I'm tired of being tired.
When I'm tired, I don't have the energy to cook for myself.
On Wednesday night my dinner was half a pint of vanilla bean ice cream. Last night I had a one ounce packet of chocolate hazelnut butter for dinner. After I finished the hazelnut butter I remembered that I have a birch pollen allergy that makes my throat itch when I have hazelnuts. So that was fun.
The irony is that I need nutritious meals to combat the endless fatigue.
So I decided to take matters into my own hands this morning. Using what I had on hand, I put together a quick and elegant brunch. Blue machine Naked Juice plus blackberry mint french toast.
Blackberry French Toast
1. 2 eggs
2. 1/4 c. milk
3. 6 slices of baguette
4. chopped mint
5. handful of halved blackberries
6. a few pads of butter
7. organic maple syrup
Whisk eggs and milk together. Lightly coat the baguette slices and place into a slightly warmed buttered frying pan. (My frying pan would only accomodate three slices at a time, so when the toasts were sufficiently browned, I kept them warm in a 300 degree oven while I made my other three slices.) Lightly butter your french toast and garnish with sliced blackberries and chopped mint. Serve with maple syrup.
Note: 5-6 thin slices of baguette will serve 1; egg/milk mixture will serve 2-3. Extra egg mixture can be scrambled immediately or kept in the fridge for up to two days.
