milk, ice, and frozen bananas.

Vega claims there are 6 servings of greens and 20 grams of protein in each scoop. Does anyone have thoughts on this? To be honest, I am not convinced that drinking one of their shakes is the same as eating 6 cups of greens, but I really do enjoy them and like to add any extra vitamins to my diet!

Served with toast topped with peanut butter and honey. Note: buying the just-peanuts peanut butter is only helpful if you don't drizzle it with honey ;)

After breakfast, I quickly made a batch of these Blue Sky Bran Muffins from Smitten Kitchen. The recipe says use any fruit you would like, but I added frozen cranberries and frozen blueberries.

These are so so good.

LOVE Smitten Kitchen for all things cooking and baking. Her recipes have never failed me.

For lunch, I had a muffin, apple and peanut butter, and a bag of carrot and celery slices.  All unpictured, because I was in class.

I spent my afternoon studying at home. I finished with more lunch at about 2pm (can I still call this lunch?). Tomato soup and sliced turkey from Whole Foods.

Aaron and I cooked dinner together: we made chicken pot pie with the leftover roasted chicken. We were both starving, so I skipped the side of steamed broccoli I had planned on eating... lets hope that Vega really has all those greens! ;)

Oh, and after dinner, I indulged in some HGTV with my new favorite show, "Fixer Upper." Has anyone watched this? I am obsessed.

What is your favorite HGTV show?
Do you do any sort of supplement drink or shake?


Thanks for hosting, Jenn!


  1. Looks like some yummy eats, lady! Those muffins look amazing.

  2. Oh my goodness I just watched fixer upper for the first time a couple weeks ago and me and my sister were dying laughing at the husband. I think he ate a cockroach in the episode for a bet. Such a cute show. And your foods look delicious especially that pot pie!

  3. Great looking eats! Those muffins look delish! I watch all the HGTV shows...I like the Property Brothers/Buying and Selling. I enjoy the brothers!
