Epic Toast Toppers For Any (and every) Occasion

I am an avid toast fan. Toast is a wonderful and simplistic pleasure; and a medium to carry an array of flavours, both savoury and sweet (hello toast toppers). I adore how toast gives a crunchy base that balances out the more often than not soft and juicy toppings. Unfortunately our current western culture has gotten its knickers in a knot about toast, or bread in general. There is nothing at all wrong with bread; it’s just about finding the variety that’s right for you and then including it as part of a balanced dietary intake.

Whole food breads provide a great base of complex carbohydrates. When purchasing (or making) your bread, look for a loaf that has a wholegrain base. This will ensure the bread is jam-packed with fibre, vitamins and minerals from wholegrains, whether that be wheat, rye, barley, buckwheat, brown rice or sorghum. Ideally go for a sourdough base or a simplistic yeast and water base with a little oil and salt. The more additives and numbers you see, the less ideal it is. Added seeds and legumes for nutrition and crunch are wonderful too! This also applies to gluten free breads. A gluten free bread made from white flours is still going to be low in fibre, don’t assume just because it screams ‘gluten free’ that its a super food.  Check out my three favourite toppings to jazz up my daily bread!

Toast 1: almond butter, strawberries, coconut + pecans

  • Pop your toast in the toaster and cook to your liking.
  • Spread with almond butter, sliced strawberries, coconut and chopped pecans.
