Introducing Amy’s Magical Muffins.
They’re magic because they’re healthy and your kids will scarf them down and get their morning protein. Not only will they be able to jump off a giant muffin, they will be able to focus more easily on their schoolwork, pay attention without needing to jump around as much, and even behave better. And you can throw one in your purse on the way to work…
These Super Muffins are the creation of Austin’s most popular naturopathic doctor, Amy Tyler, who works at Peoples Pharmacy in South Austin. They are kid tested and approved even for discerning palates. Her kids love them!
