Gluten Free Organic Waffles

My dad whipped up some protein filled waffles with all my favorite flours in it. They were so good and the texture was perfect! So, duh, I have to share!


  • 1/3 cup Arrowhead Mills Organic Brown Rice Flour
  • 1/3 cup Arrowhead Mills Organic Oat Flour
  • 1/3 cup Arrowhead Mills Organic Buck Wheat Flour
  • 1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose gluten free baking flour
  • 1/4 cup Organic ground flax seed
  • 2 eggs
  • ~3/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 1/2 Scoops chocolate Designer Whey protein powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Aluminum Free baking powder


Mix the dry ingredients first! Then place the milk and eggs in the dry ingredients. You can make these into pancakes or waffles…I did waffles! Get some olive oil spray, PAM, or coconut oil (that’s what I used), and cover your waffle maker with it or your skillet. Medium heat. Pour 1/4-1/3 cup of batter for pancakes or put enough batter to fill waffle sections.

And eat! And this is the only picture I got. I was starving. I ran first thing this morning on an empty stomach.


And I have to share my awesome TACO SALAD from Jason’s Deli lastnight! Perfect organic meal, and I still have leftovers!


Happy Pancake Day!

So today is totally pancake day…so, of course I make a pancake.

Wait…haven’t we had a pancake day already this year?

Oh, who cares! I love me some pancakes.

I made a chocolate protein pancake with sprinkled stevia on top. It was good, by the way.


And my dad sneaked a photo onto the camera of his pancake this morning…which had chocolate chips on top! So I thought I’d share Smile


He’s got some pretty great photo skills. Perfect upward view.


No running…at all. Because it rained A L L day L O N G! Except this morning of course…and I do not have time to run in the morning. That would take some serious effort times a thousand!

But I did get cardio in. I warmed up for 6 minutes and did complete the Purely Twins’ 12 minute plank workout. I love this workout because it involves cardio and core together. Believe me, you will be wiped out.

Then I completed this:

  • 10 adv. pushups
  • 20 butterfly situps
  • 10 adv. pushups
  • 20 butterfly situps
  • 10 adv. pushups
  • 20 butterfly situps

And I also have been doing this Yoga For Runners video from Tara Stiles.


Tonight was a mixture of things…but definitely delicious. I scrambled eggs with spinach in coconut oil (no cheese. just clean), baked a small sweet potato, at a scoop of whole wheat bowtie pasta my mom had prepared. And some Italian sausage.



What do you do when you can’t run but planned to? Back up plan?

Tapering Week & My Tips

Countdown time.

Half marathon is in 6 days and I’m nervous/excited at the same time. Not unusual or anything.

(I wrote this at 2:00 P.M) Right now, its raining outside and whole running thing does not seem too appealing. But, this girl needs to run. So I guess a soaking wet run is gonna happen. Fabulous Annoyed


I really didn’t want much for dinner so I sautéed some broccoli and spinach together. Also ate a little of my dad’s chili.



What Do I Do a Week Before the Race? What do I eat? Drink?

  • First I get plenty of sleep…don’t want to be drained.
  • I watch out on every thing I’m eating. No sugary sweets or anything that might make me feel like I have no energy.
                  • What am I eating?
                      • Quinoa, whole wheat bread, nut butters, chicken, lots of vegetables, fruits (bananas and apples and strawberries so far), almond milk, salads…things that I usually eat but just being cautious.
  • I’m not doing any HIIT, sprints, speed work, interval training, hill work, tons of burpees, squats, weights, etc.
  • I am doing butterfly situps, pushups, and lots of stretching! And still doing plank workouts to strengthen core.
  • Drinking lots and lots of water. I am also drinking tea, coffee, and almond milk. I should be drinking some coconut water but don’t have any on hand.
  • Performing some yoga moves to open up the thighs and hips (something every runner should do).
  • And I’m not stressing. I’m being calm, but excited, happy, and cool about the whole thing. If I don’t make my time, it will be okay. There’s always another chance!
                • What Am I Going to Eat the Night Before?
                    • Good question…the night before I’m not having a big a spaghetti meal. Why? Because I feel like that would not work well with me at 7 o’clock in the morning on race day. Instead I’ll have something better…not sure what it will be but I’ll let ya know!
                    • Friday Night, however, I’ll probably have something crazy…but still not sure on that either. Will be blogging all week to talk about it!

*And guess what…I went running! Had to add this in before I posted! And I got in an extra mile just because! Nice and easy run…<3



Happy camper. (Note: I did not look like this while running…this was definitely a before picture.)


Happy Running
