Toast is a standard for breakfast, however, we’ve found that toast simply is satisfying for any meal! It’s a quick nutritious snack, or cut in squares can serve as an appetizer. Serve your toast open faced with a yummy salad for a great light lunch or dinner. Toast can be as simple as 2 ingredients such as avocado and flake salt. In fact, because of all the good for you reasons to eat avocados, this toast has made it onto many well known restaurant menus. Add some thinly sliced radish, micro greens or a fried egg to your beloved avo toast and you’ve upped your nutritional benefit.
The deal about toast is that its a comfort food, period. The Standard American Toast is butter and jam, however at our house peanut butter and jelly was what we loved most as our toppers~ especially with our homemade strawberry jam or lemon verbena nectarine jam. But then came the new better for you butters: almond, cashew, sunflower seed, even coconut butter~ the better for you butters that add great health benefits. Nut butters are heart healthy and are a great source for brain health. However, there are other ways to make great tasting toast without using nut butters…Because there are a lot of people with nut allergies.
Today, Meg and I challenged ourselves to come up with a few new, somewhat wild out-of-the-box-ideas, that we thought kids of any age might enjoy. We went with a standard banana toast, but paired it with sun-butter, fresh grapes, and cinnamon. Then we went for the full beneficial fats from cashew and coconut butters and topped it with fresh figs for a wow factor in every bite! And last with a savory Mediterranean toast with a twist*, we added our favorite vegan chive cream cheese, seaweed*, cucumbers, tomatoes and kalamata olives. Each one was so different in flavor, yet all so delicious in their own way! We cant wait for you to try these yummy creations!
We hope we got your creative juices flowing. We’d love to hear which combos you enjoyed and your own personal new combinations you’ve created. Please share with us in the comments below.
