Buckwheat Waffles

When you're trying to promote weight loss and create happy hormones, most women jump immediately to cutting calories, skipping meals and increasing cardio time. Unfortunately, for many women this is a temporary fix, at best and a disastrous route at worst. Cutting calories often comes at the expense of key macronutrients like healthy fats and proteins. Often women cut back too severely and are "afraid" to eat too much. Eating smaller, macro-deficient meals and skipping meals will often send the body into insulin, blood sugar and cortisol chaos. When this happens, the body will move to survival mode (remember, we are hardwired for survival!) and hoard any and all energy it can. This means weight GAIN for many women.





So what can you do? EAT. Breakfast is a perfect time to load up and fuel up. Protein and fiber both keep you full and promote weight loss. Fiber and protein trigger the exact same chemicals as those in popular weight loss meds Wegovy and Ozempic (and similar)! No shots required.


One of the best ways to get all of these in one breakfast? Buckwheat waffles topped with chia seed pudding, raspberry coulis and roasted pecans. This breakfast packs in the protein with 43g and fiber with 23g! That's 1/3 of your daily protein and 2/3 of your daily fiber! All by the end of breakfast. You feel fueled all morning long.
