Nutritional values

One portion already provides 50 percent of our daily requirement of potassium and vitamins E and C. An optimal supply of this mineral has a positive effect on blood pressure. The two vitamins are cell protectors, as they neutralise damaging free radicals in the body.


The dish contains a quarter of the recommended amount of fibre that we should consume during the day. You can increase the content even more if you use wholemeal flour for the waffle dough; then possibly stir in 1 tablespoon of mineral water
.
If you want to do without this, replace the ham with salmon, which brings omega-3 fatty acids into play.
