You’ve probably heard it before: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s also the most skipped meal of the day. It may seem like skipping breakfast is an easy way to eat fewer calories in a day. You’re eating one less meal, so it must help with weight loss, right?
Wrong. A study done by The Journal of the American Dietetic Association showed that people who ate a balanced, nutritious breakfast each day actually weighed less than those who skipped breakfast.
I hate to admit this, but one of my favorite breakfast foods is French toast. When I looked up the nutrition facts for the French Toast at a local popular breakfast restaurant, I was amazed.
Their French Toast has over 1000 calories, 39 grams of fat, and a whopping 74 grams of sugar per order. That’s more sugar than in a can of coke and more fat than a Big Mac.
Instead of giving up French toast, I created this recipe with health in mind. A generous serving (half the recipe) has around 400 calories, less than 7 grams of fat and 10 grams of sugar. It’s even a prebiotic recipe.
Prebiotics consist of soluble fiber which actually feeds the good bacteria in your gut. By eating prebiotics, you’ll strengthen the probiotic colonies in your digestive system, making them even more effective.
The prebiotic foods in this recipe are whole wheat flour, bananas, apples, almonds and wheat bran. This recipe has high-quality protein from eggs, almonds and skim milk. It is sweetened with honey, which has been shown to boost energy and even help regulate sleep.

Remember, adding a healthy, balanced breakfast to your day is worth it. You’ll notice changes in your focus and energy right away. Plus, you may see increases in the benefits from your BIO-X4.
