Steal Your Heart French Toast

French Toast Just Stole My Heart.

Last week, I was shopping at Trader Joe's and a loaf of brioche was screaming at me saying "Yo Mandi, gimme a chance to show you what I can do".

Aight brioche you did your thing. I made this 👇 French Toast over the weekend and damn, it was on point.

But here's the thing...in my previous life of keeping a mental list of food rules a mile long, I would never ever touch French Toast (you know that carbs are bad thing). If I was eating out and someone else ordered French Toast, I'd just stare at them while ordering and think "God, I'm so jealous that they can eat that with such joy."

By taming the food rules and internal dialogue through Intuitive Eating, I have been able to enjoy my forbidden foods again. It's not an easy process after 20 years of living with these rules but IT CAN BE DONE.

I don't wanna go through another day of giving power to the food police to determine what I eat with joy.
