Recipe Radar: Egg White French Toast

Egg White French Toast

Chris Colucci recently interviewed diet coach Tad Inoue for FigureAthlete.com. Inoue provided a recipe for egg white French toast from The Diet Recipe Book–and it is absolutely delicious, so I thought I’d share it. Warning: This is a low-car recipe that doesn’t actually involve bread.

Take one cup of egg whites, stir in some cinnamon to taste and a touch of vanilla extract. Mix all the ingredients together, pour into a non-stick skillet, and cook it like a regular omelet.

Once plated, you can give it a little bit of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spray, add a tad more cinnamon, one or two tablespoons of sugar-free syrup, and top with sliced fresh strawberries.

“It tastes like there’s carbs in it, but there’s really almost none. It’s just egg whites and cinnamon. It smells like you’re making French toast in the house,” Inoue promises. “It’s all protein, with maybe 5 grams of carbs, depending on how many strawberries you put on it.”

When I tried this recipe myself, I didn’t have any strawberries so I added a tablespoon of slivered almonds. I am sure it was equally delicious.

Why does this matter to you? Because this is a great breakfast for your non-workout days when you need to cut back on carbs.
