Rising and shining isn’t how we all start the day. When the snooze button’s been hit more times than you care to admit and the coffee couldn’t brew any faster, a basic breakfast isn’t going to cut it. Bypass the sugary cereal flakes, syrup-slathered pancakes and pop-up toaster pastries. All that sweetness might get your engine up and running, but you’ll have to pull over to refuel just a few miles up the road. Instead, make these hot, hearty and wholesome muffins to kick start your morning. They’re protein rich and Paleo-diet friendly.  You’ll be speeding ahead until lunchtime—maybe even with some of that brightness you envy in the early birds.
