3 Healthy Twists on Indulgent Breakfast Food
- French Toast
Whisk together one egg, a dash of vanilla, cinnamon, a pinch of sugar, and a splash of almond milk (very technical, I know.)
Take two slices of Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Bread (or whatever whole wheat bread you’ve got), and dip them into the mixture one at a time so that both slices are fully covered.
Put the pan on medium heat, add a teaspoon of olive oil. Place the slices of bread on the pan and finish when each side is golden brown.
For healthy toppings try fresh fruit, walnuts, low fat butter, or even some reduced sugar maple syrup.
What you want: flavorful, delightful, and filling pancakes that will take your hangover and cravings away.
Using one cleaned sweet potato, place a few slits along the potato and microwave for 7 minutes. After the sweet potato is cooked and cooled enough to work with, take it out of the skin and mash in a medium sized bowl.
After mashing the sweet potato, add two eggs and two tablespoons of peanut butter into the bowl and stir.
Add oil to a pan at medium heat and cook the pancakes to just browned on either side. (Warning: don’t make the pancakes too thick or they will not cook in the middle!)
In a separate bowl mix together ½ cup of plain Greek yogurt, a tablespoon of honey, and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Once all mixed together, top your pancakes with this mixture to add a light finish to your protein-packed meal.
What you want: That salty bit of eggs, bread, and meat that makes you feel like you’re actually going to make it through the day.
Place a teaspoon of oil in a pan on medium-high heat. Place two slices roasted turkey deli meat on the pan until golden brown. Once finished, take the meat out of the pan and put it on a plate.
Next, whisk together ¼ cup of egg whites, salt, pepper and a dash of almond milk. In the same pan on medium heat, scramble the eggs.
Take a whole wheat English muffin (or whole wheat bread) cut it in half and place it in the toaster.
Combine all together on the muffin, (I suggest the order of bread, turkey, eggs, turkey, bread) Personally, I also like to add hot sauce or siracha to my healthy breakfast sandwiches for extra flavor.
