Multi-Grain Waffles

I'M BACK!! It's been so very long since I've taken time to update my blog, but at least I've been productive! I am now a mommy of 2, so life has become somewhat busier. However, my baby girl is now 8 weeks old, so I feel like I'm finally finding my way back into my kitchen again. Breakfast, as we all know, is a very important meal. So, I'm starting to collect more breakfast recipes, in order to keep things interesting. This is my new favorite go-to waffle recipe. I found it on my new favorite iPhone app- SparkRecipes. Although you have to purchase several items that you might not have on hand (ground flax seed and wheat germ), you'll be able to make OODLES of waffles once you buy them! It's a good idea to store the ground flax seed and wheat germ in the fridge for longevity. These babies are packed full of great nutrients and they're lowfat! I make them with my round waffle maker. The full recipe makes around 10 waffles, so I usually halve it for us. Enjoy with some real maple syrup and sliced fruit!

Makes 8-10 round waffles

1 3/4 c whole wheat flour
1/4 c oats
1/4 c ground flax seed (AKA flax seed meal- buy it in the flour section of your grocery store or
health food section)
1/4 c wheat germ
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
2 egg whites
1 3/4 cups milk
1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp applesauce
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine dry ingredients, through salt. Set aside. Combine wet ingredients and stir into dry ingredients. Bake in waffle iron until golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately or keep warm on a cooling rack in a 200 degree oven.

Consistent with "reverse positioning" understand the REAL Second coming would equate with The Matrix's Anti-Christ, the fake battle of good and evil which will come at the end.
I have spoken on this issue in years past. Understanding how they use the political environment to redefine people's value system, realize anyone who speaks of the old world and its ways will envoke hatred. So when/if the Anti-Christ comes along speaking of reverting back to what liberalism would consider repressed and immoral may be the only hope to salvage the god's favor and keep moving forward rather than begin the 1000 year clock. The fake Second Coming will feed into this political enviornment.
