Vegan French Toast for Meatless Monday!

No, this post has nothing to do with writing…not directly anyway. BUT after reading about yet another ground-beef recall after having breakfast, I remembered today is Meatless Monday! For those of you that are not Vegan or Vegetarian, like myself…do relax, this post is not meant to force-feed fruits and vegetables down your throat, it’s simply a reminder that we don’t need to eat meat every day of the week, at every meal. There are yummy and healthy substitutions for almost everything out there. 😉

I don’t drink milk or eat eggs, but I still like French Toast. And if you do too, you know that most if not all traditional recipes call for milk or heavy cream, eggs and lots of butter. Is this the only way to make French Toast? Nope! I have easy and healthy substitutes for your favorite French Toast recipe – substitute the milk and eggs with Almond Milk…add cinnamon or vanilla if desired and cook till the bread is browned on both sides. It’s really that easy. And it’s delicious. My kids – and the kiddo that slept-over last night didn’t know the difference.

Meatless Monday is not about punishing your taste buds by removing all your favorite foods from your meals…it’s about experiencing new things – giving your taste-buds something new to crave – while giving your body, the environment and factory animals a break for a day. It’s four days a month – try it, you might like it! 🙂

Happy Meatless Monday Everyone!

      😀 I like the edges of French Toast crunchy…and Almond Milk helps with that…you just have to be careful not to burn the bread! 🙂 I imagine a good Coconut Milk would be yummy too!
