Waffles for Weight Loss!
What is a big, satisfying waffle worth to you? You may be craving the fresh, slightly sweet taste of a waffle and your favorite toppings, but that waffle brunch or breakfast may not be worth the calories and carbs if you are trying to lose weight. There is no need to forego waffles on this National Waffle Day or any other day, though. Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix lets you make fresh waffles without weight gain.
Protein and Fiber without Baggage
A high-protein, high-fiber breakfast can help you stay full throughout the morning as they slow digestion and stabilize blood sugar. Each serving of Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix provides 5 grams of protein along with 11 grams of fiber. This comes in a package without any sugar and with only 55 calories and 6 grams of net carbs. The waffles are:
- Paleo and keto-friendly
- Made with real cinnamon and monkfruit
Compare these facts to a plain restaurant waffle without toppings, which could have 360 calories and over 40 grams of carbohydrates, and you really do have something to celebrate. Even a small frozen waffle has 13 grams of active carbs – twice as many as in a serving of Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix.
Quick and Easy Waffles
You can make Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix in minutes. Add water, egg, and coconut oil, mix well, and follow the instructions on the package to get perfect waffles. After removing them from the waffle iron, you can top your waffles and serve them with your favorite sides.
Toppings and Sides
Since Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix has such low counts, you can serve your waffles with toppings or sides and still fit your waffle treat into a weight loss meal plan. You can top your waffle with:
- Sugar-Free Maple Syrup with 20 calories and 5 grams of fiber per 2-tablespoon serving.
- Berries or peaches with cottage or ricotta cheese
- Yogurt and toasted coconut
- Peanut butter or nut butter
- Nekstella hazelnut spread
You can also serve it with sides such as eggs or vegetarian breakfast sausage for a filling, diet-friendly meal.
Another option is to give your waffles a savory slant for a change of pace. You can top them with baked tomatoes or mushrooms, spinach cooked with pumpkin, or melted cheese.
You do not need to wait for a special Sunday brunch to have waffles since these are so quick and easy, not to mention friendly for your waistline. Each bag of Lakanto Low-Carb Pancake and Waffle Mix has 17 servings so you can make enough for the whole family. What a way to celebrate National Waffle Day!
