Happy New Year! Hope you all rung in 2019 with a sense of peace and happiness. This year and like many other years, I don’t make resolutions. I feel like when I do and if i don’t fulfill them, it feels like a broken promise to myself only ending up in disappointment. So instead I try to create intentions and they’re secret intentions, that way there’s no disappointment because there is no expectation. It’s just an intention. And because they’re confidential to myself, then the pressure to remain accountable to that intention is off. You may be asking what is an intention versus a resolution. Well an intention is something you intend to do but there’s no expectation for it to be resolved like a resolution. For instance, one of my intentions could be: being fine with imperfection. A resolution on the other hand would be: I am going to be 10 lbs lighter and never eat chips. The latter could end up in disappointment if you don’t meet your goal of losing 10 lbs by the end of the year or sneak in a bag of chips (btw, what is so wrong with that anyway I freaking love chips). So what is your secret intention(s) for 2019? You don’t have to share them with me but if you want to, I would love to hear them in the comments section.
Now about this delicious COLLAGEN FRENCH TOAST RECIPE. It’s really easy, DELICIOUS, and sounds complex but I swear to you it is not. You also cannot taste the collagen either! The worst is when you can taste collagen and let me tell you, it does not taste nice. Once I mixed it into my water and almost spat the whole mouthful out (not lady like at all). As we all age, collagen is something we need to include in our diets to have young, supple, healthy skin with a bounce. It’s gives our skin that elasticity. It can be acquired from bone broths or in powder form. For this recipe, I used the powder form version by Organika (marine collagen). All you do is mix a heaping tablespoon into 1 organic egg. If you’re making multiple french toasts, then you’ll need 1 heaping tbsp per egg.
I also topped off my delicious french toast with strawberries and maple syrup as well as some avocado for some healthy fat.
Well if you do enjoy this recipe, please share it with your family and friends.

COLLAGEN FRENCH TOAST RECIPE
SERVES 2 SLICES | READY IN 10 MINS
2 slices of wholewheat bread
1 organic egg
2 tbsp powdered marine collagen
1 tbsp coconut oil
Organic maple syrup

In a medium bowl, crack 1 egg into your bowl and whisk in the powder collagen. Don’t worry if the collagen clumps but try to dissolve it as much as possible if you can.
Soak 1 slice of bread into the egg batter and coat it on both sides. Repeat for the other slice.
In a non-stick pan set on medium high heat, add coconut oil. Fry your french toast in until golden brown on each side. Serve hot with your desired toppings. Enjoy!
