Healthy French Toast
There's no need to give up some of your favorite foods in an effort to lose weight and keep it off. Here is one of my favorite weekend breakfast recipes that will still fit into your healthy eating plan.
You’ll see that all of the ingredients below are Diet Solution approved and completely healthy. How does it taste? Absolutely delicious. And that has been verified by my husband, my in-laws, my parents and several friends that have stayed at our house and enjoyed our Saturday morning ritual with us.
French Toast a la The Diet Solution
2 slices Sprouted Grain, Spelt or Rice bread (we’ve tried using all of them and they all work well)
2 whole eggs
1 TBSP butter
Maple Syrup or Apple Sauce (no sugar added)
Cinnamon to taste
Scramble the 2 eggs in a bowl large enough to fit one slice of bread. Dip the bread and make sure it is coated generously with the egg mixture. Heat a pan (on low to medium) large enough for 1 or 2 slices of bread and add the butter. Once the butter is melted in the pan (if it begins to turn brown, you have the heat up too high) add the bread coated with the egg mixture. Cook the bread on each side for 3-4 minutes covered (I find that covering the pan cooks the egg more evenly but you can cook it uncovered as well). Serve with maple syrup (1 tsp per slice is more than enough) or topped with apple sauce and cinnamon (that’s how I like mine.)
Is this a cheat meal or a meal “off” of my usual healthy eating? Not at all. All of the ingredients are wholesome and natural and fit right into mine (and your) healthy eating plan. If you need or want a bit more protein with your breakfast, you can add a piece of bacon, breakfast sausage or even another egg on the side.
Enjoy your French Toast!
