Today is a BIG day!
Yes it’s Oliver’s 3rd birthday!

Yes usually I have a post up for him every year, kinda like when I posted thisfor his 1st birthday and thisfor his 2nd, but this year I was a terrible mother and didn’t have time to plan anything.  I know….the worst.  But I will be taking him to the dog park this weekend so I’ll make up for it then!Anyway, let me just preface that these little muffins don’t look half as appetizing as they taste!  They are DELICIOUS.  Seriously.  I’m only sharing one photo since I didn’t want to scare you away from trying them, I think next time I’ll sprinkle the herbs on top instead of whisking them into the mixture so they won’t clump in certain spots.This is the perfect clean breakfast that you can make ahead of time and grab to go in the morning that will give you energy and lots of nutrition.  They’ll keep in the fridge for up to one week OR you can freeze them, but I like to make them the morning so they’re nice and fresh.  Simply chop and shred your veggies the night before, cover and refrigerate – you’re all set to go the next day!  Hope you enjoy!
