Heaven on Earth.
Believe me when I tell you.
This morning before breakfast, I stumbled upon a little article about how to incorporate more oats into your meals.
It's another rainy morning in Atlanta, as in a lot of places, and it had me wanting something different. Comfort food. Something different than my two eggs and turkey sausage. Maybe something sweet.
Pancakes? Waffles? Mmmm... French Toast? But I didn't want to break the diet-bank for the whole day so I was looking for a healthy spin on it.
Here's what I did:
*Warmed a bit of Smart Balance butter and a little olive olice on the stove
*Took two pieces (Only two. Restraint. Could easily have eaten more... ) of Nature's Own Double Fiber bread
*Made my egg mixture -- Two eggs, skim milk, a dash of vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg.
*I put one packet of instant oatmeal into a separate bowl
*After the pan was nice and hot, I rolled my bread in eggs then in the oats
*I let it cook until the oats became brown and crispy
*I sliced up a banana to top
*Cooked two pieces of turkey sausage for extra protein
*Topped toast and sausage with a little real maple syrup
OH MY GOD.
I didn't sleep well but this made my day. Wonderful warmth for a soul on this rainy, chilly day.
