5 Reasons to Switch to Whole Wheat Waffles
Waffles are quite possibly one of the pillars of human achievement. Nothing says, “Good morning” and “Get ready for the best day ever” like a fluffy, golden waffle. Waffles are a convenient, delicious and fast morning breakfast solution. Now, with Food For Life’s whole wheat waffles, they can also be a smart, healthy source of life changing nutrition. Here are five reasons to switch to Food For Life’s whole wheat waffles today.
1. Our Whole Wheat Waffles Have Sprouted Whole Grains and Legumes
You can find organic waffles but none with the quality of ingredients we use. Food For Life’s healthy waffles also contain sprouted whole grains and legumes, which are a much healthier alternative to white flour or whole grain flour waffles. The best part about sprouted whole grain waffles over any other waffle is that they are easier to digest, minerals and antioxidants are increased in absorption, and the vitamin C and vitamin B ingredient ratio is much higher.
2. Our Whole Wheat Waffles Are Nutritional
When you buy frozen waffles from the store, typical ingredients include, white flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, eggs, milk, vegetable oils and many other flavorings, gums, and preservatives. One of these preservatives might be Tertiary butylhydroquinone, or TBHQ, which has a controversial reputation.
TBHQ is evaluated by both the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and it is found that the concentration of TBHQ allowed in foods, an upper limit of 0.02% of the fat or oil content in foods, is safe to consume. In concentrations higher than this, TBHQ can cause adverse effect on the health. Various symptoms which can occur due to consuming high doses (1-4 g) of TBHQ include nausea and vomiting, collapse, delirium, and ringing sound in ears. It can also cause asthma, dermatitis, and rhinitis. It can also worsen the symptoms of ADHD and restlessness. There is no TBHQ in Food For Life’s waffles. In fact, there are no preservatives of any kind in our whole wheat waffles or any of our products.
Food For Life’s whole wheat waffles are not only preservative free, but they are nutritional. They are high in fiber and provide you with a complete protein from 100% vegetable sources, making these a great breakfast option for those with a vegan bread diet. These waffles contain 9 essential amino acids, 18 total, sprouted grains and legumes with the addition of organic cactus. This makes them a lower glycemic option, which is rare from a waffle and great for those looking for a diabetic breakfast.
3. Our Whole Wheat Waffles Can Help Prevent Illness
Food For Life wants to encourage people to invest in their health proactively. Although spending a little bit more on a healthier food choice seems prohibitive in the moment, when you look at the big picture, the cost of health care when fighting illness or disease is much higher. We truly believe in the adage, “If you think Wellness is expensive, try illness.“ Food For Life products are priced reasonably for the ingredients and production costs that it takes to make them. Sprouting is not easy, and baking sprouted grain products is different from the run of the mill baked goods you find on the shelves. The cost of a healthy meal that is also convenient trumps the cost of those medications people need when they end up with Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, etc.
4. Our Whole Waffles are Delicious!
These waffles are as yummy as they are nutritious and waffle fans will love them. There is nothing like them on the market currently. When you eat Food For Life whole wheat waffles, you’ll not only wake up every morning with an excited smile, but your whole body will maintain the spirit of that smile as the scrumptious taste and nutritional value goes with you the rest of the day.
