Tasty Treats made healthier

Sophia McDermott Drysdale FIT

We can all enjoy some tasty treats. Over the years I have found ways to make not so  healthy food, much healthier by replacing some ingredients with healthier options, eliminating some ingredients that aren't necessary and changing the way food is cooked. 

So here is my healthier version of french toast. Firstly I use sprouted grain ezekiel bread that  is bursting with  so much more nutrients than normal processed white wheat bread that has zero nutrients. Secondly I cut out more of the not so good ingredients. This recipe is so simple and so easy.  Here's how.

French Toast with Summer  Fruit. (serves 2)

2 slices of sprouted ezekiel bread

1/3 cup of sweetened almond milk

1 egg

1/3 tsp vanilla essence

1 tsp coconut oil (for cooking)

2 cups of chopped fresh summer  fruit such as mixed berries, banana or mango

powdered sugar (optional)

Mix the egg with  almond milk and vanilla essence. Soak the bread in the mixture and add to a pan coated with coconut oil. Cook the toast on one side on medium heat for about 3 minutes and then flip cooking the other side for about 3 minutes.  Repeat with the other slice of bread. Chop up the fruit and serve on top of the toast and serve with a tiny sprinkle of powdered sugar.
