Lean French toast bake

I have loved french toast ever since I first had it, but I have never made it at home because it just feels so time consuming. With it being winter and I am wanting everything warm and baked so I decided to give a 'french toast casserole' a try. Since I am on a weight cut I need it to be as macro friendly as possible which meant I need to cut the fat and add in some protein. Therefore,  I present you with a Lean French Toast Casserole.

Quick and easy #adulteggnog

As a kid it wasn't the winter holiday season until the tree went up. As an adult it isn't the winter the holiday season until you make, and consume, a traditional holiday beverage and add...wait for it...
Love to it!
Just kidding
Until you add liquor! Because liquor is just like love when the temperature is below 40 outside and you live in Texas. You poor, poor souls who have to deal with far lower temps.

Snacks I'm loving

Take a look at my current at home and at work snack situation. Get some ideas and give some a try. All easy to make and all ingredients are easy to find. My main goal for these snacks was to try to keep low fat, higher carb, and moderate to high protein. My days can get pretty busy so keep carbs and protein high help to keep me going with out sugar crashes. If you are on a low carb diet, make sure to adjust as needed-and you might want to skip the rice cakes.

So...I have an announcement.

Some news!

Holiday Rice dressing

This is the 2nd rice dressing I've posted, original here, but this one is just so good. My cooking has definitely gotten better in the past few years. Tastes way more like I remember it tasting from when I was younger. The best part it that the leftovers are even better.

Greenbean Casserole

Green bean casserole has been a staple for every holiday dinner since I can remember. Good thing it happens to be delicious and only gets better once you make it totally from scratch. Feel free to add the crunchy onions!
