Lavender Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

I wish I had something fun or cool to say, but instead I’m lying on the bathroom floor, clutching the toilet, in hopes of not puking salmon up again. The stomach flu is quite lovely. I have body aches, chills and fever, and I have no absolutely no energy. Even just writing those last few sentences took me 20 minutes. Killing it.

I don’t understand where this sickness came from. I coached for 6 hours at my gym then went home to eat lunch and it kicked in right after that. But my husband ate the same food so it wasn’t food poisoning. Boo. I just hate it.

I’ve been working on writing all this since 10am…it’s now 5pm. I’ll just stop and give you the recipe instead. Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Julie, these muffins look amazing! I’ve been so into the lavender in baked goods thing lately!! Can’t wait to try these.
    I’m so sorry you aren’t feeling well, and I pray it passes quickly. Kudos to you for writing a blog post while you’re under the weather! Rest up.
    Your blog is beautiful and I’m so inspire by it! I’ve been following for a while and recently starting my own food blog,, and hope my pictures will be that great one day 😉

  2. Sorry you’re feeling like yuck!!! There’s actually a 24 hour stomach bug going around my town and the school I work in – so many people said the same thing – came out of no where! Feel better!!

  3. Stomachs are pieces of shit some times….I’ve been noticing that things I normally eat are starting to upset my stomach, example being roasted sausages and veggies. What the hell right?! Hope you feel better!

  4. Julie!!! Listened to your podcast and i am so happy that you are a human and you yawn:)) lol Thank you, i am truly enjoying your REAL chats with us!! Thank you for sharing, and even the double vjj part lol! Stomach flu sucks, i feel for you….snuggle with jackson, he loves you no matter what….He is the BEST:)

    Feel better and cant wait to make these muffins!! Thanks for posting, even from the bathroom floor…you are a trooper!!


  5. Even though your hubby didn’t get sick doesn’t mean it’s not food poisoning. Either his food didn’t have the same bacterial load and/or his digestive system was able to handle it for whatever reason.

    Hope you feel better soon! Take it easy (like you have a choice!) and keep sipping tiny bits of water. When I had food poisoning 2 years ago I lost about 8 lbs in 3 days. It’s horrible!

    My partner and I love your cookbook and blog!

  6. SweetStuffAddict!

    Hey Juli, Thanks for another awesome recipe. 🙂 Top photography; quite creative!! I just made your Strawberry Poppyseed Bread several days ago, and almost ate the whole lot in one go!!

  7. Had a stomach bug last week. Luckily only lasted about 36 hours but it was a rough day and a half. Hopefully yours is short too!

  8. I saw your snaps and didn’t even expect you to put this post up. Your dedication to us is astounding! Hope you start feeling better soon!

  9. Im sorry you feel shitty! Thank you for still posting, but girl you need to rest. We’ll survive a day or two without you…I hope!

  10. So sorry Juli. Feel better soon. Bone broth maybe?
    I’ve been listening to your podcasts and I have a “random reader question” that I hope you’ll address some day.
    You’ve talked about your weight loss. I get the main idea: eat big, nutrient dense meals, minimize snacking, drink a TON of water, don’t eat a lot of nuts, etc. You listen to your body. This all sounds delightful. I’d love to be able to do this. I’m trying.
    What I’m wondering is what does it feel like to listen to your body while you are losing weight. Surely, you must feel hungry? How do you know if your are eating too little or too much for weight loss by listening to your body? Did you ever get light-headed? Did you have any other tips for weight loss? Especially for when you were getting closer to your goal weight?
    Love your recipes (had spaghetti squash sweet potato casserole thing for breakfast today and acorn squash with mini meatballs planned for dinner), and love your blog, and love your podcast…Just love you. Thanks for all of the motivation. You have an amazing body that is really inspirational.
    Oh…and also any tips for how to walk in a handstand? I’ve been practicing and can hold a handstand for only a few seconds and maybe can take a couple steps, but I”ve seen you go across the room! Amazing!
    Wait…I don’t think you’re supposed to sign your comments. I don’t know. I’ve never commented before on a blog. (Never listened to podcasts before yours either!)

    1. hey becky! weight loss is a tough one and figuring out what your body wants and needs is even harder. i definitely don’t feel hungry. i feel hunger when i’m ready to eat again, but i’m eating what my body needs so it’s not feeling hunger! when i eat, i try to eat to the point i’m just satisfied, not overly full. whenever i’m eating to the point that i’m too full, i notice my body gaining weight and changing. it’s tough to get to that point to really know how to listen to your body, but it’s definitely possible! i don’t ever get lightheaded, though. with weight loss, i recommend people continue to workout regularly and eat just like you said and drink lots of water. weight loss doesn’t always come in a couple weeks or months, but over time. and as for handstand walking, what helped me the most was letting my feet hang so they pull you forward and your hands have to chase your feet. practice makes perfect!!

  11. Oh…and have you tried Crio Bru. It is roasted and ground cocoa beans you brew like you would coffee. It is delicious and my favorite hot beverage (I don’t drink coffee). Just thought you’d enjoy it on days when you’re cutting back on coffee. Try it!

  12. I so hope you are feeling better!!! That is the worst!!!

    Question for you – kind of random … I am desperately searching for a good cranberry bread recipe (or could be muffins). I made one over the weekend and it is less than remarkable … do you have one? Or one of yours that I could sub cranberries in? Fresh cranberries. I looked on your blog and didn’t see any.

    I hate tossing the one I made since it had 6 eggs and that seems like a waste but it was made w/coconut flour since I was trying to go cheapy … (almond flour is so pricey). But I hate wasting calories on something that tastes like dirt!

    Thank you!!!

  13. Juli,

    Can you sub maple syrup for maple sugar?
    Do coconut sugar and maple syrup get digested the same way anyways?

    Thank you!!

    1. i haven’t tried that myself, but someone recently mentioned that they accidentally use maple syrup instead of maple sugar in a recipe and it still came out perfect so hopefully that will work for these too!!

  14. This recipe replaces your apple muffins on my favorite list. It’s so easy, has no fat (yet not dense like a hockey puck) and tastes absolutely phenomenal. Please don’t stop cranking out these fantastic recipes!
