In France, this tweaked-toast dish is referred to as pain perdu, or “lost bread.” No, it’s not a reference to early-morning scavenger hunts for a decent breakfast. French toast traditionally is made with day-old or slightly stale (i.e. “lost”) bread, which is ideal for soaking up the liquid mixture it’s dipped in. In this recipe, slices of firm, dense, sprouted-grain bread absorb the healthy egg white batter well, while cinnamon protein powder spikes the nutrition and flavor. Consider your new morning favorite found!
Heigh ho, heigh ho, it’s off to work you go – with no time for breakfast. If that’s your tune each morning, it’s time to do something nice for your body and mind: Eat that first meal of the day before you leave the house. Eating breakfast (and we’re talking about something more substantial than a cup of coffee laden with cream and sugar) gives you energy to kick-start your day. It’s also a great habit to start the New Year on the right foot!
What better way to celebrate a merry Christmas morning than with these festive gingerbread pancakes? The warm, spicy aroma of gingerbread batter cooking in coconut oil on the skillet may actually lure your children away from the tree and into the kitchen… so they can eat up and then go back to playing with all of their new loot.
It’s a good morning when pancakes are piled high on your plate, but it’s a great morning when they’re not just yummy but good for you, too! Skip the boxed mix and make them from scratch with a few simple, healthy ingredients, including rolled oats, a banana and a scoop of all-natural protein powder. Top your stack with chopped peaches and a fresh cream sauce that can be whipped up quicker than you can open a bottle of sugary syrup.
If you dread dry, bland diet breakfast food (fiber cereal, anyone?), these moist muffins will make mornings happy again. With just 136 calories and a single gram of fat, they’re a light, sweet start to the day or a deliciously guilt-free mid-morning snack. Bananas boost energy, while fiber-rich flaxseed fills you up, keeping those weight-loss efforts on track!
“‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, dieters were wishing that they’d eaten less than a mouse.”
Maybe that’s not quite how the poem goes, but many of us, by Christmas, wish that we’d done better in staying on our diets. If you’re dreaming of sugar plums but want a slim waist as well, we’ve got the tips you need to avoid gaining weight this year.
For a breakfast that squashes morning hunger and packs a potent protein punch, get crackin’ on this easy three-egg omelet. It’s loaded with fresh veggies, mozzarella cheese and 24 grams of pure protein from a top vegetarian source.
