Eats: French Toast7:35 PM
For Christmas, Kyle wanted me to make him French toast. He bought a special bread that I think was cinnamon raisin, and I made French toast for the very first time. I served it up with some yummy turkey bacon, and it was a delicious morning feast.
What you'll need:
-1 teaspoon sugar, optional
-Dash of cinnamon
-1 cup milk (I used Silk Vanilla)
-10 to 12 slices bread
-Butter for the pan
Mix eggs, milk & salt together in a bowl and add some cinnamon if you like it. When it's even, carefully dip the bread in the mixture, making sure to get both sides. Make sure you don't completely soak it or it will be soggy. Cook until both sides are slightly brown & serve with syrup!
I seriously didn't know how easy it was to make French toast. However, it's probably a good thing that I didn't make it until now because it is so delicious! Kyle and I have switched to a healthier diet now that the new year has started. We are cutting back on meats, as Kyle eats a lot of that at work, and I have never really been that big of a fan of it to begin with. My Dad would put ham in our mac & cheese because he had to have meat in every meal. That, plus five years at McDonald's has killed my taste for most meats, although I'll still eat it a few times a week. I have tried in the past to give up dairy, and I succeeded in switching to soy or almond milk, but nothing else. So far, vegan butter tastes the same, I don't mind soy yogurt, and I am testing out cheeses. I can't seem to give up eggs, so you'll see them on this blog. Lastly, we are trying gluten-free products. Since I have hypoglycemia, GF is good for a person like me. It is also supposed to help with digestive issues so we are trying it out. I am not one to waste, so I am using up the products I already have before trying new foods. You will see a lot of experimentation on this blog as far as food goes in the upcoming months, but I am sure to post recipes that can be easily substituted to use several different products.
Here's to a new year of healthy eating :)
