Beautiful Blueberry Bread

Beautiful Blueberry Bread

Traveling can be tricky when you are trying to make a good lifestyle change. The best way to stay on track is to bring some of your go to items home. If someone has dessert- make sure you have your own sweet to snack on. It is all about planning ahead and keeping your ultimate goal in mind. *Your goal to be a healthier you!* My last tip- Always pack your workout gear and find new places to take a hike, run or bike if possible.
Tomorrow we head to Maryland to go to visit our family! I made Paleo Crunch, Apple Bran Muffins, packed fruits and veggies and ingredients to make Zucchini Lasagna (per my families request). I also worked on a bread. Normally I make a Blueberry buckle that is to die for (sooo not healthy). This was my attempt to make a healthier alternative to that treat. Hopefully my family will approve.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
