Health Tip #5 in Breakfast Series

Waffles on the Go!
There are some days where I just need to pop something in the toaster and come back and have it ready to eat. Now I'm not talking a bagel here because bagels are actually one of the worst foods that you can eat at ANY time of day. Did you know that a bagel is the equivalent of about 6 slices of toast?!  Talk about loading yourself up with sugar when you start your day and then you wonder why you crash two hours later!

So if I'm in need of a carby start to my day then sometimes I go with a whole grain waffle.  It fills that need for something bread-like but with way less calories than a bagel.  I go for a whole wheat or a whole grain waffle.  There are a few different brands.  Of course there's the classic Eggo brand which is ok but if you can get your hands on them, Van's is an even healthier brand that you can purchase at most Whole Foods or Organic stores.
Then instead of putting butter and syrup on them, here's how to add even more health into your bite.  Spread 1 TSP of almond butter on top and then top with a no sugar added jam spread.  I love blueberry or raspberry spread as they're not as sweet as grape or strawberry.  But again, read your labels.  Look for no sugar added signs on the label because you don't want to start your day with high fructose corn syrup.
This is a perfect combo of carbs and protein and its super filling and most importantly, warm and satisfying.
Give it a try and enjoy!

  8. Where do people get the audacity to write something SOO mean and hateful...totally disgusting! Guess it's easy when hiding behind a computer?!
    Bottom-line: If you got nothing nice or helpful to write do everyone a favor and don't bother writing at all...genius concept I know:)

    Side Note: Thara keep on blogging your positivity and willingness to help others is what really matters!! Look forward to your next one!!
