Weight Watchers Strawberry French Toast Review & Weight Loss Surprise!

All I can say is YUM!!!

I really enjoyed making this recipe. It was extremely easy to cook and it didn’t take long at all! Those are the kinds of recipes that I love! Originally, I had planned to make the brown sugar pear french toast, but the strawberries called to me. <3

Ingredients

  • 2 cup(s) unsweetened frozen strawberries, very coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup(s) water
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 4 large egg(s)
  • 3/4 cup(s) fat free skim milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 8 slice(s) reduced-calorie whole wheat bread, or multi-grain
  • 2 spray(s) cooking spray

You start by mixing the strawberries (chopped) and water in a pot and cook them down until the strawberries are soft and juicy.

After it’s done cooking, you add in the sugar and let it dissolve.

Then, whisk the rest of the ingredients together. (other than the bread obviously…that would be weird).

Dip the bread into the egg mixture and cook the slices in a pan with no stick cooking spray.

Once you’re done cooking, top the french toast with the compote.

This recipe is only 4 points! It’s a really great option if you don’t have many points left for the day. Actually…it’s just a good option all around!

We love breakfast for dinner at our house so this will definitely go in my WW weekly rotation! That compote was…MMMMM…

I topped mine with some lite whipped topping too! I highly recommend doing this!

We will most definitely be making this again!

We also went to the grocery store so that I could pick up a few snacky items that are weight watcher friendly.

We stopped and got some fuel.

Mine was a tall very berry hibiscus tea that was 90 calories and 4 WW points. It was so refreshing and yummy! The perfect pick me up! The hub’s was…well…let’s just say not WW friendly. 😛

Once again…I forgot to get the picture of everything all pretty in the cart. One day I’ll get that elusive picture. One day…

But I digress…

Here’s my healthy grocery haul!

I can’t wait to try those WW ice cream bars! I’m drooling just at the thought!

As far as my weight loss surprise….I’VE LOST 3 pounds!

I weighed myself and after only a short time (less than a week) I’ve managed to lose 3 whole pounds just by following the WW eating plan and walking on the treadmill. I WAS SHOCKED! AND SOOO EXCITED!

3 pounds may not seem like a lot but I…

1.) wasn’t expecting it

and

2.) am really proud of myself for losing any weight…no matter how much.

I can’t wait to see the results that I’m going to get in the future!

If you try the strawberry french toast, let me know how you like it! I’d love to hear your thoughts and what you think of the recipe.

Questions:

1.) What kind of fruit compote would you want on your french toast?

2.) Have you tried any of the items in my grocery haul?

3.) How did you find my blog?

Lots of love!

Ellen 🙂
