It's National Waffle Day!

I don't know about you but when it comes to waffles, I actually prefer a heartier version to the traditional fluffy, sugary kind. So I've pulled together five beautiful recipes with a focus on paleo, gluten free and grain free, in the hopes of inspiring you today.

If you're hungry for more waffle recipes, Brit + Co. has 26 to share!


We found our favorite summer treat! It's organic, inexpensive, easy to make and deliciously refreshing. And the recipe has only ONE ingredient -- watermelon.

You'll just need 1/4 of a large organic watermelon.

Place the fruit in your Vitamix (note: don't add water). The key is the tamper -- the tamper is going to keep the watermelon blending.

Now pour the watermelon juice you just made into your popsicle mold. We used the Zoku Classic Pop Mold.

Makes 6 full-size popsicles.

And then you can enjoy some beautiful outdoor time while your popsicles are freezing.

Icy goodness!
