Well Cooked: Protein Waffles
A lot of people have been taught that carbs are bad and to stay away from them. There is some truth to that but also a lot of misconceptions. For one, your brain needs the glucose in carbs to be able to function properly… and that right there is enough for me to keep eating pasta and spaghetti all the time. I rest my case.
I see on social media that people think that they can’t have pancakes or waffles for breakfast because it will screw up their progress. I would like to make your breakfast dreams come true and say, “YOU CAN EAT THE PANCAKES AND WAFFLES!” It is all about portion control, ingredients and your daily activity. If you are eating three Hungry Jack waffles and going to your desk job with no workout in sight then yeah, the waffles will screw up your progress. (Honestly, if that’s your lifestyle what “progress” are you talking about?)
If you want the carbs at breakfast then make small changes so that you don’t have to feel guilty after. Use a whole grain mix, add fruit, have an active day, and only eat what you can until you feel satisfied... Not full, satisfied.
In my third segment of Well Cooked, Kaiti and I make delicious protein waffles (yes, there are of course screw ups). To remind you why we continue to make these cringy cooking videos: I will make meals that you are too afraid to try. This is about getting you more comfortable in the kitchen cooking meals that will benefit your health!
