What a non-stop, crazy-packed, go-go-go week it has been.

In my efforts to draw back to something so familiarly calming, yoga, I set my alarm early intending to rise for an early morning session.

Ha. Not very likely.

When am I going to just accept the fact that I’m not a morning person and stop making early morning exercise pipe dreams? So instead of waking up early for yoga this morning, I did something else that would equally calm me, cooking.

For breakfast, I fashioned a Van’s 8 Whole Grains waffle by placing tiny chocolate chips in each little hole. WOW! Why didn’t I do this earlier? This sucker was so good I was tempted to make another, though I didn’t, it was truly a treat and got me motivated enough to lace up my running shoes and go for a late morning run.

1 Waffle
15-20 Chocolate Chips

Simply take your waffle and place as many chocolate chips as you want in every other hole making sure that the tip of the chip goes in first.

Then place the waffle into your toaster or conventional oven for about 2-5 minutes. Watch as the waffle crisps and as the chocolate chips melt. Once it looks done, take it out and let it cool.



Extra Toppings:
A dust of cinnamon
Drizzled agave
A spoonful of almond or natural peanut butter
Slices of banana
A dollop of whip cream
