Since pancakes and french toast are the breakfasts my son requests the most, I try and make the healthiest versions possible. When I make items like these, I always try to pack them full of nutrition and one of my little favorite ways to do that is with wheat germ. That's right, you heard it. WHEAT GERM is what gives this French toast a slight crispiness.tags: breakfast Budget-Friendly rice, grains and breads fry griddle more
I always have a box of quick-cooking couscous in my pantry. Besides being inexpensive and healthy, it makes the perfect side dish or last minute meal because it cooks so quickly and can be flavored any way you like.
