It’s carb loading time! Fortunately, carb loading doesn’t mean that you have to veer off your clean eating path and start downing white bread, white pasta, and loads of sugar to give your body those-much needed carbs; nor does it mean that you’ll be banished to the realm of boring oatmeal either. This sweet and savory clean eats carb loading breakfast is the perfect way to fuel your body AND satisfy those taste buds. Enjoy this one guys— I know I did!
Apple-Cinnamon-Clove Sweet Potato Waffles
1 apple, cored/seeded, largely grated
1 large sweet potato, spiralized
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon clove
1 packet stevia
2 egg whites
Preheat waffle iron. In a lightly oiled pan over high heat, saute the spiralized sweet potatoes until tender (about 10 minutes). Afterwards, toss the spiralized sweet potatoes, grated apple, cinnamon, clove, stevia, and egg whites together until combined. Brush the waffle iron lightly with oil, and add half of the waffle mix; cook until golden brown— roughly 10 minutes. Repeat with the other half of the waffle mix. Serve with a dollop of greek yogurt, a drizzle of raw honey or pure maple, or (my personal favorite) top with a pan-fried dippy egg!
