Post 100 Day Challenge
That all being said, you thought I was going to quit after 100 days, didn’t you?! Welp jokes on you, I’m back! I’ve been on such a roll that I’m not really sure how to stop at this point, so I’m thinking of making this a 365-day challenge, TBD.
I’m actually nervous to stop. Why? Because when I stop it usually means that this gets put on the backburner and I get a huge writer’s block. So, bare with me a few more days/weeks/months as I want to continue producing content and that means another 100 days (or more) of sassy nutrition, education, personal info, and more.
Is there something you want to see more of? Let me know! I have plenty of ideas up my sleeve but I also want to give the people what they want 😉
That being said, I made some amazing connections over the last 100 days and I am excited for the opportunities that are coming to fruition in 2019. The first one happened to fall perfectly on my 101st day (that’s today)! Right after the challenge to keep me going and wanting more. If you work in the blogging/foodie/nutrition/influencer world you know everything can take time.
It can seem like to the public that everything happens overnight but take this opportunity for instance, it has been 4 months in the making! I want to make sure that the companies & brands I partner with make sense for you and for me AND for the brand, so patience is a virtue.
This opportunity was with a brand I met at Expo East thanks to my new friend Dana (from Real Food with Dana) called Swapples. I mentioned them before in my Friday Favorites, but I wanted to give you guys more of an opportunity to try them out, and give you a quick and easy recipe.
Because I love their waffles. They not only taste good but they are also good for you. They are easy to eat and digest, which in my experience are the 2 most important things in your nutrition.
I work with a ton of everyday athletes and we need foods that are easy (ready tasty & convenient) to eat AND fuel our lifestyle as well as our health. These fit the bill. Far too often athletes are restricting their carbohydrate intake in hopes of improving body composition or performance.
While I applaud the effort of removing HIGHLY processed foods, we tend to set ourselves up for failure with an inadequate source of nutrition (read: carbs) for our sport/fitness/exercise. These S
Okay, now for the FREE stuff. This week on my Instagram, I have teamed up with Swapples to giveaway a sample pack of Swapples (aka you get to try all the flavors) AND a free 2-week meal plan with yours truly. I really believe in this brand and think that they have a good thing going so I figured what better way to help you reach your goals this year than to get some free food AND a free meal plan.
This giveaway ends on Friday (1/4/2019) at 11:59 pm EST and is only available to those living in the 48 contiguous United States. If you can’t wait, you can go ahead and order yourself your own Swapples using the code SASSY15 for 15% off your first order. You won’t be sorry!
Alrighty, now for today’s recipe. It is a spin off on an old favorite, the good ol’ PB&J. Fun fact about that sandwich, it’s the only thing I would take to lunch in elementary school. I was obsessed and wanted no other sandwich, I’d put up a stink. However, I actually stopped taking it one day not because I was sick of it but because my brother told me if I kept eating them I’d turn into one.
I used to believe anything he would tell me (*eye roll*) and am so glad I decided to add PB&J’s back into my life once I realized he was just messing with me.
I tend to eat them on a rice cake BUT ever since finding Swapples I think my new love has turned to PB&J Waffles. I love to eat these waffles pre-workout as they are a great source of carbohydrates (41g in the Cinamon) and they are easy on the stomach in my case! I had one today before a brutal bike workout and man did I feel energized.
Enjoy this recipe for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack, you can’t go wrong!
Pro Tip: Use any freezer or homemade waffle in this recipe to make it your own! If you are using a plain waffle, I suggest topping the peanut butter with a sprinkle of cinnamon! If using Swapples, I suggest the Cinnamon or Blueberry flavors!
- 1 waffle I used Cinnamon Swapples
- 1.5 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tbsp jelly/jam
- 1/2 tbsp hemp hearts
- 1/4 cup berries
- Heat up waffle per brand instructions
- Top with peanut butter, then jelly/jam, hemp hearts, & berries
I don’t normally eat a sweet breakfast but this one might be in my line up for pre-workout! I love anything that has peanut butter, so it won’t be a hard switch.
I would love to know, do you prefer savory or sweet for breakfast?!
