What’s Dr. Doni Eating? Gluten-Free Chia & Quinoa Waffle

Chia & Quinoa WaffleGluten-free chia & quinoa waffle (could be home made) with almond butter and frozen organic blueberries, plus a little organic maple syrup.

1 Chia Plus frozen waffle by Nature’s Path
2 Tb almond butter (could use a different type of nut butter and a couple pieces of turkey bacon instead)
1/4 cup frozen organic blueberries by Wyman’s of Maine
1 Tb organic maple syrup by Maple Grove Farms of Vermont

Each waffle has about 15 grams of carbohydrates (high fiber carbs), and 2 Tb of almond butter has 7 grams of protein. The berries and syrup add just a few more grams of carbohydrate, making it possible to enjoy this tasty breakfast while keeping with my recommendations to balance carbs with protein.
