Fabulous and Fat-Free!

For the past couple mornings, I've started my days with these lovely fat-free Orange Blueberry Spelt Muffins from The Best of Happy Herbivore, Vol. 1 E-Cookbook:

These moist flavorful muffins are the first recipe I've made since ordering Lindsey's awesome e-cookbook (follow the link to score your own copy). And what a great first choice! The muffins are loaded with heart-healthy blueberries and nutrient-rich spelt four, with just a slight hint of citrus.

If you don't already own HH's Volume 1 cookbook, it's a must-buy. And a steal at only $5. The digital cookbook is filled with about 100 recipes, all compiled from Lindsey's blog through 2007 and 2008. Since she's all about the low-fat vegan recipes, every scrumptious dish in the book is healthy and light ... and some recipes are even fat-free!

I'm not gonna lie. I love me some fried food, but every once in awhile, a girl needs a break from the deep fryer. And this book offers plenty of healthy ideas for getting off the grease.

Those look great! Orange and blueberry is a great flavor combination, and I love spelt flour!

Low-fat and vegan are two of my favourite food qualifiers! I can't wait for some muffin love (post-lent). Yum!

i'm looking forward to picking blueberries this summer up in michigan, hoarding them in freezer, and using them to make muffins.
