Code Word "Cake"

No matter which way you look at it, supermoms, we have a trickster in our midst.  May I expose it?  Muffins are nothing more than CAKE in disguise!  They've quietly infiltrated coffee houses and pastry baskets, hiding as a non-dessert option, tempting us with their hallmark trait of being a cherished breakfast food.  It's easy to see them for something other than what they are, which is simply a slice of cake.  There are few redeeming qualities to these imposters and lots more to consider before indulging here:  sugar, empty calories, processed ingredients.  No, not even the blueberries count in making this a healthy choice.  For those of you living in denial-land, sorry to burst your bubble!  Stick to fruits, whole wheat toast, eggs, or just your non-fat, sugar-free latte.  Keep dessert where it belongs...an occasional treat to enjoy not part of your meal plan!
