A chocolate glazed donut that is gluten-free, but still light, fluffy and oh so delicious! I hope you guys like pictures, because you are about to get hit with a lot of them. If you aren’t into weight lifting, you’re probably not aware of the new “dead lifts and donuts” trend. Who would of ever thought those two things would go together, am I right? Well apparently it’s a thing, so much so that weight lifters are actually eating donuts while dead lifting. That seems a bit over zealous to me, but hey, who am I to judge?
