Low Fat French ToastWritten by Josie Anderson
French toast was one of my favorite breakfast foods when I was little. Dieting can be hard, especially when you can not enjoy many of foods that you love. Here is a twist on traditional french toast recipe, that once used to be high in fat. With just a few modifications you can turn french toast into a healthy food. I make this for my husband and he can not even tell that this is a low fat version. It's also been tested on Marines in my house and they loved it. So share it with your family and turn breakfast into a healthy meal.
- 1 large egg - 2 egg whites - 1 cup skim milk (or 1%) - 1 tsp vanilla extract - 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon - 1 loaf of white bread
