Staying the course with GNC PUREDGE™- OMM Recipe Included!

Let’s face it. The holidays are tough for those of us who are determined to live a healthier, cleaner lifestyle. I mean, everyday is tough. But it is the time of year where you could multiply the average daily temptation by about 117…point 982.

It all starts at the office with the holiday gatherings and parties, not to mention the break room full of sweets and treats. Or the candy dish on the receptionist’s desk. Then it surrounds you at the coffee shops, grocery stores, drug stores…even some doctor’s offices have a candy dish or two right in plain sight! Finally, you are inundated by the delicious gifts in your mailbox.

It is the time of year to show some serious willpower. But imagine being able to have your cake and eat it, too! (Pun intended. In fact, look for the One Minute Mug Muffin recipe below using GNC PUREDGE™ Complete Protein – Natural Chocolate.)

Your local GNC store has the answer on how to survive the holidays and stay on course with your fitness routine while keeping it preservative free (not to mention, no GMO1-added ingredients, no wheat, yeast, fish or egg, no sugar alcohols, no artificial additives, colors or sweeteners, and no gluten-added ingredients).

Here is the mug muffin recipe I promised you!

Enjoy!
Double Chocolate Chip 1-Minute Mug Muffin
Print Recipe
I love mug muffins. They are so fast and easy when you just have to have something yummy in your tummy, without breaking the carb bank. You can make these a variety of ways, changing up ingredients to what suits you. I like to go low carb/high fat but feel free to experiment with your favorites. You can easily replace the almond butter with a heaping tablespoon of mashed banana for a moister cake. You will have to cook it an additional 30 seconds.

And if you need some help with your “get up and go” this holiday season, then I highly recommend GNC PUREDGE Daily Energy powdered formula. This will give you the boost you need to get you through that early morning workout, or even a mid afternoon lull. Just add it into your water bottle and shake it up for a quick pick me up! (I like the Natural Cherry Limeade flavor).
