This waffle turned out to be a really great texture– like warm cookie dough 🍪. And I combined with my protein ice cream 🍦 fluff for a macro-friendly waffles n cream for dinner combo
- Measure out 29g of Lions Pack vanilla Cake batter Muffin mix (I think you could use any type of Muffin mix that is a “just add water” mix)
- 7g of coconut flour
- Mix it with just enough water to make into a pudding type of batter
- Cook in waffle maker!
Macros for the waffle: 7p, 15.5c, 1.5f (104kcal)
Ice cream recipe:
- 1 scoop protein powder
- 2c ice

- Blend it all well until fluffy & creamy 🙂
Macros for ice cream: 24p, 2.8c, 1.5 f (120kcal)
Bonus fluff from today’s eats: the Lions Pack Oreo cookie dough is really good– great macros too. And the mini-me’s I find at Kroger- GF rice cakes covered with chocolate 🍫
Most of my protein macros do come from my ice cream! One thing I’ve learned with IIFYM is that the source of protein/carbs/fats doesn’t matter. The point is to use foods you like to hit your macro goals each day.
Some people have a fiber goal. I get fiber goals as well from my coach (usually 20-30grams) but I actually tend to go over! So, for me, I have been finding ways to include more “fun” carbs & cut down the Amt of veggies i use. I used to down about 5-8lbs of fibrous veggies a day, and am now back to a lower amt– like 2-3lbs. (A couple plates of veggies a day– I like to use mushrooms, zucchini, and lettuce).
Too much fiber also causes issues:
“… if your fiber intake exceeds your daily recommendation or if you suddenly start eating too much fiber, it can result in abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, or even constipation.” – source
I think not getting enough fiber is more common, but I did notice some of the above issues when my fiber was really high. Just didn’t occur to me it was from too much fiber until my coach pointed it out.
