Sourdough French Toast With Nut and Fruit Syrup

My girls have always loved french toast. When we switched to real/whole/traditional foods over 3 years ago, french toast was an easy food to convert to real foods. Using eggs from free-range chickens and real milk along with sourdough bread makes a terrific breakfast/brunch or even quick dinner.
