Another tasty muscle recipe for you that’s low in Glycemic Load.
Miss French toast?
Now you can have this high-protein version to feed your hungry muscles and satisfy your taste buds.
Ideally, the type of bread to use is Rye kernel (pumpernickel) bread, which looks like this:
This type of bread is a favorite in Germany and should be a staple in your GLAD diet. It’s readily available all over the world so you shouldn’t have a problem getting your hands on it.
1 slice has a GL of 6, so you can enjoy 2 slices in one sitting to fill your belly without sending your blood sugar sky-high.
If you can’t buy pumpernickel locally, use Volkenbrot (wholemeal rye bread) for a GL of 7, or Wholemeal Rye Bread for a GL of 8.
Now the FUN part…
(1) Crack 1 egg into a bowl and whisk. Now add about 20 grams of whey protein isolate and mix together (I found banana whey was a GORGEOUS flavor for French toast). This is enough mixture for 2 slices.
(2) If you want to sweeten further, add some stevia, truvia, erythritol, or xylitol to stay natural. If you don’t mind splenda, use a teaspoon of that instead.
(3) After it’s all mixed, take your bread and soak both sides in the sticky goo – 1 slice at a time and make sure it’s well saturated.
(4) Place it in your frying pan for a short while on both sides. Less than a minute will cook these to perfection – don’t overdo it.
(5) Remove and salt to taste (use a low-sodium salt).
Here’s the Nutritional Value for 1 serving = 2 slices of French Proast:

People salt French toast?! I never heard of such a thing!
I believe I will be trying this out this weekend– thanks!
Thanks! Now I can enjoy a much healthier french toast (which I love), one thats high in protein!
That’s for the post. Being from Louisiana here in the states, of course I’m a born and breed cajun. So, we like our Pain perdu (french for french toast). So, once again, thanks. This will sure help out with my diet.
GLAD your giving us these recipes Mark, see what I did there lol. No seriously I read a new revised GLAD is coming and as I’ll be looking to add muscle mass with a long bulk soon I’m considering giving your GLAD diet a run when it’s up.
Thanks for another great Recipe, only thing is I’ll have to wait until it’s time to bulk to actually taste these great ideas.
I was wondering if the frying of the protein powder actually destroys the nutritional value/molecular structure of the amino acids??
OK, Ezekiel sprouted grain cinnamon-raisin bread, 1/8 t. orange oil for flavoring seltzer, 6 drops of almond extract and 1 t. of Diabetisweet brown sugar made this absolutely scrumptious. Yum! Mark’s Proast FTW!
@Marochka_Raduga – Sounds amazing! yum!
fucked! the salewomen that sell me whey protein isolate said that after 40 degree celcius the protein will denature…
Hey, was just reading some of these cool recipes, but i was thinking wont most of this protein become denatured with excessive heat. considering that the protein added is synthetic.
