Breakfast is touted as the most important meal of the day, and it's true; eating a light meal in the morning that provides vitamins and no more than 400 calories gives you energy necessary for functioning. Avoid eating sugary cereals, jams and preserves as they can cause your blood glucose level to rise. According to "The Quick & Easy Cookbook," you can still enjoy your favorite foods as long as you substitute unhealthy ingredients. French toast is the perfect breakfast food that can fill you up, and can be healthy by substituting the eggs with egg substitutes and using skim milk instead of whole milk.
Slice the french bread and cut a pocket into each slice, and set them aside. Mix 1/4 c. light cream cheese, 1/2 tsp. shredded orange peel, and 1 tsp. orange juice in a bowl. Use the teaspoon to stuff each pocket with the cream cheese mixture. In a separate bowl, mix 2 tbsp. skim milk with egg substitutes that equals 3 eggs. Put each bread slice in the mixture and allow it to soak on each side for 30 seconds. Spray a skillet or griddle with vegetable oil spray, and place it on the oven over medium heat. Cook each side of the bread for three to four minutes, or until the bread is a golden color.
