Whole Grain Waffles with Almond Butter and Berries


Here’s a quick (and hearty) healthy breakfast for you!
I am always rushing in the morning before work…mostly because I prefer to sleep at little longer than get up early.  So my morning routine does not include breakfast or my beloved coffee before I get to work.  However, I’m not about to skip the most important meal of the day, so it takes some pre-planning on my part.  My go-to breakfast is an egg white veggie omelet with a cheese wedge on either a low calorie English muffin or one of those handy 100 calorie flat rounds (only 186 total calories!).  But after years and years of eating this almost every day (<---only a slight exaggeration...), a gal needs to mix it up a bit!
I wanted to keep whole grains in the forefront, but also wanted to have some protein so I decided to try this little guy as a backup to my old faithful.  It has a few more calories but it’s very hearty and heart healthy.  In addition, I can throw everything into individual little baggies and throw it together when I get to work...AND this keeps me satisfied until lunch!
