Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is a story about 1 girl and her journey to make herself and her family healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. Throughout my journey I have successes and "learning opportunities". I share them all here - the good, the bad and the ugly. As I grow and learn, I will share it here.

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins


Fall is upon us!  With fall comes pumpkin foods.  Today I tried a new pumpkin muffin recipe that has chocolate chips in them.  I used Enjoy Life semi sweet chocolate chips.  They are fabulous and the ingredients are not scarry!  Not only that - I don't have to make them!  I got them at Kroger, but they are a little cheaper on Amazon - so I will buy them there from now on.  I will also watch for sales online and buy in bulk!
