Berry Burst Muffins


I ate these little guys up while on retreat last weekend!  Some others even helped themselves 😉

I was away at a vegetarian retreat last weekend and was so nervous that I wouldn’t get enough protein that I got in the kitchen and came up with these.   I laugh because I also brought homemade jerky with me.  I wanted to be respectful to the space, so I kept the jerky in the car.  During our afternoon free time, I would sneak out to the car, grab a handful of jerky and go for a walk.  On one of my meat walks I got to thinking, what are other’s thinking I’m doing?  Do they think I smoke?  Funny how I placed eating meat into the same category/stigma of smoking.  I must say I did miss my bacon 🙂
