Most mornings I’m scrambling to get my kids up and ready for school and out the door that I forget to eat. It’s not that I’m sleeping in and rushing, but the crazy thing is that I get up early every morning!
So I’m up at 6:30am to get the first kid out the door by 7am, then get the next one up and out by 7:45am. My younger two go at 8:15am and I’m usually throwing food at them to get them to eat something for breakfast. When everyone is at school, I realize that I’m famished and I need to eat ASAP or I’ll be hangry if I don’t.
Speaking of hangry… are you familiar with this term? It’s the combination of the words hungry and angry. It happens to me every time I forget to eat. 😉 If you find yourself in the same boat as me, then I have an awesome breakfast recipe you will love!
This French Toast in a mug is such an easy breakfast for on-the-go! French toast was a breakfast staple when I was growing up. I still like to make it for my kids on weekends sometimes. But it’s a bit of work and not something I can feasibly make for my kids in the morning without losing my mind. 😉
This mug french toast is like comfort food meets healthy because it’s yummy french toast but uses egg whites instead of whole eggs to save some calories and add in more protein. So you get the comfort of the dish without all of the calories and fat.
AllWhites 100% liquid egg whites is my favorite way to replace eggs in recipes. It’s fat-free, cholesterol-free and low-calorie source of lean protein (5 grams of protein, 0 grams of fat and only 25 calories in each serving!). Each carton contains 100% real liquid egg whites, with half the calories of traditional whole eggs and less than 1% carbohydrate.
I also love adding AllWhites into my smoothies because they’re pasteurized and actually safer than traditional whole eggs. It’s such a great, versatile product to have on your refrigerator shelf. Especially when you have that busy morning and need a quick, healthy breakfast that will satisfy and make you happy!
Did I mentioned that there are only 170 calories in each mug (less if you use light bread) and 12 grams of protein? And that it literally takes a minute to cook? My best guess is that you will love this mug french toast recipe and make it again and again and again. You’re welcome! 😉
