Healthy. Simple. - Toast Toppers

by Kelsey D. | Jan 19, 2017

Toast is the best thing to happen to bread since, well, sliced bread. When faced with exotic foods, trendy styles of cooking and expensive gadgets – eating healthy can seem overwhelming and complicated. But choosing healthy options and making healthy snacks can be simple! All you need is a slice of toast, nutritious spreads and toppings.

We’ve chosen three easy Toast Toppers to get you started!

Toast Topper Trio

Toast and breakfast go hand in hand! Toast toppers for breakfast are easy and delicious! We used the following combinations on Chia Whole Wheat and sprinkled extra chia seeds on top for more protein and omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Nut Butter + Raw Cacao Nibs
  • Nut Butter + Banana
  • Nut Butter + Rasperries + Cacao Nibs

We used almond butter, but any healthy spread will do.

Cottage Cheese and Raspberries on Chia

Not a fan of nut butter? Try cottage cheese! Cottage cheese is low in fat, and high in protein and goes well as both a sweet and savoury snack. We topped it with raspberries, honey and sunflower seeds for an extra crunch, but try it with avocado and tomatoes, or hard boiled eggs and paprika.

Bruschetta on Sunflower Flax Sourdough

For an afternoon snack or even a light dinner, toast up your favourite slice of bread and top with a bruschetta mix – chop up tomatoes, onion, basil and drizzle a bit of olive oil then top your toast for a quick snack.

Bonus Toast Topper Idea

This toast topper recipe is a bit more labour intensive, but oh so delicious! We toasted up our Sunflower Flax Sourdough and topped it with a soft poached egg, slices of avocado and some micro-greens.
