|These were so tasty that I took a bite before I remembered to snap a picture|
1 1/4 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup coconut milk or water would work also
1/2 cup pureed pumpkin (I used a mix of canned and fresh. Fresh has more water so you may be able to skip the 1/4 cup of coconut milk if you use fresh.)
1/2 tbs cinnamon
1/2 pumpkin pie spice
If you want to be fancy combine your dry ingredients first. If you're an entrepreneur (read as "lazy") just throw all the ingredients into your KitchenAid mixer and mix away! While the batter is mixing, heat your waffle iron and grease with 1/2 tbs of butter or coconut oil. Once the iron is hot, pour 1/3 cup of batter and cook until golden. Mine cooked very quickly today. Every waffle iron will be different so you're on your own for cooking time. Enjoy with your favorite toppings! If you skip the maple syrup, these would technically by 21dsd friendly!

Crossfit update and rant: We've been doing Crossfit since September and man do I feel strong!! I also feel heavy. I keep telling myself, it's all muscle, it's all muscle, but I couldn't make myself believe it until this past weekend. After seeing this picture, I feel so proud of myself and all that I have achieved with Crossfit.
I feel healthy and alive, and in the grand scheme of things that should be all that matters. Right? I'm sure you're thinking if only it were that easy. And you're right it is hard. But why??? Why is it so hard for us as women to accept compliments? And be satisfied with our bodies? I have a hard time celebrating myself and accepting compliments. I know I'm not the only woman who feels this way. I recently read this amazing article from Jen Sinkler at Thrive, and it made me decide that I am going to be "unapologetically strong." You should read it too...and be unapologetic about your strength, success, and beauty!
"Mrs. Zeller, do you have make-up on today?"
"Yes, for picture day!"
"But Mrs. Zeller, you're prettier without make-up."
3rd graders melt my heart daily. I swear they teach me more than I teach them.
If you're feeling in a funk about your health and fitness lately, you should read this also from Jen Sinkler (she's inspired me lately). It's exactly what I need to hear when I become too obsessed with fitness.
