All natural waffles and pancakes for breakfast (giveaway)

“Since I am a Mom, working outside of home, it is really hard to manage a healthy breakfast in the morning”. This is how I started writing this post. Then stopped and realized that when I was a stay at home Mom, it was not easier. If anything, it was harder. Home made breakfasts plus home made lunch with a home made dinner could easily take up my entire day. This is where all natural frozen foods come to help.

You know, how particular I am about ingredients, therefore I only trust a few brands. Van’s frozen Whole Grain waffles use only natural ingredients. Each waffle offers six grams of fiber per serving.

Van’s waffles and pancakes never contain high-fructose corn syrup, monoglycerides, hydrogenated oils, bleached flour, aluminum based baking powder, artificial flavors or colors.


I use Van’s waffles for a quick breakfast or serve them with an omelet and some fruit to create a wholesome breakfast. Van’s waffles are perfect for a snack or even to compliment a lunch or a dinner.

I love that I don’t have to drive to a whole foods market to pick up a box of Van’s waffles since they are readily available at multiple retailers, including Kroger and Publix nearby. You can find Van’s at a grocery store near you using a store locator.

Van’s started back in the 1970s when the Van Dam family opened a Van’s restaurant in Southern California. In the late 1980s, the Van Dam family decided it was time to bring their creations to a whole new group of customers—right in their local grocery stores.

Since then, Van’s has evolved from a single waffle restaurant to one of the country’s most beloved frozen waffle and breakfast companies. Van’s products are cooked in small, minimally processed batches with always-fresh ingredients. Van’s offer wheat/gluten free waffles, organic, mini, and 8 Whole Grain varieties.

    I love eating breakfast foods, and although I like waffles, I have cut out preservatives and artificial food coloring so most frozen foods aren’t an option anymore. I also love whole grain healthy foods, and I am excited to pick up a box or two of these next time I hit the grocery store!

    A weekday breakfast is usally a bowl of cereal or a frozen waffle. Not much time before school to prepare.

    My weekday breakfasts are practical quick affairs. Usually a half a cup of brand cereal with 1% milk and a half cup of low fat cottage cheese. Its filling and nourishing.

    we are always running late – so fruit (bananas & apples) are easy to eat in the car. Toast if we actually have a few minutes.
