Egg & Avocado Recovery Wafflewich

I don’t remember exactly the first time that I tried an egg wafflewich…aka, an egg waffle sandwich but I am pretty sure it was after a long run and I know for a fact that I devoured it.

There was something about the nooks and crannies of the waffle combined with the deliciousness of a freshly cooked egg that really made me go Oh. My. Yum!

Since then, I have played around with the way I’ve made the waffle.  I’ve created sweet potato versions, Thai inspired versions and now this gluten free turmeric and chili waffle with avocado and egg wafflewich.

Sounds like a mouthful and it is…a delicious and nutritious mouthful that is!  As I mentioned, the waffles are gluten free and are flavored with turmeric powder which as been known to aid in recovery.  Then there’s the Eggland’s Best eggs which are EGGSTRA delicious and nutritious.

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Eggland’s Best in partnership with Fit Approach but as always, all opinions are my own.

In fact, Eggland’s Best eggs have six times the Vitamin D compared to ordinary eggs plus they have 25% less saturated fat.  Not to mention that they are produced by hens that are fed by an all-vegetarian diet and never use any antibiotics, steroids or added hormones… which is what I call a win…a WAFFLEWICH WIN.

While it might be a mouth and handful, it’s actually pretty easy to make.  In fact, it requires less ingredients than you think despite being ridiculously delicious.
