I don't know what it is about the start of a new year, but I always head into January with excitement and energy. This month, I've had amazing energy and I know it's because I'm making healthier choices with my meals and snacks, my 30-day green smoothie challenge and regular exercise.
With a little bit of planning, buying the right items from the grocery store and preparation, I think eating healthier is totally doable. We just have to make smarter choices at the store, if eating healthier is what we want to do. It's like do you buy that bag of roasted almonds instead of the bag of potato chips?
The mornings are always crazy for us when my oldest has to leave and catch the bus for school. She has to be at the bus stop super early, like 6:55am. I wish I was joking. So, needless to say, I have to be prepared and ready to go with breakfast. And we need something quick.
We recently tried Van's Waffles. They have Gluten Free Blueberry and 8 Whole Grain Multigrain and lots more but these are the ones we have tried and love. Can you guess who likes the 8 Whole Grain Multigrain waffles?!!
Van’s waffles are a wholesome, delicious and quick breakfast option. Van’s waffles are Non-GMO project verified, and contain no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, or hydrogenated oils.
8 Whole Grain Multigrain are a tasty combination of hearty whole wheat, oats, barley, brown rice, rye, quinoa, amaranth and millet, lightly sweetened with a touch of honey. Doesn't that sound delicious?! I love these waffles! Inspired by my fancy avocado toast, I had to make this. Since I'm making smoothies everyday, my fridge is packed with kale and I can't seem to get enough avocado these days. And the egg? Well, that's a no brainer. They are packed with protein!
I hope you give this recipe a try. I have enjoyed these Avocado Waffles for breakfast and lunch!
Van’s waffles are available at grocery stores, mass merchandisers and natural food retailers nationwide.
