Seaspice Power Waffles Receip

I wish I could tell you that I’m the kind of mom who wakes up on Saturday mornings to put together Pinterest-worthy power breakfasts for my family. But I’m really more of a McDonald’s drive-thru kinda lady. Still, there are those of you out there who can whip up a beautiful, delicious, and healthy breakfast like it’s nothing.
