The Breakfast of Champions
Power French Toast
So I have to toot my horn a little bit, because I made an awesome breakfast! I have been eating oatmeal or egg whites most mornings and decided I needed to change it up a bit and it wasn't only delish but quick, easy, and most importantly a complete meal.
I had some sprouted bread in the fridge that probably would have hung out there until it was moldy. I soaked it in 100 % egg whites and a dash of vanilla until the bread was nice and saturated. I cooked the bread until it was golden brown and topped with frozen mixed berries for a punch of antioxidants, chia seeds for healthy fats, and sprinkled on some protein powder for a little twist on texture and to increase the protein in my meal. Oh and I cant forget a little dash of cinnamon to top it off.
It was great fuel for my workout today which consisted of a total body lift. Getting Strong!
