Sometimes, we make mistakes

Posted on May 12, 2017. Filed under: Breakfast, Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

I was really excited to try this recipe.  I wanted something with less processed carbs, but man, these waffles were dry! Even adding a peanut butter yogurt topping with strawberries didn’t help. I’m going to post the recipe anyway, but man, beware if you eat them. I had added rhubarb to them as well, but not all of it cooked so I think that was not a good choice. That one was my mistake, using the recipe was only half mine. Def not going for anything “low carb” or “gluten free” or “keto” if I’m making anything bread related.

Here’s what to get from the store:

Milled Flax seed
Chia Seed

Flax Waffels
(From Healthful Pursuit)

2 cups roughly ground golden flaxseed
1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
10 tsp chia seed with 15 tbsp warm water
½ cup water
⅓ cup avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil or melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon fresh herbs (if making savory) or 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  1. Place your waffle maker on the counter and heat on medium, or your desired setting for crisp waffles.
  2. Combine flax seed with baking powder and sea salt in a large bowl. Whisk to combine fully and set aside.
  3. Add chia seeds, water and oil to the jug of your high-powered blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds, until foamy.
  4. Transfer liquid mixture to the bowl with the flaxseed mixture.
  5. Stir with a spatula, just until incorporated. The mixture will be very fluffy. Once incorporated, allow to sit for 3 minutes.
  6. Add in your fresh herbs or stir in the ground cinnamon.
  7. Divide mixture into 4 servings. Scoop each; one at a time, onto the preheated waffle maker and close the top. Cook until it beeps and repeat with remaining batter.

Maybe I did something wrong, but these poor things were pretty much not the best. Maybe you’ll have better luck, which is why I posted it at all.

In the Morning, I’m making Waffles!

Posted on May 13, 2016. Filed under: Main Course, Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

I can finally eat real food again! My tooth is pretty much done swelling and I’m about to take my last penicillin. I have to say my body was NOT happy about being on the soft food/mostly liquid diet last week. I’m probably going to end up back on it after my root canal, but we’ll see.

I took the spicy sweet potato mash that I made to work the other day, completely forgetting that the habanero marinated and it became a LOT more spicy. I didn’t want to throw it away but I also didn’t know what to do with it. Randomly on Tuesday I thought “Why not make a savory waffle?” Savory waffles have been a thing for a while now, and how hard could it be? Not hard at all, actually. Adding the flour to the mashed toned down the spice quite a bit.

This recipe is beyond easy, and you can use whatever left over mashed potatoes you have in your fridge.

Left Over Sweet Potato Mash Waffle

What to get from the store:

Baking Powder

Left Over Mashed Waffle

1/4 cup left over mashed potatoes
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder

  1. Mix all the ingredients until smooth.
  2. Oil your waffle iron and preheat it. Place the dough on the iron, close it and cook until browned on both sides. Serve topped with cheese or butter.

Monday I discovered I now have a pair of pants that is to big on my waist and tight on my legs butt! The one good thing about the liquid diet is that I got rid of some of the fat on my stomach and now it’s truly flat. It’s crazy to me and I still don’t believe it. I love that I’m feeling the way a healthy person should.
