French toast for breakfast

I will make it myself!! haha, , , I hope you are having a lovely, lovely weekend so far!

In the interests of fantasy breakfasts, I have decided to try and make french toast at home!! If you can’t get what you want out and about, create it!!

I have decided not to use bacon, as yummy as it is, it really isn’t that good for you!! Processed meats are linked to bowel cancer, and it is very fatty, a lot of calories, for not much nutritional benefit.

Finding whole wheat bread

Do you try to buy whole wheat bread though? I have found it hard to find in the supermarket. It would seem that MOST bread says on the ingredients ‘wheat flour’ which basically just means ‘white wheat flour’. I still haven’t found bread in the supermarket that is whole wheat, so I went to the bakery, and the best that THEY had was 60 % whole wheat and 40 % white flour. We have a lot to learn!!

So it is a beautiful day 🙂 The sun is so warm out there, and the birds are singing. Would you like some french toast for brunch? I bought maple syrup (organic). I hope it will be very yummy!!

I am following the recipe from Glenda’s page, cause she started all this! haha, not really, I have been craving Canadian french toast since Sydney, hehe.

What would you like?

It only takes 10 minutes to cook! Which is just as well, because I am starvin, marvin! How are you? xoxox

Results!

Well it was quite nice, I didn’t have passionfruit pulp, but the maple syrup was delicious. The taste of the whole wheat bread was yummy, , ,

    Haha Sarah. It’s not going to be as ‘delectable’ as cafe-style French toast because: 1. they use cream – not very dairy friendly. 2. they often use brioche as the ‘bread’, which is loaded with butter and of course made with purified white flour. 3. they normally smother it in syrup and serve with cream. To me it really comes down to what sits better in my stomach and doesn’t make me feel ill, and whether I can eat it on a regular basis. But at least you still found it to be ‘yummy’. That’s good enough for me 🙂

    Hi Glenda! I am so sorry if I sounded a bit unenthusiastic about your recipe. I surely didn’t mean to, I loved your recipe. This post came after one just the day before, where I had had such a disaster experience with French toast in a cafe, (with everything that you mentioned, dairy and a croissant) and I was linking to your post from there. It really is delicious! And you are right, it is so great that you can eat it regularly 🙂 I love it!

      I had read your previous post Sarah so I knew you had tried out the cafe version and felt crap after it. To me the most important part of dealing with intolerances is accepting that you simply can’t eat certain things anymore, or that the only way you can eat them is if you make them yourself. I absolutely adore pancakes, but I can’t go to my favourite pancake restaurant anymore (yes it really is a restaurant and not just a chain) because they will of course use dairy in their pancakes. But when I make them myself, sure I can’t top them with icecream, but I can enjoy them and not feel sick. Acceptance of the way things are is the most empowering thing that you can do for yourself. Make sure you keep looking after yourself 🙂

    Thanks Glenda 🙂 You are a sweetie 🙂

    Can you not eat any dairy at all? I remember learning in Principles of Nutrition that sometimes some people who are intolerant can stomach a small amount of dairy. I mean, I don’t go around ordering cows milk lattes, but sometimes I have a piece of cheese on a salad roll without too much ill effect. I believe it is because some people can produce some lactase, but not enough to tolerate things like milk.

    I like your thoughts though, that these things can be empowering 🙂 I kind of found my love of food and nutrition through cafe culture, (although I did have a background in science) so it can be hard sometimes to not indulge in cafe food and experience different food experiences!

    I am sorry you can’t go to your favourite pancake restaurant!! I bet you make delicious pancakes at home though 🙂 That is what I love about your French Toast recipe, it is so easy to make, but feels like really indulgent special weekend food. It is yummy!

    I hope you have a GREAT weekend. xoxox Sar xoxox
