Yes, I am a fan of the Whole30 elimination diet. And I need to completely revise my eating regime. A Sweet Potato waffle is going to be key to the success of my first Whole30 journey.
I have followed The Wahls Protocol, in the past, with great success. But, I have let my diet slip over the past few months and I am paying the price.
My MS symptoms have been steadily worsening and I have no choice but to give Whole30 a fair try. My first step in this process will be to replace bread in my diet with sweet potato waffles.
Sweet Potato Waffle Recipes
It is completely crazy, to have allowed my improving health to slip away because of my own complacency. It is very true that you don’t value your health until you lose it.
But, I have focussed once again. I have been evaluating new diet regimes and Whole30 look to be the most appropriate for me.
Of course, the Whole30 approach is an elimination diet. It is designed to help you eliminate the foods that aggravate your health. It is not a new dietery regime, either for wellness or weight loss.
If you feel that your health would benefit from a new eating pattern, you should consider a Paleo diet or the Wahls Protocol.
The Wahls Protocol is a form of paleolithic diet and I have tried this myself with quite good results.
However, all this talk of diet types is taking us away from the benefits of sweet potato waffles. Sweet Potato is a magical vegetable and is alleged to have many health benefits.
But, for me, there is only one main consideration. Sweet potatoes are easy to prepare, cook in only a few minutes and are gosh-darned delicious.
Sweet Potato & Oats Waffles
We already eat sweet potato quite regularly. so when I started seeing the waffle recipes, I was intrigued.
Strictly speaking, Oats should not be part of a Whole30 diet. But, while they are grains, they are fairly low in gluten.
