For the first years of marriage, my husband and I ate buttered toast every single morning. Not because we were lazy or boring – we just love toast. It wasn’t necessarily great for our energy levels or our waistlines though. Now that we eat mostly green shakes and healthy breakfasts, we can see the difference that breakfast choices make.
I think breakfast is more than just the food you eat – it can be a daily ritual, your time to lay down healthy intentions for yourself. When you start the day by making the choice to feel your best, it sets the tone for a good day.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with a bit of toast – but our version of it has gotten an upgrade! Check out these three Super Toast recipes – they’re easy to make, delicious and with ingredients that will leave you feeling your best. I really hope that you give them a try!
Without question you want to use the best bread available to you – sprouted breads, Ezekiel bread or a beautiful fresh loaf from a good baker. Or try this recipe to make your own 5 minute bread! That’s your base – now we add colors….
Here are 3 ideas I think you’ll love!
Have you tried nutritional yeast? It’s an odd ingredient – it’s deactivated yeast. Sounds like space food – but it’s actually incredibly delicious and a good source of B12. It has a bit of a cheesy flavour, I use it in my cheesy kale chips recipe.
salt & pepper
mash half an avocado and smear it on your bread. Sprinkle your toppings on!
the Better PB&J
Chia jam is too easy not to try! It’s ready in 15 minutes – or you can make a batch and eat it throughout the week. It’s great on toast, but also over yogurt, with some granola or any other way you could imagine eating jam. On this toast, we’re smearing it over some nut-butter, for a nutritionally dense P&J!
1-2 tbsp honey or sweetener of choice
2 tablespoons chia seeds
(if the honey doesn’t sweeten it up enough, add a pinch of stevia or sugar rather than more honey – otherwise it can overpower the flavour a bit. Unless you like that…)
chop your strawberries in small pieces and cook them over the stove with the honey or sweetener until it breaks down, about 5 minutes. Pour into a container and add in the chia seeds. Into the fridge for about 10 minutes, or until it sets.

Tahini is ground sesame seeds, which is incredibly high in calcium. It makes a lovely spread, especially when dressed up with a little honey & spice! You can also use up your tahini to make hummus and creamy salad dressings.
spread tahini over toast. Drizzle plenty of honey and sprinkle on some cinnamon. Top the whole thing off with a few slices of banana.
