Toast toppings to power you through the day
We’ve embraced the courgetti craze and even the cronut, but there’s a new trend that’s captured the imagination and taste-buds of food-lovers across the UK: toast.
That doesn’t just mean your standard slice of bread with marmalade or jam, and eaten in a hurry on the way out to work in the morning. This is so much more.
Toast can be accompanied by so many toppings. It’s possible to create a filling meal that’s packed with healthy goodness, and takes only a few minutes to prepare. What’s more, it can be enjoyed at any time of the day – not just breakfast!
With the right toppings, you can pack in a healthy dose of protein, fibre and vitamins, all from a humble slice of toast.
- Avocado & salmon For a healthy snack that will leave you feeling satisfied and full of energy, avocado and salmon is the go-to option. Avocados are packed with nutrients and are high in healthy fats and potassium, while the salmon provides a dose of omega 3.
- Egg, spinach & mushrooms Eggs are a great source of protein and energy, and as they take no longer to cook than a slice of toast, they’re the perfect choice for breakfast. Spinach is packed full of nutrients, and mushrooms are a great source of Vitamin B.
- Banana & peanut butter An easy and scrumptious topping for anyone in a rush, this toast contains plenty of good sugars and a healthy dose of potassium from the banana. What’s more, a thin layer of peanut butter is packed with healthy fats and protein.
- Cottage cheese & strawberries Cottage cheese is low in fat, and high in calcium. Spread it thickly on a slice of wholegrain bread and top with strawberries for a sweet/savoury mix and a dose of vitamin C.
