Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist Eats

I ate toast every single morning for a good two years. Seriously.

Sometimes I would switch it up with some oats or a smoothie but I started my day with a sprouted bagel or two slices of sprouted bread toast for two years. It was also when I worked in a bakery so there was a) lots of bread, b) I ate/slept/dreamt bread, c) it was easy and d) it was delicious!

I’m getting back into my toast routine but I’m stepping up the topping ideas to add some more fun – and NUTRITION – to your typical toast.

Get your toasters ready…

Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsAvocado has to be one of my favorite toppings for toast. A touch of mayo, or a slice of cheese adds a lot, but it’s also delicious on its own. Sprinkle with some high-quality salt (It seriously makes a big difference, I love maldon) and some red pepper flakes if you want a little heat.

Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsThis is a standard breakfast/lunch/dinner meal. Topping toast with a fried egg is a natural choice and for good reason. Spread with a pat of butter or coconut oil if desired, or simply leave the yolk runny for ultimate dipping.

A drizzle of olive oil + a sprinkling of salt + pepper is all this toast needs but if you want a little more flavor, add some high-quality balsamic vinegar. It also makes a perfect lunch.

 

 

 

 



Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsPeanut Butter is always a good idea on toast. And it is what I always topped mine with for those two years. Adding bananas + honey is icing on the “toast” cake in my opinion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsVegetable Cream Cheese (I couldn’t find one that I liked, so I made my own!) + sprouts is one of those meals that is almost too good to be true. You could also top with some sliced cucumber.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsRicotta Cheese + Preserves feels like such a treat on a weekday morning. I like it topped with preserves, but you could also go a savory route and top with a drizzle of olive oil + salt + pepper. Apricot or orange flavors are perfect, but really, anything will work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope I’ve given you some inspiration to mix up your toast. What do you top your toast with?

I’m not normally a turkey burger person. But this one, served with a bright aioli, is good. And it’s healthy. And it’s still January, so everyone wants “light/lean/skinny/healthy/paleo” recipes. So here we are. First a salad and now a turkey burger. Could I be anymore predictable? Sigh. How did I – the self-proclaimed non-turkey burger
