National Waffle Day with Van's Natural Foods & a Giveaway!

Thank you to Van's Natural Foods for sponsoring this post. 
 

Hey. Hey, you. Yea, you. Do you know what today is?

Waffles are like pancakes, but with abs, or syrup traps, depending on how you look at it. Either way, they're slightly better. But while you won't find me slaving away over a hot waffle iron very often (we don't get along), you will find me hanging around the toaster waiting for my waffles to pop up. Especially if they're my favoritest waffles ever! 


These Gluten Free Blueberry Waffles from Van's Natural Foods are amazing (just like everything else they offer)! They're made with whole grain brown rice flour & sweetened with fruit juice so you don't feel awful after devouring a whole stack of them. Unless you happen to use an entire small jug of pure maple syrup too, but that's a different story.

Of course you do still need at least a bit of that pure maple syrup. And some fresh blueberries. And some banana slices. And a fork. And a quiet place where no one can find you stuffing your face with delicious waffles. Okay, so the last one is optional, but if you have a family like mine, I highly suggest it. 



One lucky winner will receive coupons from Van's Natural Foods!

The giveaway will conclude on at 12:00 a.m. est on Friday 8/29/14.
