This was a #throwbackthursday from my Instagram that is dedicated to any woman out there who might be just like me 14 years ago after I had my first baby.


-You might be overweight &
overwhelmed like I was.
-You might be feeling frustrated with your body while trying to figure out this new thing called motherhood.
-You might not know how to get back to your pre-baby weight.
**This message is to give you HOPE:
-Hope that you CAN feel better about your body.
-Hope that you CAN find time to workout if you really want to.
-Hope that you CAN feel strong & confident in your own skin.
-Hope that CAN eat better…even if you got in the habit of eating for two while pregnant.
I know how exactly how you might be feeling because I’ve been there with 4 different pregnancies where I gained around 60 lbs with every baby.
……
I also know how to overcome those struggles with the proper nutrition, portions, and 30 minute home workouts that actually get you results.
…..
So if you’re feeling a little hopeless, this message is for you that YOU CAN feel better NOW and even 14 years from now, like I do, if you invest a little time & money in your health. It’s not selfish to take care of yourself. You’ll be a better wife & mom when you do!

Love making breakfast for my family on Sunday morning. I like to make recipes “skinny” by adding healthier ingredients so here’s my skinny French Toast recipe:

 

SKINNY CINNAMON FRENCH TOAST


Ingredients:
Coconut oil or cooking spray
1 large Egg
1 Egg White
1/2 cup Almond Milk
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
3 slices Whole Wheat bread (I used Dave’s Killer Bread)
Maple Syrup for topping
___________

1.Heat a griddle or large pan on medium and lightly coat with coconut oil.

2.In a pie pan or shallow bowl combine the egg, egg white, cinnamon, vanilla and whisk until all is combined, don’t worry if the cinnamon clumps, just get as much smooth as you can.

3.Then dip (one at a time) the bread into the egg mixture letting it sit in the mixture on each side for half a minute to soak up all the eggy goodness. Once each side is coated hold over the pie pan so that any excess will drip off and then place on your hot griddle.

4.Let each side cook until golden brown before flipping it about 3 minutes. Don’t squish because you want them fluffy and delicious. Flip and repeat. Serve with maple syrup.

Enjoy! #kellifrancefood
