We all know Bobby Flay and his cooking as being synonymous with grilling, flavor, and burgers. But what does the renowned chef, TV star, and restaurateur actually cook and eat for himself?
Since he doesn’t believe in deprivation when recipe developing (bacon and butter still find a place on his table), his secret to staying healthy is using flavor (think rubs, relishes, and marinades) to transform lean proteins, whole grains, and fresh produce into crave-worthy meals. In Bobby Flay Fit, Bobby shares fitness tips and a look into his daily healthy routines, which, yes, sometimes includes waffles, including this spelt version with blueberry compote and lemon ricotta cream.
Making waffles with ingredients such as whole-wheat and spelt flour can be tricky; there is a fine line between light and fluffy and leaden and flat. "It took some research, but I think I figured out the perfect ratio of ingredients to produce one really amazing waffle: delicious and healthy," says Bobby. "Blueberries make every breakfast better, plus they are full of antioxidants. Finally, while there’s nothing fake about it, this whipped cream fake-out of part-skim ricotta will fool your taste buds, for sure."
