If you follow me on Instagram you’re well aware that I just spent the most incredible and amazing time in California and am now back in London. Jet lag is hitting me hard, so I’ve been slowly getting back into the groove of things while trying to not fall asleep on top of my laptop – which hasn’t been easy!
One of the things that usually gets me back on track is exercise. It wakes me up in the morning and gets me going, plus also makes me feel great about getting my sweat on after being confined to a flying metal tube for 10 straight hours. I’ve actually just got home from an intense boxing workout and am famished, so devouring a generous plate of this healthy french toast more than fits the bill and makes me feel fight those post-holiday blues as well.
After an intense workout, especially one that involves so much sweat and cardio as boxing, I like to make sure my meals have a good balance of protein and carbs to replenish and keep my body and muscles happy, not to mention that this healthy french toast keeps my taste buds happy as well!
My mother used to make french toast for my brothers and me whenever we were all home.
Being the youngest meant I was the last one to leave home, and I was always so happy when my brothers came to visit as it not only meant I got to see them, but it was also when we would all sit around our big dining table, having a breakfast fit for a king with my mother’s homemade french toast.
These are my take on them. A bit less added sugar, a bit more banana bread, a whole lot healthier. Banana bread healthy french toast, welcome to the world!
