Vegan Waffle to the Rescue!

by Meghann on March 6, 2010

Happy Saturday everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

Derek and I were party animals last night. I believe we were both snoring on the couch before 10:00. P-arrrr- tay! ๐Ÿ˜‰

At least the early bed time made waking up at 6:30 for our 5 mile run this morning not seem like big deal at all.

We headed to a favorite trail for the 5 miles and kept it at a 10:00 min/mile pace. Derek did great, especially for someone who just ran his first 15k last weekend! He is already thinking about his next race. I smell a 10k in his very near future. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I proudly wore my new Gasparilla Marathon tech tee for the run.

Love that blue!

Derek proclaimed his desire for waffle during the run, but I knew I was out of eggs. Once back in the apartment I did a quick google search for vegan waffles and found a simple ‘Naked Vegan Waffles’ recipe.

The recipe made a TON! Looks like I’ll have loads of left over waffles to enjoy in the next couple of weeks.

Derek made a delicious strawberry and peach topping for the waffles using fresh strawberries, a peach, and strawberry jam that he heated up in the microwave.

I finished mine off with some almond butter and cocoa nibs

Nom Nom Nom

I’m running late!

Derek and I still have to go all the way to Disney to pick up our volunteer packets for the Princess half tomorrow before we meet up with a few of my favorite bloggers! Better get a move on!

Have a great weekend!

That sounds like SUCH a perfect morning. Can it get much better than that? Methinks not. ๐Ÿ˜€

I think it’s so cool that you’ve inspired Derek to take up running!

Awesome run! I’m so jealous of your warm weather! It’s 28 here! I think the cold is killing my knees!
Oooh your waffles look tasty! Have a great day!

You’re so lucky to have a support system/running buddy in Derek! My bf is a couch potato. He’s proud of what I do, but just doesn’t want to join in ๐Ÿ™‚

15 Lauren @ A Fit Foodie March 6, 2010 at 1:18 pm

Everything looks DELISH! Awesome run! I would love for my hubby to run with me but he just truly doesn’t enjoy it… way to go Derek for running! And for you to have a constant running buddy.

I saw some vegan pancakes the other day that looked simply awful, so when this was titled Vegan Waffles, I was really expecting a similar disgusting looking dish. To my surprise, these waffles look amazing. <3

17 Jes March 6, 2010 at 1:42 pm

Oooo those look so delicious! Especially with the topping!

18 Ashley March 6, 2010 at 1:58 pm

I hate when I don’t have eggs for pancakes/waffles. That’s why I keep vegan egg-replacers just incase. That way I can still have my buckwheat eats.

Looked delicious though!

Oh, thank you for the link to the recipe!!! Have fun volunteering!

Looks like you have really gotten Derek into running! I’m so impressed that he got up at 6:30 on a Saturday to run with you.

Enjoy volunteering – I volunteered at the NYC marathon last year and loved it!

21 missyrayn March 6, 2010 at 2:36 pm

I love when race shirts are tech t’s.

And those waffles and that topping looks amazing!

22 Run Sarah March 6, 2010 at 2:38 pm

Love the idea of making a homemade fruit sauce, major yum!

23 Travel Eat Love March 6, 2010 at 3:24 pm

Mmmm love how bright and yummy the fruit looks! Have fun at the blogger meet up!
