These past few weeks, I’ve had to bring my workouts to a screeching halt due to a pinched nerve in my lower back. Seriously, if it’s not one thing it’s another. It’s okay though. The rest has been good for me. 5 years of working out at a high intensity can’t be good. We need rest. I think I might have been overtraining and that caused me to have injuries one right after another. I feel good now but I’m taking the rest of this week off to see how I feel.
Funny thing though, with this rest I feel leaner and stronger. I credit it to practicing yoga everyday and eating right. I enjoy eating healthy. It keeps me energized with no stomach pain from fried or processed foods. I don’t think I could teach yoga feeling like that.
Eating healthy can become boring. That’s why I love looking for new foods to try. Samantha and Alexis Belbel from Get Simply Stacked sent me a sample of their grain free, gluten-free, healthy waffle mix.
They are very sweet girls who actually used to reside in El Paso, so you know they’re great! After being diagnosed with Hypothyroidism two years ago, they set out to make a quality product that was paleo and didn’t contain gluten. It has just 3 all natural ingredients including organic coconut flour. Since they recommended to make waffles with it, that’s just what I did.
The only tips I have are you need to add more liquid than it says. I find when using coconut flour, it thickens up. And be patient. It takes a little longer than a regular waffle mix.
These waffles were delicious! I love anything coconut. These girls made it easy with their great mix. Thank you Alexis and Samantha!
