Being a nutritionist and a trainer, I work with many people from all different walks of life on aligning their nutrition with their energy output, especially beginning a new fitness plan. One of the most common issues I find is that most people are in a surplus of calories but are not consuming enough protein and fiber to accomplish their goals. Instead they are consuming too much sugar and fats. One of the best ways to fix this discrepancy without having to eat boring, plain foods every day and crave all of the foods you enjoy is to alter the current recipes.
This protein waffle is one of my favorite breakfasts and leaves me feeling satiated, energized and strong in the morning. It even satisfies my sweet cravings but only has 9 grams of sugar in the entire waffle. Typically waffles, and most sweet foods for that matter, contain high sugar and fat with low protein and fiber. This makes for a delicious taste but doesn’t give your body the correct nutrients leaving you craving more, over eating and storing the excess energy. This waffle does the exact opposite, giving you high fiber and protein with low fat and sugar… Protein helps feed the lean mass and fiber helps with digestion as well as satiety (feeling of fullness).
