On to today…

The day after a race or long run is always a HUNGRY day for me. Does that happen to anyone else?

Unfortunately, I didn’t have a donut. I woke up and had a green smoothie right away.

Today’s a rest day so I started the day with a walk. My right knee is a little sore from the race, but outside of that I feel good.

Now I have to share the most awesome breakfast I had on Saturday!

This weekend I thought up this recipe while running and thought I was some kinda food genius. I’m sure I’m not the first person to think of this, but I haven’t seen it on any of the blogs I read so I was SO EXCITED to try it out.

I love waffles, but don’t usually make them because they’re more work than pancakes. Well, these French Toast Waffles are less work than pancakes!

Question: Do you own a waffle maker?


  1. LizzieRun says

    I don’t own a waffle maker but, I want one now! Lol question for you! I noticed you use coconut oil spray (I only use coconut oil to cook anything) I didn’t realize there was such a beast… Where can I find it?!

  2. says

    Those look delicious! And ridiculously easy. I do own a waffle maker…I won it from somewhere a while ago.
    Also, I quote Rolly from 101 Dalmations all the time! His spiel is basically my motto.

  3. says

    I do have a belgian waffle maker and I’m ashamed to say I have never used it….it sits on the shelf with a wine chiller, a bread maker, a panina grill and a sandwich press, all of which have never been used…well, except the wine chiller, that’s a standard round here! 😉

      Agreed. A waffle maker that let’s you just pull off the waffle tile parts (I don’t know how to talk clearly) and dishwasher them is my dream wafflemaker.

    Man, I LOVE that idea! I do have a waffle maker. It’s pretty small and is able to be stored on-end like a book so it’s pretty space efficient. I love it!

    These waffles look amazing! I can’t wait to try them. As for post-race munchies, I too am a victim. In fact, I recently ran my first marathon and I woke up in the middle of the night with my tummy growling :( I don’t limit my calories after big runs like that either. I love food so much, but if there was a way to avoid post-run hunger I would definitely get in line!

    This is genius beyond genius. Like Nobel prize worthy genius!!!
    So I don’t own a waffle maker but am obsessed with waffles. My sister in law is the willam Sonoma queen and whips out her Cadillac waffle maker to make me batches of a dozen waffles and freezes them for me. They toast up perfectly in the toaster oven. I’m a lucky girl :)

  7. says

    I made these for dinner tonight- Holy Yum! I used costco gluten-free bread and topped them with low-sugar homemade strawberry jam. Delish!

  8. says

    i dont run races, but i am always hungry. i think it’s the baby’s fault…

    i haven’t made FT this way, but when i saw your post title i thought it was gonna be something i have done.. french toasted waffles. basically take left over waffles and dip them in FT batter and then cook them in a pan. granted, your way is a zillion times easier, but the other kind are good, too.

    love you.
