Pancakes and French Toast…Before
A continuing series; My pursuit of how to Eat to Lose Weight.
I have always enjoyed these two weekend breakfasts. I’m not sure if it was their taste, texture or the peanut butter and syrup I slather on top of them, regardless they are weight loss killers. A small single pancake can break the bank at 150-250 Calories and that is without the fixings. I need a lot of those little pancakes to feel satisfied, so I could easily rack up a 850-1000 Calorie meal! In my house we use Challah or Egg bread for our french toast and a satisfying meal also weighs in around the 750-1000 Calorie range.
Hacked! Light Raisin Bread French Toast.
I was not willing to give up on my favorite weekend breakfast so I started hacking. Early on I decided to drop the pancakes because I found the french toast more satisfying and more hackable. Soon I discovered a Light Raisin Bread made by Country Kitchen that is 50 Calories a slice and when you prepare it french toast style it’s delicious and satisfying. I cook up 5 slices (50 Cal. each or 250 Cal. for 5) with two eggs (50 Cal each or 100 Cal. for two) and my favorite fixings (a thin layer of crunch peanut butter and a drizzle of Vermont maple syrup) and I am only at 546 Calories. They taste so good that even my wife and daughter have converted. So by making a small shift in my eating I have saved anywhere from 204 to 454 Calories per meal! Now I love my new French Toast even more than the original style.
