When to Eat Protein Waffles
Waffles taste good at any time of the day. Having them in the morning, however, makes good nutritional sense. The high protein count will ensure that your body is anabolically primed for the day.
Eating 90 minutes before your workout will allow you to make maximal use of that extra protein when training while allowing time for the nutrients to settle. This is a guideline as prescribed in the Ripped & Shredded Program for guys who want to get shredded in a short amount of time.
Bodybuilding Protein Waffles Recipe
This waffle recipe is simplicity itself; all you need is a protein powder, egg whites or whole eggs and baking powder. In terms of protein powder, the ideal is to use a combination of both whey and casein powder.
How to Make Protein Waffles
Begin by turning on the waffle maker and allowing to heat up.
Place one scoop of protein powder into a bowl. Add half a teaspoon of baking powder. Then put in one whole egg-white. If you prefer your waffles to be extra fluffy use a whole egg instead. Now add water until you get a good batter consistency (around a quarter of a cup).
Now coat the bottom and top surfaces of the waffle maker with non-stick spray. You can now pour half of your batter onto the waffle maker. Lower the lid and cook the waffle until there is no more steam coming from the waffle maker (2-3 minutes).
Mix all the ingredients together until you have a good consistency.
