Establishing healthy habits doesn’t mean you need to take a rigid approach to diet or stick to eating the same foods.

The key to a healthy, balanced diet is eating wholesome foods you enjoy and including a lot of variety in your meals — even at breakfast. 

If you’re keen to try a quick, healthy breakfast, this French toast recipe is a nutritious meal to start the day. It’s easy to make and includes a great mix of carbohydrate and protein, as well as being a source of fibre. If you're on a plant-based diet, try Kayla's vegan French toast instead.
