Breakfast

Eggy Bread

Eggy Bread

Eggy bread or French Toast as it’s also known is a firm favourite in our home.  This is my twist on the original, making it a high in protein, calcium and fibre boosting meal.

As Gracie is dairy-free, I don’t use milk to mix in with the eggs I use a secret ingredient… Vitasoy Coconut Milk!  Unlike the majority of other non-dairy forms of milk, this one doesn’t contain a rice filler in it.  Rice came up really high in Grace’s food intolerance testing and we’re yet to reintroduce it.

I also sneak in a sprinkle of Flaxseed meal.  Our Doctor recommended adding it into meals when we can as it’s high in dietary fibre and good for her bowels (please seek medical advice before making big changes to your child’s diet).
