4. High protein English muffin with creamy cashew spread and lox
This breakfast is made with the combination of the entire healthy substitute to kick start your day in the morning. Instead of a New York style bagel we opt for the high protein English muffin. According to the USDA research a New York style bagel is the same to the eating of four slices of white bread.
We also use the cashew and bean based spread instead of mayonnaise or cream cheese to cut the saturated fats in the recipe. A tomato based lox with the Smokey flavor of paprika instead of the real lox. Let’s have a look at the whole recipe.
