IMG_20170723_103537_243

This French Toast is my new favorite! It has a chewy, nutty, satisfying texture that is perfectly combined with soft and sweet peaches. I added Greek yogurt for it’s thick-creamy texture, protein, and calcium content!

After tasting this, you will not want to go back to the sugar-loaded, full-of-fat, empty-in-nutrients “traditional” French Toast.

Best of all, this French Toast has amazing flavors that are sure to delight!

  1. Whisk: egg whites, vanilla extract, cinnamon, tablespoon of coconut milk, and a pinch of Kosher salt. 20170723_105122
  2. Honey-Peach Syrup- In a small sauce pan, add: frozen peaches, water, honey, and cinnamon. Bring up to a boil, and let it simmer until it thickens. 20170723_105620
  3. Dip your 12 grain bread slices into the egg white mixture. Heat up a small sauce pan, and add a tiny bit of butter *No more than one tablespoon.
  4. Brown your bread slices, so that it has crispy crispy-buttery edges. You can finish them in the oven to make sure that the egg whites are completely cooked, if you’d like. It shouldn’t take more than ten minutes, depending on how thick your bread slices are. Plate your French Toast, don’t forget the dollop of Greek Yogurt!wink

All you need is:                                                                                                Yield: Approx. 1 cup

  • A blender
  • 2 ripe avocados *they should be firm to the touch, but not hard.
  • The juice from 2-3 fresh limes
  • Fresh cilantro *I used two sprigs- if you don’t like cilantro, substitute with parsley

  • Roasted garlic clove
  • Pinch of Kosher salt

Simply blend all of your ingredients and adjust to your taste and desired consistency.

*Tip! There is no need to add any cream, avocados are naturally creamy.

Have you heard that avocados are “the good kind of fat”?

This is because they contain monounsaturated fatty acids, which studies show helps lower cholesterol levels.

Avocados are also nutrient-dense, containing around 20 vitamins and minerals! These vitamins and minerals help give you healthy eyes, skin, hair, as well as many other benefits….

What does sour cream do for you?

When you organize your ingredients, every meal is quick and easy to prepare:

  3. Assemble your scrumptious breakfast sandwiches! *Note: These sandwiches are very filling; make one for yourself and wait to see if you’re still hungry.
