    Dietitian's Tip: To decrease calories and fat, use 4 egg whites instead of whole eggs.  Chopped almonds are a great substitute for pecans as well.

  • Ingredients:
    • 4 slices whole wheat or multigrain bread
    • 2 omega-3 eggs
    • 2 Tablespoons milk
    • ½ teaspoon vanilla
    • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
    • ½ cup chopped pecans
    • ½ cup sliced strawberries
  • Preparation:
  • 1.    In a large flat dish, thoroughly stir eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Soak bread in mixture for about 2 minutes on each side.

    2.    Coat each side of bread with chopped pecans.

    3.    Preheat pan or griddle on medium heat and coat with non-stick cooking spray.  Fry French toast until nicely browned on both sides, about 3-4 minutes.

    4.    Garnish with strawberries and serve immediately.
