I am not a health food addict. Though if you ask anyone who has spent some time eating with me they may say I am
careful about what I eat. I don’t do sweets unless I’m going to make someone feel bad for not eating their homemade apple pie. I very rarely eat pasta or any other starch unless it’s sprouted grain or some such nonsense and the last bottle of soda I purchased to “quench my thirst” was probably 8 years ago. The fact of the matter is I didn’t grow up consuming that stuff and no one in my family eats a lot of so-called junk. I’m not consciously trying to be extremely healthy. I’m just much more interested in food that make me feel good. What this normally ends up meaning is while I like my junk food (Ramen, potato chips, Chinese take-out …pizza) I usually manage to throw something in with it to make it somewhat nutritional so it doesn’t make me completely ill.
The way I see it is there is no point eating it if it isn’t going to somehow fuel my body and keep me going! I don’t have much time to eat right so I admit that I occasionally cut corners. I started thinking about how my unhealthy eating often looks kind of healthy to a lot people and decided to start sharing my unhealthy healthy eating with you my friends! You can Google healthy recipes but let’s be honest sometimes all you want is some good old crap to soften the rough edges around a bad day. So I’m going to post some of my favorite “healthy” junk food. I shall call it Hunk food (no it does not come with Antonio Sabato)
French Toast Waffles with Honey:
I use Ezekiel bread because it has sprouted grains which have a lot of health benefite and are easier to digest. However, you can use regular whole wheat bread too.
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup low-fat (1-percent)milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons butter (I stopped using margarine years ago but that is another story)
- 8 slices firm whole-wheat bread
Melt your butter and then mix all of the ingredients above. Soak bread in this mixture and place it in your waffle maker until cooked to your taste. Swap that syrup for some local raw honey!
