You Are What You…Think?

Is it Thursday?

I’m all mixed up on my days.  Vacations will always do that to ya I guess…especially when you come back mid-week versus Sunday night.

But I’m not complaining!

If you follow me on Instagram or on Twitter, you probably saw my delicious dessert.  

Somehow, despite having ice cream last night, I woke up wanting yogurt!  Actually, I woke up wanting one thing and one thing only: a waffle stack!

It’s been far too long since I’ve had one of these (like an entire week!).

I bought a fresh batch of strawberries yesterday (hooray for a semi-well stocked fridge again!) which were just begging to be used as part of this!

I toasted up 2 Trader Joe’s Multigrain Waffles…

then did the usual…

I carefully layered each waffle with:

  • 0% Plain Greek Yogurt + 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Sliced strawberries
  • Natural peanut butter (still can’t bring myself to spend the big bucks on a new jar of sunflower seed butter…but boy do I miss it…)

Then all that’s left to do is dig in!

And dig in I did :)

A pretty great way to kick off a Thursday!

And with that, I’ll leave you with an interesting infographic I found on Pinterest about perception of health…kind of interesting!

How Healthy We Think We Eat Perception (source)

  • Cat @ Breakfast to Bed

    that’s gorgeous. really.

    • Cait

      :) Thanks Cat!

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More

    You always have the prettiest breakfast photos. :)

    And that infographic is really interesting…

    • Cait

      Aw thank you! And agreed! I guess perception has a lot more to do with it than we realize!

  • Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    I can’t believe that McDonalds’ chicken salad is the least caloric! AND 1/5 people think diet soda is healthy?! Craziness.

    • Cait

      I know it’s nuts when you actually look at what people outside the healthy living world think and eat!

  • [New Balance] Nicole

    That is such a neat chart! Thanks for sharing!

    • Cait

      Of course! :)

  • Shannon ~ My Place In The Race

    Your breakfasts always look so fantastic!

    • Cait

      Thank you!

  • Jasper {crunchylittlebites}

    the discussion of health and peoples’ perception of food/nutrition will never cease to fascinate me, especially in today’s culture of highly processed food…the discussion of labels/marketing/”organics” … topics for discussion are endless. thanks for sharing

    • Cait

      I completely agree. And you’re more than welcome!

  • Maura @ My Healthy ‘Ohana

    Your waffle stack looks so yummy – I am loving strawberries right now :) The red and white in your photos is so pretty!

    • Cait

      I am too – they’re definitely at their peak! And thank you! :)

  • Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic

    Mmm those waffle stacks look so good! I haven’t tried mixing chia seeds with Greek yogurt yet – great idea!

    • Cait

      It’s a great way to eat yogurt – it makes it so thick! :) Let me know if you try it!

  • Lauren

    I haven’t seen the waffle stack in awhile and I’m so glad to see it back. :)

    • Cait

      Haha – it was good to have it back! It had been far too long :)

  • Kerry

    Really interesting infographic, thanks Cait! I’m going to have to try to find waffles in my local supermarket – those strawberries look so lovely and juicy! Sadly its still pretty cool in the UK so no lovely ripe berries for us

    • Cait

      Oh boo! You could maybe buy frozen strawberries?! They’re nearly just as good on waffles, it’s what I did in the winter :)
