Mid-Week Refueling Tip: Savory Waffle

Sometimes you discover a post-workout refueling option so perfect  you absolutely must share it.  Today is that day. You are all welcome for the tip I am about to share with you.*

This weekend, after a three hour bike ride (though not a very strenuous one), my friend and I realized we needed to refuel before our afternoon hike.  As two people with extreme decision-making challenges, we wandered aimlessly for a good 20 minutes, finding nothing that appealed to our raging appetites.  I had just resigned myself to a lunch of bubble tea or Dairy Queen ice cream when we noticed the perfect alternative: waffles.

I am a big fan of waffles in general–who isn’t?–but I haven’t delved often into savory waffles given I have a sweet tooth the size of Everest. This all changed the moment I met this beauty:

Have you ever seen a more perfect specimen?
Have you ever seen a more perfect specimen?

Let me tell you why this is the perfect pre- or post-workout refueling option:

  • Protein? Check.
  • Greens? Check.
  • Fruit? Check.
  • Carbs? Check.
  • Omegas? Check.
  • Healthy fats (care of a little olive oil drizzle)? Check.
  • Deliciousness? Triple check.

That right there is balanced nutrition and deliciousness to boot.  It also kept me full for an entire 6 hours, which is almost unheard of for me. So next time you’re in the market for energy and staying power remember the savory waffle.

*Obviously I am not suggesting this as a nutritionally sound post-workout snack.  But damn it tasted good.
