Bakeries are everywhere around us. Many of these places provide muffins with a lot of added ingredients that are not healthy for you and your family. In fact the average shop muffin has over 455 calories in it and weights up to 30g. As a matter of fact bigger does not mean better. Below are reasons you should avoid eating store bought muffins.
Quite often the muffins you get in the market, convenience store or even gas stations have added ingredients to preserve the muffins when they are on the shelf. Homemade muffins last only for a few days before they start to become bad. When they are bought from the store the owner does not know how long it will take to sell the products and have to extend their shelf life. These added ingredients over time may be harmful to you and your family.
Another reason is the muffins purchased in the stores are filled with processed sugars and processed fats which are as well bad for your health. That is also the reason these muffins have so many calories. When you bake the same muffins at home you can reduce the amount of processed sugars and fats by substituting some of those ingredients. This will lower the calories and fat intake that you will be consuming. The health is of the highest importance. Small changes to your diet will allow you to be healthy and intake fewer calories a day. Baking your own muffins can help you do this simply and easily while knowing what they are consuming on a daily basis.
