I’m so glad it’s Saturday and beautiful outside!! After reading Kristen’s Waffle Heaven post I was inspired to get my waffle maker out and take the time to make waffles.
Waffle batter and pancake batter are very similar but I always feel like waffle making is so much more work than pancakes. I’m sure it’s because I have to pull out the big waffle making apparatus and then put it back downstairs afterward, but still, it’s really not that much more difficult.
I decided to make the chocolate waffles because, well why not go all out and make something special. I left out the smashed banana, didn’t use AP flour, but whole wheat flour and coconut flour instead and reduced the sugar and oil.
I don’t have a super cute heart shaped waffle maker like Kristen, but they still look pretty good huh? Tasted good! I sliced up some strawberries, made a PB cream sauce (PB, soymilk and cinnamon) and cooked up some scrambled eggs on the side for some protein. It was a wonderful and filling breakfast, and my waffle envy was fulfilled 🙂
Coffee No More
This past week Jacob and I have been having minor stomach discomfort and think it may come from the coffee, or the amount of coffee we drink. Last night we decided to stay away from coffee for a week and see if it helps. I really don’t think this will be a problem for me. I drink tea all the time, and have gone through phases of just not wanting coffee and just drinking tea instead.
That being said, I’m still going to drink my caffeine… like with this morning’s cup of double spiced chai tea with a splash of soymilk and a sprinkle of sun crystals.
One thing that totally makes my tea drinking easier and quicker in the morning is my awesome electric tea kettle!
It’s afternoon now and I still haven’t had coffee… Jacob’s another story… he had a mocha on our walk. Guess it’s just me this week with no coffee!
Question: Are you a coffee or drinker?
Normally I’d just drink 1 BIG cup of coffee in the morning then tea throughout the day.
