Great Way to Start the Day!

Donuts, muffins, sugary cereals, oh my! If you pay any attention to modern society you’ll quickly notice that breakfast has turned into another excuse for individuals to have dessert to start the day. Would you believe that one Cinnamon Crunch bagel from Panera with no cream cheese is 430 calories and 32 grams of sugar? That’s the same amount of sugar as one of their oatmeal cookies! Starting off the day with a poor nutritional choice such as one of these bad boys can lead to a cascade of more poor nutrition decisions. Instead focus on higher protein, higher fiber choices such as oatmeal, eggs, fruit, etc. But what if you’re craving a breakfast classic such as waffles? You’re in luck! Below you will find my favorite high protein waffle recipe. Its super easy to make and super delicious!
