We’ve heard a lot about carbo loading for races but for people who want to lose weight… protein loading? Well, not really. It’s just that weight watches tend to stay away from carbs. There are popular diets like Southbeach and Atkin’s where they literally take out all the carbs and pack so much protein in the meal that some people I know actually had trouble with their kidneys after.
Today, I prepared my breakfast which consisted of a lot of protein. 4 pcs cinnamon french toast, smoked sausage and scrambled eggs.
How to prepare
1 large egg (scrambled)
2 slices of medium sized whole wheat bread
1/2 tbsp milk (can be non-fat)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp butter (or butter substitute)
How to cook:
Whisk together the large egg, milk and salt. Then place the egg mixture onto a plate. Put slices of the whole bread on the plate, allowing it to absorb the egg mixture. Wait 2-3 minutes then turn.
While allowing the bread to soak the egg mixture, preheat your non-stick pan on med-low heat and place one 1tsp of butter, making sure that the butter covers the pan evenly.
Before putting the soaked whole wheat bread slices, sprinkle it with ground cinnamon on top. Then place on the pan making sure the side with cinnamon is face down on the pan. Allow to cook for 2 minutes on one side, then before turning over, sprinkle the top again with ground cinnamon.
