I have my groove back this week thanks to a more relaxed week! Today made day 2 of a terrific workout and a delicious breakfast that made this day go SO smoothly. I think I have become a creature of habit. Who wouldn't want a more consistent schedule during the week? I have heard that if you continue a new task for 40 days that it will become a habit. I think I have come to that point. When my schedule wavers and is changed because of traveling or busy weeks, I do not function well. All I can say is that I thank God for weeks like this week.
You know what also made today's breakfast a plus? Waffles! I know that today was Pancake Day and all but waffles were calling out my name today. I recently received a goodie package from FlaxMatters with items of my choice. I really enjoy flax, but how many ways can you consume flaxseed meal and seeds? Let me show you!
SmoothOmega Milled Flax is flaxseed meal that has been milled very finely and is perfect for smoothies. I usually have a problem with regular flaxseed meal from the store, since it is still somewhat coarse. This product tastes GREAT in smoothies without tasting the coarse meal. I added it to my smoothie this morning!It is also great for adding to your favorite bread recipe or even as an egg replacer, for all the lovely vegans out there!The same product comes in Singles ready for traveling or on-the-go for a busy week! I can't wait to try this on my next trip. Remember that a single serving (1/2 Tbsp) contains recommended daily intake of ALA Omega-3. These singles and regular bag of Milled Flax does not require refrigeration due to this company's superior process as opposed to the regular products out on shelves.
Pizzey's Premium Pancake and Waffle Mix is what I used today to make for a healthy breakfast! I actually have never made waffles but my husband had a waffle maker that I decided I would use for the first time. I normally do not choose to eat waffles because they have buttermilk or are made with white flour, but when I saw this product I knew I was going to enjoy trying it!

This mix has whole wheat flour, unbleached white flour, milled flaxseed, baking powder, and salt. All that was required of me was to add 1 cup of this delicious mix with 1 cup of milk (which I chose almond milk), 1 egg (Ener-G egg replacer), and 1 Tbsp oil. It was simple and quick and very tasty, even with my substitutions!
My breakfast was made complete by having this delicious product that provided me with the much needed supplement. Go to their website and check their products today! They offer free shipping with orders over $50!
