more clean eating fun!

I don’t know if  you know this but apples and zucchinis are friends. it may not sound like it but they definitely are a match made in produce heaven.  together they are not too sweet but just sweet enough to be a little breakfast pick me up. plus you are getting crazy amounts of nutrients by sneaking veggies into your muffins. (and if you see adam don’t tell him he took four apple zucchini muffins to work. he doesn’t like eating green things)
