Healthy Veggie Frittata

IMG_4514.jpg

Ever find frittatas are full of fatty components that you just LOVE? But when you’re trying to get abs you’re looking for a lot of food for a little bit of calories? I am! I made a flavorful health conscious frittata with a decent serving size. If you’re still hungry after first slice & you go for a second, you’re still under 300 calories.

Whole Wheat Fruit Waffles

Breakfast Time… It’s really the best course. You can have it for lunch or dinner too. I feel like it’s an excuse to most people too eat dessert in the morning.

I’ve always seen this pin about “fruit tacos” on Pinterest. It’s like a cocoa pancake with fruit inside of it, but after reading tons of reviews, too much work for little effort. Therefore, me wanting something sweet & delicious – made whole wheat fruit waffles! (I love my waffle iron, did you know you can bake anything in there almost?) & if you don’t have a waffle iron, you should seriously invest in one.

After searching for some good recipes I stumbled upon a good base, made it my own tweaks to be vegan. & It ended up being DELICIOUS! I was afraid with whole wheat flour or without loads of chocolate chips it wasn’t going to turn out good, I was wrong. It’s amazing
