A Post about Toast

Let us toast to good health!

As promised in a previous post, I’ve got a couple quick, simple recipes for your chompers. šŸ™‚ Most days for most of us, we need something quick, convenient, and something to keep us full and satisfied until the next break. “What’s so great about toast?” you may ask. With these ingredients, I assure you, you’ll be the toast of the house.

These heavy-weights aren’t gonna let dry toast get you down!

The keys in these two recipes to making a great breakfast, are focusing on good protein, good fat, carbs (pre-digested with the use of sourdough), and fiber.

Avocado Toast for two:
2 slices of sourdough or sprouted grain bread
1 avocado
1 Tbs Vegenaise
salt and pepper to taste
harissa seasoning to taste
seasoned, roasted pumpkin seeds
onion jam

We’re not scrambling eggs this morning, we’re mashing avocado.

Assembly:
After toasting your bread, mash your avocado with Vegenaise and season to taste with salt, pepper, and harissa. Spread half the avocado mix onto each slice of bread, sprinkle with pumpkin seeds, drizzle a dollup of onion jam on top, then sprinkle with more pumpkin seeds.

This avocado toast will have you kissing Hass.

What I love about this recipe, besides the mouth-watering tastiness and satiation, is the use of pumpkin seeds and bread give us a mix of complex and simple proteins, while allowing the utilization of the tryptophan for our nervous system.

Cashew Butter and Banana Toast for two:
2 slices of sourdough or sprouted grain bread
your favorite cashew butter (look for no sugar or oil used – one ingredient cashew butter)
1 banana, sliced
1 Tsp Vegenaise
seasoned, roasted pumpkin seeds
maple syrup

Let’s not split up these ingredients.

Assembly:
After toasting your bread, spread a thin layer of Vegenaise, and a thicker layer of cashew butter, to your liking, on top of your slices. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds, top with banana slices, more pumpkin seeds, and then drizzle a little maple syrup.

This recipe also meets the desires for a little sweet and a little salty in your breakfast. We again have incorporated some simple and complex nutrients. The cashew butter, like pumpkin, contains those good fats and aminos for brain happiness. For more on cashews: The World’s Healthiest Foods

If Marie-Antoinette had tried these recipes, she would’ve said: “Laissez-les manger des toasts! – Let them eat toast!”

These are just two fun ways you can spruce of your boring toast routine, while getting in and out of the kitchen, quickly. Why skimp on flavor with convenience? I say, “You can have your toast and eat it too!”

Enjoy your art and may you live well!
