Chocolate – Peanut Butter Waffles

Today is the last day of training in the evening for the Las Vegas Marathon.  I have been training with a late start for 3 weeks and with that I have been tweaking my nutrition.  I have eaten 2 nut butter and jelly sandwiches the night before and then had pancakes at midday to prep for the run.  I have had 1 sandwich and pancakes with a smoothie.  Neither time have I felt hungry but I have also labored at the end of each run so I wanted to tweak it again.

Yesterday I had pizza at lunch and then toward the end of the evening I had a bowl of granola along with two rice cakes with nut butter, honey and banana.  This morning I got up at 5am and had a smoothie and then I had brunch at 10:30a of chocolate / peanut butter / banana waffles with fruit.  I skipped the egg and toast this time around so we shall see how the body reacts to the new brunch.

Since I don’t like to hoard my recipes I am giving them to you to try out for you and your family.

    Okay is this a silly question (followed you from Mothehood and LOVE the site!)…but how do you figure out all the nutritional percentages when you are making from scratch??…

      Annette – Thank you very much for coming over from Amanda’s site, I truly appreciate it.

      When I am putting together a recipe I put my ingredients and quantities into either Livestrong.com or SparkPeople.com. They will tabulate everything for you and provide you with the data.

      Please let me know if you have any other questions and I’ll be happy to respond to you.
