The low-carb French Toast requires Healthy Life bread (5 net carbs and 35 calories per slice of Italian or whole-wheatwhite has 6g). P.S. The sugar-free whole wheat bread, which you'd think would be the best choice for a diabetes friendly meal, actually has more calories and nearly double the carbs!)
