One of my favorite go to breakfasts… French Toast. There was a period in my journey where I ate a healthy stack like this for at least a month straight. I would lay in bed the night before and think up a flavor combination for the following day. Healthy, nutrient dense, and the perfect fuel to get my days going. I could not get enough of my French Toast. On Instagram, I was a self proclaimed “French Toast” Queen.
Here is my basic stack of goodness!
Strawberries & Cream were always a personal favorite of mine, can’t beat classic flavors!
