• Butterscotch French Toast

    January 3, 2011

    Good morning and happy Monday! 😎

    My To Do list for the week is insane, so I’m off to a running start this morning. The pug, however, woke up, ate breakfast, and went back to sleep on the couch. Oh, how I wish I had his life.

    If you didn’t read CNC over the weekend, here are some posts to catch you up!

    Workout

    I can’t believe the marathon is just 13 days away!! 😯 I’m so ready to run it, but, at the same time, not ready! Excited, but nervous, ya know?

    I’m still in taper mode, so here’s this week’s schedule from our TNT coach:

    • Monday: Easy 30 minute run
    • Tuesday: Easy 30 minute cardio
    • Wednesday: Easy 25 minute run
    • Thursday: Easy 20 minute cardio
    • Friday: Off
    • Saturday: 8 miles

    After breakfast, I’m off to run an easy 3 miles around the neighborhood. It’s actually fairly warm and sunny outside this morning, so I might as well take advantage of the nice weather. I’m sure there will be plenty of treadmill running this winter.

    Breakfast

    Mmm… Butterscotch French Toast! Seriously, who doesn’t love French toast? Or butterscotch for that matter?

    However, I realize that most people don’t love the calories, fat, and sugar in such an indulgent breakfast, but a little butterscotch extract goes a long way!

    Butterscotch French Toast

    Makes 2 servings

    Ingredients:

    • 4 slices of whole-grain bread
    • 1/3 cup liquid egg whites
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • 2 tsp butterscotch extract

    Directions:

    • Whisk ingredients (minus the bread) together in a large mixing bowl.
    • Heat pan (or griddle) over medium heat; coat with non-stick cooking spray.
    • Coat slices of bread with the mixture and place in the pan/griddle.
    • Cook each piece for 2-3 minutes and then flip. Cook on the other side for about 1-2 minutes, until golden brown.
    • Remove from pan and serve with your favorite toppings. (I spread almond butter on top of mine.)

    On the side, I had half of a pink grapefruit.

    Question of the Day

    What are your fitness goals for the year?

    Mine are to run a marathon, go to Body Pump at least once a week, and run 4 half marathons (one per season). That last goal is new! 😀
