I found this article online at http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/womens-health/ and it made me think, 'Do I really care about my indulgent treat that I have once in a blue moon being full of fat?'. Life is about balance and really being indulgent - once in a blue moon - really isn't that bad... But if you make french toast once a week, maybe you should try this:
DONT GET FAT FRENCH TOAST
Why waste your kilojoule allowance on a chocolate croissant when you can put away a plate of this melt-in-the-mouth French toast? You get plenty of protein from eggs and light evaporated milk – and you’ll satisfy your cravings for a hot, filling breakfast.
1 large egg plus
1 large egg white
¾ can light evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
8 slices raisin bread
1 tsp caster sugar
In a wide dish, beat the egg and egg white with a fork until smooth. Stir in milk and vanilla essence.
Set a large frying pan over medium-high heat until hot (about two minutes). Remove pan from heat and coat with cooking spray; turn heat to medium and return pan to stove top.
Dip the bread into the egg mixture to saturate. Lift out, letting excess drip off before placing on pan. Cook until browned and cooked through (one to two minutes per side). Transfer to plates. Dust with sifted caster sugar.
