friday favorites

Another week, gone!  NYC is still having some pretty extraordinary weather, and this week filled me with a renewed energy.  I really always forget how much the weather affects my mood, and then when Spring peeks its head out after an icky winter I just can’t stop smiling.  How was your week?  I always love to know a few of your favorite things!  xoxo

  1. Here’s a happy-maker: relatively guilt-free French toast! You see, Dave is in Chicago, visiting his fam, and at 8:45am (PST) he texted me a photo of Muddy Buddies (remember those? Chex covered in chocolate & powdered sugar? Um–YUM!). Well, I immediately wanted some, but I none of the ingredients…except powdered sugar. Well, and I also didn’t feel like eating straight up dessert for breakfast.

    So I invented a compromise: “Healthy” French Toast.

    1) You’ll need a skillet, sprayed with Pam or greased LIGHTLY with butter, pre-heated to medium, medium-high.

    Get some Sara Lee “Delightful” bread (only 45 cal per slice)…put the bread aside for dipping.

    Crack open some eggs, and separate them. You’ll need one egg white per slice.

    Add vanilla, to your taste. I had 3 eggwhites & about 1/2 tsp vanilla.

    Add skim or nonfat milk–about 1 tbsp for every 2 egg whites.

    Add cinnamon to taste, then stir the mixture together until well-blended.

  2. Oops!

    Dip bread in egg white mixture, soaking each side through.

    Place eggy bread into pan, flipping after about a minute.

    Put on plate, brush with butter or butter substitute (like Heart Healthy butter), then sprinkle w/ powdered sugar.

    Continue dipping, soaking, cooking, buttering, sugaring bread until you’ve made all your toasts. Serve with love!

    So there ya go–a nicely trimmed-down way to enjoy French Toast!
