Muffins are pretenders. They act like they are for breakfast and that they are perfectly acceptable to eat them first thing in the morning, when you would probably think carefully before eating a piece of cake for breakfast. Muffins are simply cake. Repeat this to yourself at least five times.
When you think about muffins it is a little easier to understand. Muffins are not as well disguised as a healthy breakfast options as some other meals. They are like the drag queen with the five o’clock shadow. Muffins are at least 665 calories. That is not a small number. Now you will shudder to think what will happen to you if you eat that muffin every day.
The other reason to avoid muffins altogether is that even the ones that try to be lower in calories are not that low calorie. Some companies make their best effort to make muffins seem healthy with a zucchini walnut muffin made with real zucchini. Do they commend themselves for resisting the lobbying power of the fake zucchini? Do not think so, but the muffin is still 485 calories. For 485 calories, you would rather eat a ton of dark chocolate straight up. That is a more delicious choice. And you have to say that every so- called low fat muffin that you have tried just does not taste that great. That is why you save cake for dessert and eat it in all its high calorie glory.
