I feel like each week bring about so many new revelations.
But, I also feel with each new lesson and revelation I've experienced, I've also held myself back.
Does that make sense?
For each growing moment I've had, I tend to overthink myself into holding back and not stepping into my full power....as a woman, as an empowered woman....heck, let's take a step back even further....as simply me.
So on these weeks where I feel like I'm walking the border between two "states" of being---empowered & holding back (Side note: At Carowinds, you can walk the line between North and South Carolina...and it's so cool!), it's easy to feel like I can't take care of myself....it's easy to say I won't eat healthy....it's easy to not post a waffle recipe.
But, then when have I ever taken the easy way out?
Okay okay, I'll admit I did have help with this recipe. I played with a Simple Mills mix.
A gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do to get things done.
For this experiment, which turned out amazing, I wanted to recreate some cornbread. And by recreating cornbread, I mean creating a recipe not using corn.
Because that sounds like a totally normal thing to do when making cornbread, right?
Like Rihanna sings, "Baby, this is what you came for."
Why no corn B?
Well, see I've had an intolerance to corn since 2015. Maybe because I ALOT of corn for the years prior to my 2015 food intolerance test. And by a lot of corn, I mean like bags of tortilla chips, taco shells, grits, polenta, hominy, and even corn in my cereal. And I ate cereal every freaking day.
Yeah, I had so much of a corn cereal problem, I had cases of that cereal shipped where I lived in SC. Not kidding. My old roomie will tell you the truth...she laughed every month it was delivered to our door.
Maybe that's why the sheer look of the box turns my stomach. I kinda overdid it. Good thing I have so many varieties of waffles to create...
How did I get the color? Turmeric. And turmeric's taste was undetectable to me (I hadn't really used turmeric until this year...I was put off by the smell), so if you're wigged out by the smell, don't be. Now, I eat it on almost everything...kinda makes me wonder why I freaked out for so many years about this spice. Hmmmm, maybe I should apply how I feel about turmeric now to how things in my life.
I topped this amazing ness with a blackberry jam I created from this post.
Since then, I've made it savory with scrambled eggs, black beans, guacamole, and salsa. I've also topped them tahini and cranberries.
I can go on and on...but then I'd spoil your own topping fun.
I'd love to see what you post, so share your posts using #whiskingoutsidethebox
