From time to time, I go through some unusual food cravings. Normally I like to eat a certain food item, I only like to eat it once a week or even less than that, so I don’t get sick of it. It is easy for me to like something one day and not the next day. I try my best to hold off on the foods I like to eat the most.
Recently I have developed a craving for waffles. Nothing special, just the Eggo Waffles you buy in the freezer section at your local supermarkets. I know my diet is poor, but I do try to eat healthy things ever now and then. I know my daily diet is lacking those natural grains or the nutrition you could get from a piece of whole grain or wheat bread. The Eggo company has a whole grain waffle now and it isn’t that bad. I prefer the original waffle better, but since you’re getting some good nutrition with these whole grain waffles, I started buying them.
New Whole Grain Eggo Waffles
Normally I will take two of the Eggo nutri-grain waffles out and put them in toaster. Our toaster doesn’t work that well. It seems one side cooks faster than the other side. So to cook them evenly, I have to flip them over and push them back down to cook a few minutes longer. When they come out hot, I like to take butter and smear over them. I realize the butter isn’t that healthy and something I could do without, but it does make them taste so much better. After the butter is applied to my 2 nutri grain waffles, I will stack them on top of each other. I will take my plain maple syrup and cover the entire grid of the waffle pattern with syrup. After I have each little square filled in with syrup, I like to flip it over, so the syrup will drain into the bottom waffle. It’s almost like a sandwich, but instead of loaf bread, I use my waffles for the bread. For the deli meat substitution, I will just use the maple syrup I poured on earlier. After all of these steps are complete, I just grab a fork and dig in. This has been my breakfast, lunch, and dinner for awhile now. I have been meeting my daily requirements of these whole natural grains, from eating these new Eggo Waffles.
If you haven’t tried them yet, go ahead and pick up a box the next time you are at the grocery store. These new whole grain waffles are pretty good to eat. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would give them a 6 or 7 in the taste category, with the original Eggo Waffles getting a 8 mark. So they are a little less on the tasty department, but for what they lack in taste, they make up for in nutrition. And let’s face it gang, the nutrition scale is the one we need to focus on more and we can treat our taste buds on special weekends. The meals we eat Monday through Friday, must be healthier than the foods we have been eating. The United States of America is number one in the World; when it comes to obesity. So try to find some more grains to eat through the week and if you do good through the week, treat your self to a tasty meal on the weekends.
