Omelet Waffles

These are not your ordinary waffles. And I should sure hope not, unless you typically eat normal waffles with avocado and bacon.... 

These are Omelet Waffles! Omelet Waffles are pretty much just eggs and cheese cooked in a waffle iron instead of a skillet. But for some reason, when food is in the shape of waffles, it just makes it that much more exciting. All of a sudden something that used to be monotonous becomes something new and special.  

I'm always excited to find new savory breakfast foods, especially ones that are quick and easy. Eating a good, savory breakfast with plenty of protein and fat is a critical part of keeping the body healthy. Most food marketed as "breakfast foods" are all sweet. Really sweet. Cereals, pancakes, waffles, muffins, donuts, pastries, yogurt, granola, etc. It is food that is packed with refined, processed grains and sugars that put a tremendous load on the body when eaten. The processed grains and sugars are absorbed quickly into the blood stream, overwhelming the body as it tries to get blood sugar levels back down.

The constant spiking of blood sugar levels with processed foods or sugary foods puts tremendous wear on organs such as the pancreas, liver, and adrenals. It also depletes mineral stores which should be used for other functions and processes in the body. Combine all these factors with the lack of nutrients in marketed "breakfast foods" and we've got the perfect recipe for diabetes, ADD, and a plethora of other diseases we see plaguing American children. 

Long story short, breakfast for each of us should include plenty of protein and fat. These foods are digested more slowly than refined carbohydrates and provide a much steadier source of energy. 

Eggs are a great source of both protein and fat and are incredibly versatile. Sunny side up, easy over, scrambled, and.... WAFFLES! It's perfect.
