Recipe: Carrot Cake Protein Waffles for One

If you don’t know by now, some things are a matter of habit – pancakes, waffles, egg whites, peanut butter.  But sometimes, things need to get spiced up a bit. Spice is what keeps it fun. Spice is what keeps me less than bored with my food.  Last week, since Easter was quickly approaching and […]
