Little Brother almost always eats the same breakfast: an everything bagel with butter and two scrambled eggs.
This morning he was looking for something different.
We checked the label. Two waffles have 31 carbs. Four waffles have 62, which is almost exactly the same as his bagel-and-eggs combo.
“I’ll have four waffles,” he decided.
I asked him if he wanted any eggs, reminding him that without them, he might find himself hungry later this morning.
“There’s protein in the waffles,” he said. “It comes from the chocolate chips.”
