Egg Toast Sara Mercury-StyleA Chapter by Sara Mercury
A guilt-free, sugar-free version of the real thing
If you love egg toast and are watching your waistline, here's the recipe I enjoy on mornings when I either run or do my other cardio exercises. Egg Toast combines whole grain, wheat bread (whole grains = good carbs) with a very healthy dose of protein found in Egg Beaters (that stuff without the yolks = bad cholesterol) that helps your body recover from a hard workout.
3 slices of Pepperidge Farm Thin Whole Wheat bread
6 tbsp Egg Beaters
1 tbsp Truvia (no calorie sweetener)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground allspice
Combine Egg Beaters with vanilla extract; mix well and pour over the bread slices in a shallow dish. Let the bread and egg mixture stand covered overnight in the refrigerator until all the egg mixture is absorbed into the bread. In a skillet or chef's pan on the hob set at medium heat, spray the skillet with a non-stick cooking spray and put the egg toast on to cook. Brown both sides, then remove from the skillet and onto a plate. Combine the spices and the Truvia in a shaker and dust the egg toast generously with the spices. Sit down with a cuppa and enjoy to your l'il heart's content!
And if you've worked out like me beforehand, you've already worked OFF more calories than you will get from this serving of egg toast!
No worries - you won't get fat from this recipe unless you eat it at large quantities and refuse to get up off your royal duff and work off the energy!
