Healthy Waffles Recipe
1/2 cup rolled oats (can be toasted
1 first by putting thin layer
1 in pan
1 and baking at 350 degrees
1 for 15-20 minutes, or until
1 lightly toasted)
1 package rapidrise yeast
1 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp oat bran
2 tbsp nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 cup cornmeal
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp wheat germ
Mix above ingredients in a large bowl. Heat ingredients below until
very warm (125-130 degrees) and stir into the dry mixture.
3/4 cup skim milk 2 egg whites 1/4 cup dark molasses
Let the batter sit for about 20 minutes, or overnight in the
refrigerator. You may want to add more milk or water to get them to
the consistency you like, depending on whether you're going to turn
them into waffles or pancakes. I have varied the dry ingredients
radically, depending on what I have around the house. When I don't
have molasses, I increase the amount of honey and other liquids. No
matter what I do to this recipe, it always seems to turn out great.
I estimate the fat grams per 7" x 7" waffle to be <3 grams, which can
vary depending on the grains you use.

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Fiber is important:
Decreasing the carbs in your diet often results in reduction in fiber also. Look out for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are fiber-rich to restore the balance.
* Use low carb chocolate for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your favorite chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't mix in those high carbohydrate 'real' chocolate. Chop up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, turnip greens and sweet potatoes)
These amazing fruit and veg have high levels of alpha and beta carotenes believed by doctors to help in cancer prevention, particularly those cancers involving the esophagus and stomach. Many also help you lose weight, so you should add them to your weight loss program.
