French Toast Breakfast

Good Morning everyone! I hope this week has been off to a great start for y’all. I started my day with Gluten Free French Toast and egg whites – for the third day in a row! I don’t know why I’ve been on a French Toast kick this week but I just can’t get enough of it. I also find that with the combination of healthy carbs (whole-grain, gluten free toast & fruit), protein (eggs/egg whites) and fats (nut butter), this breakfast keeps me perfectly satisfied and energized till lunchtime. I use gluten-free bread since I’m gluten intolerant, but whole-grain bread will work just fine. And of course you can add any fruit you wish! The last couple of days, I’ve cooked up the remaining egg white batter and also had an egg on the side for some extra protein so feel free to add an extra egg and egg white on the side based on your hunger levels. The extra protein will certainly keep you satisfied for a while.
