In our adult lives, rarely do we have moments when we have the feeling that you get from discovering things and places for the first time. As a child, these discoveries might happen on a daily basis; a new flower, a new insect, a new food. But there is something to cherish when it comes to discovering a glimpse of something that awakens our senses and allows us to feel the astonishment of something new all at once.
When I stepped out of the taxi cab onto the street in Monterey Bay, California, I couldn't help but realize that the components of this place truly were a miracle. New flowers, new smells, the sea, the air, and the sustainable options; all readily available. I saw the ocean for the first time again that day.
My reawakening to the beauty of nature and what this great earth offers all came from one little recipe for healthy waffles.
To this day, I am astonished that a simple recipe for healthy waffles allowed me to have the opportunity to travel to California and meet Myra Goodman, founder of Earthbound Farms as well as numerous other influential individuals (Alton Brown included!) dedicated to living life in a sustainable way. This was the hands down one of my most favorite weeks and I still feel incredibly blessed to have experienced all of it.
Today, I would like to share a simple, decadent waffle recipe with you (slightly different than original version). These waffles come together quickly and are incredibly delicious!
Variations- Add a scoop of vanilla or chocolate protein powder to mix for a little extra flavor/protein!
