Hello Healthy Toast!

FullSizeRender 51

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I LOVE toast! Ever since I was a toddler I’ve been a big fan of bread. English muffins, bagels, biscuits, rolls, wheat, white, and rye… all amazing! So, when I went gluten free 3 years ago I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. Thankfully (and after plenty of effort) I’ve found some pretty great breads! My faves are Food For Life vegan rice toast and Canyon Bakehouse products.

Toast is just so much fun! You start with a simple slice of bread, toast it to a glorious golden brown, and add any tasty colorful topping that suits your fancy. Whether you’re craving savory or sweet, toast is always a good idea!

If I want something savory, I usually top my toast with some creamy mashed avocado and a boiled or scrambled egg. So simple and yet so satisfying! If I want something sweet, I just smear on some PB2 or almond butter with a dab of creamed honey and lots of fresh fruit (nature’s jelly). The crispiness of the toast coming together with the creaminess of your favorite topping can be ‘simply magical’.

So today, in honor of ‘Toasty Tuesday’, toast yourself a simple slice that’s sure to satisfy! Or if you’re craving something even sweeter, try my simple French toast! Just soak a slice in 1 egg white, a splash of almond milk and some cinnamon, pan fry and top with your fave fruits, real maple syrup and a drizzle of peanut butter!

How about you? Do you boast about your toast? How do you top yours?

    Oh yes, I’m a bread lover too! There’s nothing better than warm fresh bread… even better dipping it into a pot of homemade tomato sauce 🙂 I like eating wheat toast with mashed avocado or banana with peanut butter the best!

    Oh me and bread go ways back. Being a carb fanatic Ive always had a soft spot for bread and bread products, but now that Im gluten free it has been a difficult transition! I have found some bread that toasts well, but most gluten-free bread doesn’t hold together well for sandwiches. Toast it is I guess!

    I’m so with you! Toast is the best! I usually do sliced or mashed avocado with just a sprinkle of sea salt. But I also loveeee a nut butter with a drizzle of honey!! And now I want a snack…. lol

    This is such a great post! I found you via Athletic Avocado’s blog, and am glad I did because I enjoy your food blog. This post in particular is great in how you share different ideas of how to top toast with beautiful healthiness! Great pictures too. I’m all about topping my bread with weird stuff lol, but my main go-to is homemade peanut butter (if I can get around to making it), sliced almonds and a drizzle of honey on top. Yum! Thanks for sharing!
