Another tasty muscle recipe for you that’s low in Glycemic Load.
Miss French toast?
Now you can have this high-protein version to feed your hungry muscles and satisfy your taste buds.
Ideally, the type of bread to use is Rye kernel (pumpernickel) bread, which looks like this:
This type of bread is a favorite in Germany and should be a staple in your GLAD diet. It’s readily available all over the world so you shouldn’t have a problem getting your hands on it.
1 slice has a GL of 6, so you can enjoy 2 slices in one sitting to fill your belly without sending your blood sugar sky-high.
If you can’t buy pumpernickel locally, use Volkenbrot (wholemeal rye bread) for a GL of 7, or Wholemeal Rye Bread for a GL of 8.
Now the FUN part…
(1) Crack 1 egg into a bowl and whisk. Now add about 20 grams of whey protein isolate and mix together (I found banana whey was a GORGEOUS flavor for French toast). This is enough mixture for 2 slices.
(3) After it’s all mixed, take your bread and soak both sides in the sticky goo – 1 slice at a time and make sure it’s well saturated.
(4) Place it in your frying pan for a short while on both sides. Less than a minute will cook these to perfection – don’t overdo it.
(5) Remove and salt to taste (use a low-sodium salt).
