Thank goodness today is the last day to my work week…yesterday was SOOOO busy! I had a packed schedule of patients and our docs kept coming in with walk-ins, it was crazy busy! My busiest day as an RD yet, believe it or not! And of course, I felt like poo. But, alas, I AM finally feeling better. 😀 I even managed to get in some weeding and a short 2-mile run last night. While I didn’t want to run at all whatsoever…I did anyways. I don’t want to get behind on my 101 Days of Summer challenge goal to run at least 70 of the 101 days of summer. And it’s never a bad deal to catch up with The Hills while jogging 😀
I typically don’t “crave” certain meals because I meal plan through the week. Last night, however, I was craving waffles! And since I am yet to grocery shop (it’s been nearly 2 weeks!), I threw together Cinnamon Apple Waffles!
Cinnamon Apple Topping
2 apples, red variety
2 Tbsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
Peel and dice apples. Mix apples, cinnamon, and syrup in a sauce pan over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until softened and caramelized. Serve over waffles or pancakes. Serves 2.

The actual waffle was made from Bob’s Red Mill Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix. Bob’s sent me this mix a few months back and finally got around to trying it. Good thing it stays good for a long time! It was wonderful! 🙂 And the nutrition stats weren’t bad, either! The HUGE Belgian waffle was 400 calories; 20 grams of fat; 200 mg. cholesterol; 525 mg. sodium; 42 g. carbohydrate; 6 g. fiber; and 15 g. protein. While the meal was delicious, I was over my carbohydrates for that meal.
…It was worth it.
I have to show off my garden a bit more today…it’s growing SO fast! Oklahoma = awesome gardening weather!
Random Question #1: What is your workplace attire? Are you okay with it, or do you wish it were something else?
Random Question #2: Pancakes or waffles? Tough one, I know!
I currently wear scrubs and love it! However, I know that won’t always be the case 😦 RD’s typically wear business casual with a lab coat, and it’s fine…but not as great as scrubs!
