French Toast

French Toast

Have you ever wondered why french toast has gotten such a bad rap? It’s just bread, eggs, and milk! The key to this and other similar breakfast foods (pancakes, waffles, etc.) is what you drizzle over them. If you make them with whole wheat bread and egg whites, and keep it to honey or pure …

Pepper Jack Breakfast Sandwich

Canon 004_small

One of the best things about cooking for the P90x fitness plan is that you learn how to substitute for oil and butter. This breakfast sandwich is a prime example: normally I’d butter the English muffin, but the softened nonfat pepper jack takes its place nicely!
