Protein French Toast with Berries

Just the thought of having french toast for breakfast makes me salivate. There's something about it that takes me back to my childhood.

When I stayed at my Aunty's home in South Africa, she'd spoil me and my cousins with our favourite breakfast. And french toast was the recipe I requested the most.

Years later, I still loved it but didn't make it because I didn't know how to make a healthy version. Until today. With just a few minor changes, you can turn this indulgent breakfast into a protein-rich meal to fuel you until lunch time. No sugary cravings and no guilty feeling!
