Challah-french-toast-recipe-1-SunCakeMomThere are certain things in life that exist on the margin of inconceivability. Couple that with our notorious nature of taking things to the extremes and the results will be as epic as uncontrollable.

To the dismay for many of us, life is about actions, reactions governed by the almighty balance.

In its basic sense, balance is a state where the participating forces are equal in strength so they cancel each other out, resulting a nonactive state.

Balance, therefore, is not really an exciting, vibrant thing but mundane, uninteresting environment where nothing special ever happens, or at least it looks like from a certain distance.

If we genuinely want to understand the underlying mechanisms, we must start studying our chemistry at the atomic level.

Noble gases are highly unreactive gases located in group 18 in the periodic table with all their shells naturally full of electrons. They are like old couples who found their love of life at kindergarten and at 80 they are still going strong.

Apparently, the rest of the elements are seeking to do the same things- which is filling their shells up with electrons- but they are left to forge various bonds with each other, trying to achieve a state that stands the test of time.

If we really want to be scientifically accurate then noble gases are more like monks because they really keep for themselves but that would leave the emotions out of the story so just get on with it like this.

This mingling of elements through time and space causes all sort of things, including birth then death of stars, planets, and life all across the universe.

Interestingly, we like to think ourselves as free-thinking individuals who have total control over our life or at least our actions but at our vary core, we are just a bunch of atoms that try to figure out how to reach their perfect balanced state.

Some of us are better at seeking balance than others. Although balance can be boring, it is the only state that provides our most precious resource, we all have in scarcity, longevity.

We all must seek resources and use their nutritional values to keep ourselves alive but if we accumulate too much of them, it becomes a burden that holds us back.

Unfortunately for many of us, over time we have become way to good at facilitating our body with what it needs, way too little effort to balance the energy surplus.

To balance energy out, hence avoid storing it in a vaguely humanoid shape of fat suite, we have two choices where one is more excruciating than the other.

The primary and preventative measure is simply not to overload our system with energy, so it will not have the chance to shift the balance.

Sure, this is the healthiest and most conscious method that should be everyone’s priority but most of us are not brought up with by nutritionist parents who count their calories to the last digit to ensure their body lacks no nutrients at any given day.

So, for many of us -especially those who have just started to consider tilting their life into a more balanced state for their whole being- getting only the right amount, seems a bit difficult.

So, if we prefer burning a few extra calories daily in exchange for a couple of rewarding bites, get ready to pile up a couple of extra miles if we plunge into the seductive world of challah.Challah-french-toast-recipe-3-SunCakeMom

How to make Challah french toast

  1. Beat eggs, milk and vanilla together.Milk-egg-beat-fork-bowl--gp--1-SunCakeMom
  2. Slice the challah up. Making french toast is excellent way to use up stale bread or in this case a couple of days old challah. Sure, fresh challah will be just as good but mind that it will soak up the egg/milk mixture much quicker than the stale challah.

  3. Soak the slices into the egg and milk mixture. Try one at the time and once we get the feel of how much liquid can be absorbed by the challah, go wilder.Challah-french-toast-recipe-Process-4-SunCakeMom
  4. Heat butter in a skillet then place the soaked challah in.Challah-french-toast-recipe-Process-5-SunCakeMom
  5. Once one side got golden brown, flip it over.Challah-french-toast-recipe-Process-6-SunCakeMom
  6. When both sides of the challah french toast get the desired golden brown color, remove from the skillet and let them cool somewhat. Serve as it is or sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle it with honey.Challah-french-toast-recipe-Process-7-SunCakeMom
