Paleo-friendly Belgian Waffles


Maybe it's my affection for the tv show Parks + Recreation and the character Leslie Knope, but I have begun a love-affair with Belgian waffles. They are kind of irresistible, from the initial crunch to the tender inner-waffle structure. Those nooks were just meant to hold pools of warm maple syrup.

For my friends with a more structured eating lifestyle, I wanted to figure out a way for them to indulge in some waffle love. So, with a little help from Max of Max's Best Bootcamp, I developed this recipe for paleo-friendly waffles.

Not-So-Chunky Monkey Smoothie

Back in the day I used to be able to eat an entire pint of Ben + Jerry's Chunky Monkey ice cream in one sitting. I felt no guilt and I also did not gain a pound. Oh, those were the days!


Now, just the thought of eating that much ice cream gives me a headache. Yes, I will still indulge in moderately portioned sweet treats, but I also like to find ways to make them a little bit healthier. That's where this Not-So-Chunky Monkey Smoothie comes in.
