The Well Traveled Muffin


While enjoying my breakfast morning mug ‘o muffin, I started wondering just where my food comes from. Not from the vantage of carbon footprints or any of that mess, but just the wonder of logistics and how we enjoy things on a global scale.

I created the map above with the major components of my muffin that I eat just about every day, with the exception of the cocoa. Today was the first time I added cocoa powder for breakfast, but I don’t expect it to be the last.

There are a few other ingredients I didn’t map, but for those of you who are curious, here are my ingredients, and their corresponding pins:

  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil (C)
  • 2 Tbsp Orange juice (D)
  • 2 Large eggs (local to A)
  • pinch Baking Soda (F)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (G)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour (C)
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa (B)

Whoa! That’s one well traveled muffin by the time it gets to my shelves, and probably the last time I’ll complain about having to drag myself to the grocery store for any of the ingredients.

Btw? It was yummy!


I believe you make your own reality whether good or bad. Thus, my favorite saying is, "Say what you mean and mean what you say."

Well, Sharon, if you wanna know what I think....
