This Monday morning we are TOASTING it up- literally! Now that the temps are dropping, toasty warm morning meals are preferred, and even more so, ones that are quick to make so we have more time to stay under the covers.
Before diving into five healthy energy boosting breakfast toast ideas, let’s note what to look for when selecting bread for these tasty recipes.
Always be mindful of the bread ingredients listed. If there are a lot of ingredients that you can’t pronounce, then more than likely the bread has plenty of additives. Go for either sprouted bread, 100% whole wheat or 100% whole grain breads as they don’t contain refined flour and have a higher amount of protein and fiber.
Okay now let’s get to the fruitful toast toppings and their benefits.
Sliced Banana + Almond Butter + Chia Seeds
This is a superfood twist of the classic PB and banana except with protein packed almond butter and a sprinkle of chia seeds. Chia seeds are one of the most nutritious foods in the world, loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.
Kiwi Slices + Vegan Cream Cheese
Did you know kiwifruit contains almost 20 vital nutrients, including five times the vitamin C of an orange in one serving? These fuzzy brown fruits are the perfect superfruits to start your day with.
Pear Slices + Honey + Cashew Ricotta Cheese + Sesame Seeds
Get glowing with pears early in the am! They are full of fiber that prevent skin damage, keeping it smooth, plump, and soft. Fiber slows the release of sugar into your blood, which if happens repeatedly can damage collagen.
Raw Goji Berry Mix + Vegan Cream Cheese
Goji berries are one of the healthiest dried fruits that can be easily added to meals to boost energy levels and performance. They are an excellent high protein addition that also offers a good dose of fiber and of course an abundance of antioxidants.
