Individual Pumpkin Waffle...

Hello Friends,

How's you week been? It's very different for me now that I work. I was used to being at home all the time and cleaned whenever I wanted and made my treats for the week whenever I wanted. But now I only have the weekends. How did I ever do this when the kids were little?? LOL

Friday after work Hubby and I went to Chilis and sat in the bar for happy hour. I had 1 glass of Cabernet Sav, some buffalo wings dipped in blue cheese dressing, spinach artichoke dip with celery, a few chips and salsa - maybe 5, and 2 of hubby's chicken nachos off his plate. It was good after a long day.

Saturday morning we had a appointment to wrap up our taxes at 10, after we went to eat breakfast  - but it was lunchtime at a restaurant in Glendora with my boss and his wife. I ordered a omelet with potatoes. I ate like 1/3 of the omelet and a few bites of the potatoes and 2 strawberries.

After that on the way home we decided to go to see Captain America. We both love all those movies. It was good and I had popcorn.

No dinner  for me too much popcorn. I drank a cup of Valerian root tea that a friend gave me. It's supposed to help with sleep. I think it did a little.

SO-This morning Hubby was being REAL NICE for some reason... He started dusting for me. He had 2 swiffers - one in each hand going all around the house. Then he actually put in a load of laundry in the washing machine... Then he asked me how to use the Vacuum??? And actually Vacuumed... REALLY!! OK- What the HECK did he do wrong?? LOL
This was my breakfast this morning. I have been on a Pumpkin waffle kick all this week... I make the batter in a bowl like a muffin then pour the batter in the waffle maker. I like the texture better this way. Easy Peasy...
I put cream cheese and Nature's Hollow on top of this one and ate a little pc of omelet left over from yesterday.

Individual Pumpkin Waffle:
1 (heaping) tbsp of coconut oil and pumpkin puree in a bowl and melt in microwave.
add: 1 tbsp of each; chia seeds, flaxseed, almond flour, coconut flour - mix well.
a couple shakes of ea: cinnamon, allspice, ground cloves, pumpkin pie spice - a little bit of vanilla extract, 8 drops of vanilla stevia, 1/2 tsp or less of baking powder.  MIX well.
Then add 1 egg and mix well and pur the batter into you heated waffle maker.

Makes 1 perfect Healthy waffle... Your Welcome - ENJOY!

Gonna go clean the bathrooms and take my furry kids for a walk. I've been going for at least 2 miles every day and missed yesterday. Maybe twice today - who knows.
Have a great rest of the weekend.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Awe...Yaaaay...I Bet He Looked Gooood With Swiffer In Each Hand!!!!!! xox

  2. Great blog as always! :)

    Also, the Valerian root you took for sleep is supposed to help with Essential Tremors as well. I'm hoping it's a "win-win" for you. :)

    Hugs For You,

    Linda in Western NC :)

  3. Hi girlfriend Just want to say first off that I am usually reading your blog in bed on my ipad or iphone. Several times I tried to leave a message and then I lose the message. Maybe I'm not signed in properly to google, I'm not sure. Anyway, love reading your blog as always and I hope you never stop. You have words that resonate with people and make a difference. I'm feeling like I have nothing to say these days. I'm still losing....oh so slowly, but you know I have all the thyroid stuff going on, so I'm not giving up. Love that hubby pitched in to do the housework. You deserve a break!! XO!!

  4. That waffle looks huge and delicious! I always love how one or both of your furry kids is in the background. My hubby helps clean around the house sometimes, but laundry....no way! The swiffters...how funny! I am losing, but at a slow rate. My lab work from my dr. last week was PERFECT!!!!

  5. Hi Rosalie, just made your waffle recipe for the first time and they came out awesome loved them. I also will be on a waffle kick this week. Thanks for your recipes.

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
