French Toast

French Toast

Breakfast is OBVIOUSLY the best meal of the day becauseÖ

  1. Itís the first meal of the day. Which means it can be as big as you want it to be and youíre probably not going to go over your macros. Itís basically like a free meal every day, if youíre tracking.
  2. Itís the only meal that is 100% acceptable to eat dessert as the main course. Cinnamon rolls? Donuts? I mean, come on!

Thereís a HUGE controversy in the breakfast world, though. Are you a waffles, pancakes or French toast person? There is clearly a time and place for them all, but stack them up with butter, syrup and the topping of your choice and itís sure to be the breakfast of your dreams.

French toast is one of the easiest ďnon-macro friendlyĒ meals to make completely macro-friendly without making too many changes.

How do you make protein packed French toast?

To make protein packed french toast, you basically follow the same principals as regular french toast. Begin by setting out a small to medium sized bowl, a frying pan or griddle and all the ingredients. First, heat up your griddle or pan and spray it lightly with zero-calorie cooking spray. In your bowl, combine the liquid egg whites, protein powder and cinnamon. *Iíve used a hand-held frother to mix and ensure that there are no clumps while creating a fluffier mixture. If you are feeling extra sweet, add a dash of liquid stevia, skinny syrup or vanilla/cake batter extract.

Once mixed, lightly dip the slice of bread into the egg white mixture and flip so both sides are completely coated. Carefully transfer the saturated bread to the frying pan or griddle and cook for about 3-5 minutes per side (depending on heat). Each side should be golden brown. Complete for the entire batch.

Plan Ahead!

French Toast freezes great! Make a huge batch and throw them all in the freezer. Whether you want one serving now and save some for later, these are an easy addition to a weekly meal prep.

Rather than spending extra money on the frozen protein pancakes or waffles in the store, make these up and freeze them. They’re also way more nutritious than the store bought french toast sticks packed with sugar. To re-heat, either put them in the toaster or microwave for about a minute, depending on the microwave.

One other great option is to cut the French toast into slices and TA-DA! FRENCH TOAST STICKS. Not only is it a ďhealthierĒ breakfast option, but a great grab and go for kidsÖ..or husbands.
