My chocolate protein waffle and I exchanged dirty secrets over the breakfast table this morning. I went first, yet he was reluctant to share. It took time and patience but eventually he opened up about his deepest secret. He told me to look past his sweet, dreamy swirls of mint cream, coconut ‘cream cheese’ cream, and cocoa coconut almond butter (Barney Butter brand). I tried but could only see his crisp, waffley exterior. He demanded I dig deeper than the cacao nibs and unsweetened shredded coconut. Again, I could only see the waffle for his soft, cocoa center. He exclaimed that I was nearing his secret, but not quite there. I approached him closer, anticipating the reveal. “You can tell me,” I whispered into his waffle ear. Finally, he caved. “The reason I’m moist is….” Yes??? “I’m made of cauliflower.”

- 1 cup steamed cauliflower
- 1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein
