Waffles get a bad rap! Maybe that’s because they look so delicious and we’re trained to believe if we’re trying to lose weight we can’t have delicious. This is wrong, and this waffle may be one of your friends if you give it a shot!

The message here is not to make a “whole wheat-gluten free-antibiotic free-high fiber-free range” waffle. Have a real waffle but make another nutrient rich food the star of the show like Greek yogurt, eggs, nuts and fruit.. the waffle becomes the best supporting actor.

Here’s a few ways to make your waffle fantastic (with nutrition information of course)
