Why are they called beauty waffles? Beta-carotene and fiber rich sweet potatoes combined with collagen protein build strong connective tissue and support hair skin and nails so you GLOW. These gluten-free gems are so dang tasty and the beautiful part is you can go savory or sweet depending on what you top them with. Go for avocado slices and a medium poached egg on top for a savory start to the day or a crown of low-glycemic berries – washed with Eat Cleaner, of course – with a sprinkle of chopped pistachios or walnuts for a sweeter take on the dish. If you’re going sweet, add a pinch of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract to the waffle recipe.
