Easy Healthy Recipes - French Toast

image.jpg

French toast is so versatile. It is great for families members with varying tastes. Go savory by topping toast with salt and pepper. Traditional with jelly or jam. Or super sweet with powdered sugar or maple syrup. Organic, pure Grade B maple syrup is a great alternative to sugar. It contains 54 antioxidants, many of which are also found in tea, berries, and broccoli! As always, serve with a balanced plate including lots of veggies, lean protein, and fruit. Today, our French Toast breakfast was rounded out with organic mixed nuts, Concord pears, and lots of steamed spinach sautéed with grass-fed butter, organic garlic, an sea salt. Add a few diced organic bell peppers for crunch!
