Just looking at this colorful dish tells you that it’s full of a variety nutrients. There’s no need to look up every ingredient and track nutrients, if you’re eating the rainbow you know you’re getting the vitamins & minerals that your body needs.

The Pure Indiana Maple Syrup drizzled over this dish is truly the icing on the cake. We might be biased, as the sap was harvest from our parents woods. It’s boiled down in the “sugar shack” that is, ironically, a newly converted space where we once raised our 4-H animals.

This maple syrup is nothing but maple syrup. Check the label of a popular brand of pancake syrup at your local grocery and you’ll find that it has over TEN INGREDIENTS! Crazier yet, not an ounce of maple syrup. We highly, highly recommend, if you’re using maple syrup on this dish, to top your Weekend Waffles or in any other recipes, be sure to use pure maple syrup.
