High Protein French Toast

Shakes are great – they’re convenient, quick and they do the job, but now and again, we might feel like a ‘real’ breakfast.  Any decent cook will be able to combine whey protein to any recipe, but here’s a very nice and easy little idea for a super breakfast!  It’s Protein Eggy Bread (or French Toast, of you prefer)!!

What You’ll Need

  • Eggs. 2 is usually enough for one breakfast, 3 if there are two of you – or you’re hungry!
  • A Loaf of Bread. 2 eggs should make anything from 2-5 slices, depending on the bread.  Personally, processed bread does the best job (it tends to be a little more absorbent), but any sliced bread will do the trick!
  • Whey Protein Powder.  One scoop of PhD Diet Whey.
  • Optional, but super-tasty, extras… Salt, Pepper, Cinnamon, maybe Maple Syrup or a couple of slices of lean bacon!

If you haven’t made Eggy Bread – it’s the easiest!!  Crack your eggs into a shallow dish and add a scoop of Diet Whey Protein.  Mix it up until it’s all one colour.

Put a frying pan on the stove, add a little of your favourite oil – spray or liquid – and let it heat.

Take a slice of bread and drop it into the eggy mixture, leaving for a minute, or so, to allow the egg/protein mixture to soak in a little.

Is your preference one side, or two?  One side egged is good for me, but many prefer the ‘doubler’.  If that’s you, flip the bread in the mixture and soak the other side.

Once good and soaked, pick up the wet bread with a fork and gently lay it in the frying pan.  Move it around quite a bit – you don’t want it to burn.  Flip it over and do the same.

For me, a light sprinkle of Himalayan Sea Salt is all it needs, but over BuzzFeed, they have some imaginative recipes (including Bacon & Chocolate!!) for your perfect, protein-packed, special breakfast!  Enjoy!

Whey Protein as Part of your Daily Diet

Whey protein for muscle gain, for weight loss, for all-round well-being!

Protein powder allows you to increase your protein intake without having to make significant changes to your diet. You can use protein powder to make protein-rich shakes or add it to your food to enhance its protein content. Adding protein powder to your foods can help you make sure you get enough protein to maintain or increase your lean muscle mass.

According to Paul Arciero, director of the Human Nutrition and Metabolism Lab at Skidmore College, “Whey is perhaps the most effective dietary strategy to aid weight loss because it is the most thermogenic food source you can eat. This means it burns the most calories after you eat it.”

This article over at shape.com goes on to say…

Add whey protein to meals and snacks, and your metabolism will stay high all day. (There are tons of creative ways to use protein powder in your food—and not just in smoothies.) What’s more, whey protein—and really any protein—will keep you feeling full for longer than other types of foods, says Arciero, which means you’ll likely snack less.​ (3 More Types of Protein Powder)

But there’s a third reason why whey protein is recommended for people trying to lose weight: “It’s the most effective food you can eat to help you turn on a process called protein synthesis, which starts the building of new muscle,” says Arciero. In layman’s terms, extra protein will ensure that you hold on to the muscle you already have—muscle mass is often a casualty during weight-loss attempts—and it will help you gain muscle more easily too. This is important because the more muscle you have, the more calories your body burns.
