Benefits of Whole Wheat Muffins

Benefits of Whole Wheat Muffins

Take steps towards a health and balanced lifestyle, one recipe at a time. These whole wheat muffins contain many natural ingredients including whole wheat flour, applesauce, oats, and a variety of freeze dried or fresh fruits. The ingredients provide rich nutrients that allow for an ample intake of daily nutritional value. Fruits are a source of a natural sugar called fructose, and many valuable nutrients. Nutrients and fructose from fruit reduce the risk of cancers, obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Table sugar, also known as sucrose, does not have the same nutritional value then that of fructose. It is significant to note that the sugar within high fructose corn syrup, is not healthy. Fruits have phytonutrients and fiber to allow for a slower release of sugar absorption in the blood. High fructose corn syrup, found in many popular soda brands, has rapid sugar absorption within the blood, and is linked to weight gain and diabetes. This flour provides healthy nutritive value for all lifestyles. Whole wheat flour is composed of grain that is high in fiber and manganese. Whole wheat in the diet reduces blood pressure and lowers the risk of numerous diseases, including obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, breast cancer, and gallstones. While white flour undergoes extremely refined processing of wheat grains, whole wheat flour is not as heavily processed. As a result, whole wheat flour has an increased amount of healthy fiber and nutrients. Nutrients within whole wheat flour include vitamins B1 (Thiamin), B3 (Niacin), and B5 (Pantothenic Acid), as well as minerals manganese, selenium, and magnesium. Makes: 16 muffins Ingredients: 1/2 c. buttermilk (or homemade vegan alternative) 1 c. unsweetened applesauce 1 large egg (or store...

The wholesome and healthy ingredients within these oatmeal raisin muffins make this recipe the right choice for a family that is on the go. Homemade muffins have an edge over prepackaged muffins for a variety of reasons. Preservatives and refined sugars within processed muffins do not always bode well within the human body. The plastics and cardboard used in order to sufficiently prepackage individual portion sizes of muffins are also extremely wasteful. Inherent manufacturing “flaws” within food packaging lead to excess wastes in garbage landfills. Senseless shopping for a quick morning fix such as prepackaged store-bought muffins can lead a customer towards an unsatisfactory lifestyle choice, down the road of excess waste and waist. Appearance is not always what it seems: An eager child could easily be attracted to the appeal of a box on a grocery store shelf due to the aesthetic appeal of the packaging. Unfortunately, certain eye-catching advertisement effects on or within packaging could make responsible recycling tricky. For effortless recycling tips, check out the latest recycling guide from Earth911 and start separating out food packaging appropriately today.
