Although this got us on a donut kick 😉

Nothing beats starting our day with coffee and donuts.

mini donuts

Enjoyed a whole plate of protein pumpkin donuts.

Donuts are starting to become a standard meal, haha

curly parsnip fries

Enjoyed some parsnips fries. This time shredded them in the food processor, then baked in the oven. So good! They did not get as crispy as we hoped but still a fantastic side for dinner.

Enjoyed some perfect fit protein waffles made with blue hubbard squash.

Here is what we did:

  • 4 eggs

Topped our waffles with some goat kefir and cinnamon. Waffle cereal anyone?? haha These were perfect, hit the spot for us.
