My Diet Journey: French Toast Sticks with Cinnamon Ricotta Creme

Now that I’m in phase 2 of my south beach diet, I can finally reintroduce some carbs that I’ve been avoiding. So to make use of this opportunity of having one serving of carbs in my diet now, I made french toast sticks for breakfast.
