1. Crock Pot Creamy Banana French Toast

Everything about this recipe screams classy. The brown sugar and Grand Marnier are just what you need to get your day going. Plus, it calls for Challah bread which everyone knows is the best foundation of a great French toast. You could even grab your culinary torch if you feel like getting really fancy.

5. Classic French Toast

Plain Janes, listen up. If you’re unsure of which recipe to start with, try this one. You can’t go wrong with the original French toast. The simplicity of the soaked bread all warm and gooey is beautiful – no frills needed. Everyone is sure to enjoy this dish.

6. Baked Stuffed French Toast

Think of this recipe as a sandwich’s cousin. Gruyere and ham sit inside the pockets in the rustic bread and melt in your mouth. Simple, but unique. A huge benefit of this recipe is getting to bake it instead of trying to use four skillets at once. Thank you, Martha Stewart.

7. Brioche French Toast with Asparagus and Orange Beurre Blanc

If you actually know what orange beurre blanc is, I applaud you. This sauce is made by boiling and reducing white wine, orange juice, shallots, cream, and butter. Already drooling? Me too. Also adorning the French toast is some roasted asparagus. Whip up this dish, and you’ll look like a pro.

8. French Toast Roll Ups

This recipe wins the fun prize. Not only are they easy to make, but they also look pretty spiffy. The cinnamon and sugar filling and coating will satisfy your cinnamon bun and French toast cravings. Plus, dipping the warm roll ups in syrup is practically a party in and of itself.

9. Pumpkin Baked French Toast

No need to feel guilty after devouring a serving (or two) of this dish. You’ll have many chances to substitute healthier ingredients – prefered milk, bread, sweetener, and even the option to nix the butter. Assemble it the night before, and wake up to a comforting dose of fall weather any time of the year.

10. French Toast in a Mug

It doesn’t get any easier than this! If you have five minutes and a mug, you can make French toast. The recipe calls for chocolate chips, but feel free to add any mix-ins of choice – use your imagination. When that microwave dings, you’ll be melting at the sight in front of you.

Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

Are you a red wine drinker? What if I tell you sipping in a glass of wine can equate to an hour of exercise? Yup, it’s tried and tested. A new scientific study has just confirmed this wonderful news. So next time you hold a glass of Merlot, you can brag about one hour of hard workout. Rejoice, drinkers!

What the study found out

“I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Resveratrol could mimic exercise for the more improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do.”

(applauds)

I’m not saying this, but the study’s principal investigator Jason Dyck who got it published in the Journal of Physiology in May.

In a statement to ScienceDaily, Dyck pointed out that resveratrol is your magic “natural compound” which lavishes you with the same benefits as you would earn from working out in the gym.

And where do you find it? Fruits, nuts and of course, red wine!

Did I forget to mention Dyck also researched resveratrol can “enhance exercise training and performance”?

There are limits, of course

But, all is not gold as they say. If you’re a lady who likes to flaunt holding a glass of white wine in the club or simply a Chardonnay-lover,you have a bad (sad) news. The “one hour workout” formula only works with red wine, not non red wines. And don’t be mistaken and think you’ve managed 4 to 6 hours of workout sessions if you happen to gulp down a bottle of red wine.

And what can replace the golden lifetime benefits of exercise?Exercise is just as important as you age. Period! But hey, don’t be discouraged; look at the bigger picture here. A glass of red wine is not a bad deal after all!

The health benefits of red wine

But just how beneficial is the red alcoholic beverage to your body? As we all know red wine is a healthier choice youc an make when boozing.

Let’s hear it from a registered dietitian. Leah Kaufman lists red wine as the “most calorie friendly” alcoholic beverage. Sure, you won’t mind adding up to a mere 100 calories per 5-ounce glass of red wine after you realize it contains antioxidants, lowers risk of heart disease and stroke, reduces risk of diabetes-related diseases, helps avoid formation of blood clots and lowers bad cholesterol level.

Wantmore? Wine could also replace your mouthwash because the flavan-3-ols in red wines can control the “bad bacteria” in your mouth.To add to that list of benefits, moderate wine drinking may be beneficial for your eyes too – a recent study mentions.

Be aware of the risks, too

Having mentioned all the ‘goods’ about red wine, you cannot underplay the fact that it is still an alcohol, which isn’t the best stuff to pour into your body. What is excessive drinking going to do to your body? Know the risks and you should be a good drinker at the end of the day.

However, you don’t want to discard the red vino from your “right eating”regimen just because it stains your teeth blue. M-o-d-e-r-a-t-i-o-n. Did you read that? That’s the operative word when it comes to booze.

By the way, when chocolate is paired with wine, particularly red, they can bring you some exceptional benefits towards your health.But again, if you tend to go overboard and booze down bottles after bottles, you are up for the negative side of alcohol, and we all know what too much of sweetness (sugar) can do to our body (open invitation to diabetes and heart diseases if you aren’t aware).

Folks, the red grape beverage is certainly a good buy to have a good hour’s worth of cardio, provided you keep the ‘M’ word in mind. Cheers!
