When I know I’m wasting time, my soul gets itchy. My belly knots up. My legs become agitated. My mind jumps between all the things I could and should be doing.

When I’m multitasking well, I’m satisfied. I’m carefree. My mind stays on the tasks at hand.

There’s nothing wrong with sitting down to eat a meal. There’s nothing wrong with a casual bike ride.

As someone who hates being late, I’m usually rushing to be early. My options sometimes become sitting to eat and driving to my destination or skipping the meal and hopping on my bike.

A few years back, I started thinking up “bike food,” food that I could safely and easily eat while riding that wouldn’t slow me down but would fill me up.

That’s how I invented “hot dog muffins.” Really though, I make them now for friends just to be funny.


  • -Your favourite muffin or biscuit dough
  • -Veggie dogs
  • -Whatever you like in your hot dog! Onions, cheese, tomatoes, garlic, herbs


  • Mix your dough as you normally would, then mix in your chopped up hot dog ingredients.
  • Bake the dough as you would. If it’s muffins, in a muffin in. If it’s biscuits, just on a pan.
  • Eat ‘em up!
