242kcal, 3-ingredient Gluten free Waffle (no protein powder) & High Carb Nutrition Experiment start

This waffle was πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ! Perfect texture – firm/crunchy exterior and soft interior!


 It’s a plain taste, so adding fruit on top is perfect! I added some applesauce (all I have at the moment. Ran out of blueberries) 

Recipe:

Mix:

  • 1/2cup plus 1/8th cup water
  • 30g Oat flour
  • 20g coconut flour
  • 1 egg

Cook 3-5min in greased waffle maker! Enjoy!

  • I had these after my long run today!


New nutrition experiment:

As I was running, I listened to an uplift nutrition podcast with Lacey Dunn and Dylan Baird and I highly recommend it! Both of them are in the Nutrition field (RD’s) and fitness field.  In addition to discussing a lot of the fad diets these days (Keto/paleo), Lacey Brought up the point of how the best distance runners have very high carb diets and less protein. I’ve been wanting to try this out (using less protein powder & more real foods), and this seemed to be the nudge I needed. Here is an article I read in runners world with “macro recommendations for runners” for more info (& to see how I set up mine below). 

  • I typically have been hitting 125-150g protein, 200-235ish carbs and 35-45g fat. And about 1700-2000kcals a day
  • So what I’m doing is setting up a new “macro experiment” in the my.macros app that is higher carb but same calories.

New ratios are 60%carb 20% protein 20%fat or 85g protein 255-300g carb 38g fat. If I go over those, I’m fine with that. These are my base guideline set. I don’t plan to be religious about hitting macros spot on, but will use these as a guide to see how higher carb works for me! πŸ™‚
I’ve changed these in my “current training plan” page and will update it accordingly!πŸ’• It’s funny how I change things each week- the last few weeks have been tweaking my workout plan and this week brings a nutrition change. If anything, I’m just learning my body and making modifications as I go to see if it works. The changes get smaller and smaller and I think they’ll eventually be honed to where I like them & get good results ☺️

Hope you all have a great day!
