Make your butter french toast better

French toast is a popular and healthy breakfast choice. A classic french toast includes carbs from the flour, proteins from the eggs, and milk fat and butter. Since it is made primarily of white bread (refined wheat flour), it is high in calories, simple carbs, and sugar. So it qualifies low on the food score, making it a poor breakfast option for weight loss and hyperglycemia.

How to minimise the glucose spike from french toast
• Consider replacing refined flour bread with other no-carb or low-carb options made using almond flour or coconut flour.
• Try increasing protein content in the form of extra eggs (2 eggs instead of 1). Additional protein will change the GI of the meal and help stabilise the spikes.
• Calories from table sugar can be avoided by considering alternate sugar options or plant-based sweeteners like stevia.

You can also make your French toast healthier by switching up the toppings you add. Opt for a savoury french toast instead of a sweet one to manage your glucose spike. Such modifications will reduce your favourite food’s sugar content and glycemic load.
