A New Take on Toast

So I have a pretty strict morning ritual. A granola bar and a smoothie made with almond milk, banana, kale, chia seeds, lemon juice and zest, frozen mango and strawberries, and soy yogurt. However, this summer, I have a bit more time, so I decided it was time to spice up my morning ritual. I saw this article on BuzzFeed about all sorts of different interesting toasts you could make. My new favorite, which I’ve been eating the last few mornings, is whole wheat toast, smeared with fat free cream cheese, topped with sliced strawberries and chopped mint, and then finished with a drizzle of honey.

Dave’s favorite has been whole wheat toast covered in a layer of fat free refried beans, topped with a dollop of salsa, and finished with a fried egg.

No matter what your usual morning breakfast ritual is, I definitely recommend spicing it up and trying some of these takes on toast. We’re trying two new ones each week. Next up, whole wheat toast with hummus, pomegranate seeds, and walnuts for me; chickpeas, tomato, and fried egg on whole wheat toast for Dave.
