Tasty Tuesday: Healthy French Toast

I recently read an article in Women’s Health Magazine that said women who consumed half their calories for the day in the morning lost more weight than women who consumed their largest meal for dinner. I normally have something light for breakfast with a cup of coffee, but if I had the option, I would choose french toast every time. Here is a healthier french toast recipe that will get you no where close to that 700 calorie mark. Bring on the bacon.

Healthy French Toast

Ingredients:
1 cup vanilla soy milk
2 large eggs
9 slices honey wheat bread (I used Nature’s Own)
olive oil
powdered sugar
cinnamon

In a shallow dish, combine the soy milk and eggs. Lightly dredge each slice in the egg mixture. Toss in a hot non-stick skillet with a tiny bit of olive oil to keep it from sticking. Dust with powdered sugar and cinnamon. Voila.
