Dietitian’s Top Pick: Van’s Organic Natural Waffles



Morning’s can without a doubt be the most hectic time of the day. Many times, I find myself with exactly enough time to get ready, and grab something to eat as I’m running out the door. In these cases, it is extremely hard to find something that is nutritious, has the ability to keep me full, AND is quick to prepare. Today’s Dietitian’s Top Pick does the trick! Van’s all-natural waffles have a NuVal score of 35, which is higher than other similar waffle brand, and have 20% of the daily-recommended amount of fiber in one serving. They are also very easy to spread some almond butter on, or top with sliced bananas!
