I hope you aren’t tired of pumpkin just yet because today I have another seasonal treat to share!
Pumpkin Almond Butter Waffles! These should be on every fall breakfast menu. Made with high fiber, seasonal pumpkin and heart-healthy almond butter. Pumpkin is an excellent source of beta-carotene, a plant pigment that we convert to vitamin A, our skin- and vision-loving nutrient.
I used Naturally More’s Roasted Almond Butter which has flaxseeds and probiotics added!
Flaxseeds are a good source of those essential omega-3 ALA fats that support brain and heart health. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that support our digestion and immune system. Yup – they are found in more foods than just yogurt!
These waffles are also VEGAN.
While I don’t label myself vegan or vegetarian, I love educating my clients and viewers about the benefits of incorporating more plant-based foods into the diet. It’s great for our health and the environment. If you are vegan or vegetarian it is important to work with a dietitian to make sure you are meeting all your nutritional needs, namely nutrients like B12, iron, calcium and vitamin D. I will be sharing my plant-based tips this Friday on ABC’s Lowcountry Live!
If you make these, be sure to share with me on Instagram!
