And speaking of healthy...if you've considered - or more importantly, if you haven't considered eliminating meat and dairy from your diet, please follow the link below to an article I wrote recently for Technorati about the health benefits of adopting a plant-based, low-fat diet.

Whole Wheat & Flaxseed Waffles
(made 3 large waffles in my waffle iron)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup AP flour
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
2 tbsp. toasted wheat germ
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2 cups soy milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tbsp. egg replacer (such as made by Bob's Red Mill) + 3 tbsp. water (whisk until foamy)
Whatever waffle toppings you love
|With the works: peanut butter, bananas and toasted walnuts.|
When the waffle iron is hot, ladle on enough to almost meet the edges and cook until steam no longer comes out. You can keep them warm in a 300F oven while you prepare the rest - just place the waffles directly on the oven rack so they stay nice and crispy.
Serve and eat ASAP! This recipe can also be used to make pancakes.
(I adapted this recipe from one printed in Bon Appetit; they credit the original recipe to Red Stag Supperclub in Minneapolis.)
