My first vegan protein waffle recipe!

Some weeks ago I wanted to create or try a recipe for a vegan protein waffle. Until now, I hadn’t found any recipe that convince me. But, finally, while I was reading the MileHighHealthy blog, I found THE recipe.

I finally decided to try this recipe and it’s delicious. My own recipe actually has 30 gr of protein (6gr for every piece of 35gr). I’m gonna add the nutrition values with the recipe.

VEGAN PROTEIN WAFFLES

  • 60 gr of oat flour
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I’ve used Vanilla-flavoured aptonia protein powder)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup almond milk plus more as needed

First of all, mix dry ingredientes together and then add milk, blending well. You can you more than 1/2 cup almond milk if you need to create a smoother consistency (I did)

Heat your waffle iron and cook as usual.

That’s all! In less of five minutes you have my waffles ready!

The resulting waffle weighs 170g (394kcal) but I prefer to cut it into 5 parts in order to divide the intake and get a lighter breakfast.

The nutritional values are the following:

For the entire piece (170gr):

  • Calories: 394 kcal
  • Carbs: 50 gr
  • Fat: 8 gr
  • Protein: 30 gr

And for the small piece (35gr)

  • Calories: 81 gr
  • Carbs: 10 gr
  • Fat: 2 gr
  • Protein: 6 gr

In the future, I’ll try a cleaner version of this recipe.

Happy 1st year of healthy lifestyle!

Yes, one year ago I decided to go for a run in order to start a new lifestyle.

The August 7th, 2012 was the day when I decided to cut the passive lifestyle and start to eat clean. Since then, my life has changed a lot.

My weight was 62kg and I filled my body with junk food (people think that if you’re vegan you have to be skinny, but no, my friends, it’s not the rule!). I was fat and I felt bad with myself. That body wasn’t my body, not the body I wanted. So, one day – after trying different diets with no results – I decided to do some sport and eat clean. The easiest option sometimes seems like the most difficult, but really, it’s the best option!

I looked for motivation in Tumblr (it’s not a joke!). Tumblr was my starting point. I discovered that I wasn’t alone, there were a lot of people in the same situation. I spent many hours reading the workout plans of strangers, or what kind of food they ate. I logged in Myfitnesspal in order to control my daily intake and I worked out 4-5 times per week and trust me, it wasn’t anything difficult to do.

Furthermore, I started to follow some fit-girls’ profiles that kept my motivation on the highest level. Kelsey Byers, Jamie Eason, Ashely Scott (theskinnyfitgirl),… Nowadays, they still are my motivation, but now I am my main own motivation!

Months went by, and my body and mind started to change. At the beginning I used to wear a 42-size (Spanish measurements) and now, I wear a 36. My clothes fit better and it makes me feel more self-confident.

My self-confidence has grown up a lot, and I am so proud of myself.

Running was a surprise for me. I never thought that this kind of sport could change my life. Since then, I have run in several races, I have met awesome runners, I have joined at the Veggie Runners team in Spain,…

I’m very happy right now. My life has changed. And this change has been amazing! I’m all in this healthy-living lifestyle. And now, I know this is MY lifestyle.

and you know what? It’s only the beginning of my story… there’s gonna be more to live!
