Kashi Go Lean Waffles - Original 7 Grain
I love Kashi Go Lean Crunch! Cereal, so when I saw these waffles at a local grocery store, I just had to investigate further. A quick glance at the nutrition facts revealed that these waffles contain 170 calories with 6 grams of fiber, 8 grams of protein, and only 3 grams of fat--and that's for two waffles! I was intrigued from a weight loss perspective (I needed to drop about 5 pounds at the time), as well as an athletic perspective (as a powerlifter I need a little extra protein), so I decided to give it a try.
Since I'm mostly a purist, I ate these straight from the toaster with no butter, syrup, or other topping. They have a delicious crispiness and a delightful, light sweetness (with only 4 grams of sugar) that makes them perfect for breakfast or a post-workout snack. When I'm feeling adventurous, I'll spread them with natural peanut butter and raisins (which really curbs the need for something sweet in the morning), or I'll top them with fat-free cottage cheese (the waffles have such a delicate flavor that they can be swayed in either a sweet or savory direction).
