French toast is a really simple dish. It’s quick to prepare making it perfect to enjoy anytime of the week.

Ingredients, makes 2 servings

    Ive recently started dieting so I was wondering why you are using full fat options instead of fat free

      Hi Sam,

      I have written a blog on why you should avoid skinny products. Here’s the link http://www.ajlifestyle.com.au/?p=892

      I recommend that instead of dieting, consider a lifestyle change. That is what I offer my clients, they eat traditional whole foods with no food group restrictions and the results they are after are achieved and last. The food I recommend is food that you continue to eat for the rest of you life. It’s a really simple and enjoyable way of living and getting the results you’re after!

    Can I use a slice of pumpernickel bread?

    • Amanda says:

      Hi Nat,

      If the pumpernickel bread has been through the fermentation process like sourdough (some of them have but you will need to find out with the supplier) then yes. However, I’m not sure how well it will go with soaking up the egg mixture. The fermentation process gets rid of the phytic acid making the minerals able to be absorbed by the body.
