Waffles are one of my favorite breakfast choices; however, they are loaded with carbs that I really shouldn’t be eating. Don’t these waffles look so good! I really should make these and freeze them so that I can eat them instead. It is a good way to get some veggies into your diet too. These waffles are gluten-free and vegan. Add some fresh fruit and coffee for a healthy Mother’s Day treat. You can find the recipe by Emilie at Emilie Eats here.

I love pizza but it too is packed full of unhealthy carbs. Who says you can’t eat pizza for breakfast? This pizza will quickly grab your attention and best of all it is a healthy option. I love that you can whip up this wholesome meal in 15 minutes. I love that you can even make a wide variety of breakfast pizza too. If you want to get creative, you can prepare the crust and yogurt sauce ahead of time. Then let everyone pick the ingredients that they want to add to their pizza. We suggest adding nuts, flax, chia seeds, chocolate chips, berries, trail mix, or come up with your own idea. Find the recipe on Tip Buzz here.
