also known as: husband-waffles.
I think I was about 24 years old before I realized that not all waffles started with the blue boxed mix from Costco. Paired with Aunt Jemima’s.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, like every 7 year old, I knew Eggo’s well. I think daily, for most of my childhood. Waffles were my jam— my all time favorite food, and I could go to any lengths particularly for Star Wars Waffles.
What I really mean is, knowing that the real ones could be made, without a box.
There were so many things like this when I started to fully transition into eating all real food: mind blowing moments when I realized I could have almost anything I wanted.
That literally—there was a way to make almost any treat, with real food. Usually, by going back to the old-school way of how they were made in a time that boxes of mix and shortcuts weren’t a thing.
Also mind blowing? That living this way means no deprivation. No counting. Just simple ingredients, combined in the right way. That there’s always a upgrade that is kinder to your body, and therefore your mind too.
So, as we wrap up this month’s theme of having more food freedom in your life (the ability to eat beautiful, delicious food, without guilt)- what better recipe to end on?
And a reminder that the Simply Real Life Program (6 short weeks to a better relationship to food, and a more joyful & vibrant life), enrollment closes tomorrow, Monday 4/3 at 9pm PT.
Life-Changing Gluten Free Waffles
Makes 4-6 waffles, depending on the size of your iron
1 3/4 cup gluten-free flour blend (trader joe’s is my favorite blend, but the namaste brand or this one work great too)
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cage-free organic eggs, whisked separately if possible
1 3/4 cup almond milk (or whole milk/half and half)
1 teaspoon vanilla
tiny pinch of sea salt
Mix all ingredients together well. Preheat waffle iron and spray with coconut oil until hot. Spread batter evenly on the iron, close and cook until they start to crisp. When the bottom part is crisped, flip waffles and crisp the top for 2-3 minutes. Serve hot.
Batter can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge.
Top with homemade whipped cream (or the coconut whipped cream from the Simply Real Health Cookbook), berries, bananas, coconut flakes, maple syrup or husband style– chocolate chips.
So, what’s this Simply Real Life Program?
This program is everything: literally every single step that I take private clients through from beginning to end, but at half the price. It’s the full scope of how to create and live a full blown #antidiet life, and healthy lifestyle that actually lasts for the long haul.
We re-train your brain about food: from the basics of meal prep, shopping, morning and evening rituals, cooking more efficiently, to a healthy life on the go (traveling, restaurants, navigating any situation in the real world with ease).
Then, we get into the deeper mental and emotional pieces that often get ignored with food– but these are the things that actually change how you think and act!
We cover the brain and it’s patterns (and how to hack them), energy, how to break habits and create better ones that serve you, how to leave guilt and shame behind, how to stop emotional eating or using food for comfort or distraction, and how to live and create a healthy lifestyle that works perfectly in the context of your own life!
All with unlimited support from me, group coaching calls, weekly assignments and accountability, brand new recipes each week, podcast lectures and hands on help! All with a beautiful community of women cheering you on, and lifetime access to repeat the program anytime it runs, for free.
All the details are here. Registration closes this Monday 4/3!
