Bollywood diva Shilpa Shetty is a fitness icon for millions, but never has the actor vouched for crash dieting or starving. She eats to her heart’s content and knows how to strike a balance between her diet and indulgences. She has time and again professed her love for breakfast on social media, calling herself the true ‘breakfast gal’. Her day starts with a glass of water, and some green juice, and after that she likes to have something homemade, healthy and filling. Remember the time when she packed some idlis for her early morning shoot? Now, in her latest Instagram story, the ‘breakfast girl’ told us her secret of making some healthy French toast.
French toasts are a beloved breakfast food across the globe. Here, slices of bread are often soaked in eggs, milk or cream and pan-fried. Giving the bread a sweet, brown, and crusty exterior. Many like to spruce up their French toast further by adding chocolate sauce or spread, syrup, fruits and whipped cream. While these sugary goods do make French toast more decadent, they also add to the calories. Since breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, you may want to cut back on a few calories, especially if you are planning to lose some weight.
Shilpa ate her French toast with a spoon of maple syrup, and no sugar hazelnut spread. Maple syrup is one of the best, natural alternatives to sugar. That you can include in your diet. It is filled with antioxidants that are good for your heart, skin, and overall health, and not just empty calories. And if you like a bit of chocolate on your French toast, go sugar-free there too just like Shilpa. Alternatively, you can also sprinkle some crushed dark chocolate on top. It is going to taste heavenly and enable you to start your day on a guilt-free note.
