Now my husband has weathered these last 7 days with me. I have heard minimal grumblings, but he has confessed to visit the "Golden Arches" a time or two. Even my girlfriend caught him in the act. No worries, the diet is very restrictive and we are all human. In the words of Mark Briggs, "Its really about finding healthy alternatives, and working them into your daily routine. Finding things that you can live with for a lifetime, and no going to far ends of extreme that you can do on a temporary basis." I'm not sure I would recommend my husband's retreat, but I certainly understand it is about finding healthy alternatives for the foods we enjoy. I'm learning everyday just how many alternatives are available. That said, here is my solution for the waffle lover. This recipe does include eggs. I'm sure you could use an egg substitute and make it Challenge Fine, but for me, this makes about 14 small waffles - so 1/7 of an egg for two waffles I don't think was a major detour! Enjoy =)
Bradley's Gluten Free Waffles
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 3/4 cups Sugar Free Almond milk
- 1/4 cup Canola oil
- 1/2 cup Honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free (Wheat Free*Dairy Free) All Purpose Baking Flour
- 1/2 quick oats
- 1/4 cup ground flax seed mill
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
This is our solution for a healthy breakfast. We served the waffles with Agave nectar and fresh strawberries and cantalope. There are alternatives to be found, you just have to be willing to experiment. You just might surprise yourself how much you like what you find. This will definitely be a new favorite at our home.
7 days down 7 days to GO!!! Life is Good!
