This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Aloha, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #myAloha and #AlohaMoment http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

December is the hardest month to focus on fitness and health for me. There are so many temptations with holiday parties, food, and the common attitude to just wait until the new year to reset. To counteract that, every December I try to really focus in on my goals for the new year and start to form at least one healthy habit early. That way I have already accomplished something when the new year rolls around and am not starting off trying to change everything at once.

This year my December goal is two fold. First I am focusing on starting my day with at least 20 minutes of activity before I start working. This could be a quick walk, workout video, or full fledged workout – but I have to move for at least 20 minutes every morning. For me this not only increases my overall activity level but really helps my mood and focus throughout the day. The second part of my December goal is focusing in on eating healthy breakfasts that contain a good amount of protein. I stay full longer and am less likely to "go off the rails" when I start my day this way. One way I have been achieving this, especially on busy mornings, is by incorporating a natural protein powder into my breakfast. I can use it in smoothies, yogurt, pancakes, and these delicious microwave muffins I am sharing today.

In terms of protein powders, I like to look for an all natural plant based protein powder like Aloha Premium Protein. I like Aloha Protein for a few reasons. First, it's made with whole foods naturally rich in nutrients and has 18 grams of plant-based protein. It's also made with superfood ingredients and doesn’t use any artificial sweeteners. Equally important, I really like how their protein powder tastes. It isn't gritty and doesn't have that off putting, “protein” tastes that a lot of other powders have.
