Everyone likes french toast, especially after a good workout! It’s also a good portable food for lunch or snack. Add a little maple syrup in a container so kids can dunk their french toast. It also packs a lot of goodness:
- Whole eggs are rich in protein, vitamins and minerals
- 1 whole egg contains approximately 6 to 7 grams of protein
- Eggs are a great source of Vitamin B2, B12, A and E, iron and zinc
For a savory version of french toast see our note below the recipe.
