As I wrap up these recipes I’m legally “stealing” from Metabolic Cooking, I remind you that this is just a tidbit of what’s in the cookbook to be released Tuesday, April 5th, 2011. If you haven’t gotten on the invitation list …

We’ve already talked about Tuscan Chicken, Spicy Pork Chops, Blueberry Protein Pancakes and my all time favorite breakfast so far, Banana Split Oatmeal. If you haven’t seen those, click any of the links and be taken to the step by step how make those meals.
This is Chocolate French Toast. It’s a delicious, easy to make french toast recipe that will blow away all those boring dry oats in water with some protein powder. Not that there’s anything wrong with cooking such meals but at some point, even the best of us snap. We’ve driven insane or we drive our families insane with monotonous routine based planning. This offers a unique way to fake like you are stepping outside the lines and lightening up when in fact, you are just making better tasting, more creative meals.
Do you have to be a bodybuilder to enjoy these? Of course not. You don’t need to be a chef either. But there’s NO EXCUSES for not knowing what to make and there’s little to no reason to say you can’t cook. You really need to step outside the comfort zone and try at least one if not all the these meals. You will love them. You will want more. Excitement like this is hard to contain and it’s why I can bodybuild for twenty some years and not get bored. Because I’m always trying to make it challenging while sticking to what works in accordance with my goals.
Chocolate French Toast:
Makes 1 Serving
• 3 egg whites
• ½ scoop chocolate protein powder
• 2 slices whole wheat bread
• Drop of maple extracts
• Pinch of cinnamon powder
• Pinch of stevia
• Cooking spray
1. Lightly coat skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet on medium low heat. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl (except for bread,cinnamon and stevia)
2. Dip both sides of the bread into mixture until completely covered, soak bread for a few seconds to insure absorption.
3. Add slices to preheated skillet, and cook each side brown until golden brown.
4. Light sprinkle stevia and cinnamon.
You can use whatever artificial sweeter you want or in my case, the protein powder I used, has sucrose in it and so there was no real need to make it sweeter.
