One Slice, Endless Possibilities

Toast Tuesdays, a popular trending hashtag in the Instagram community- especially among wellness and heath bloggers and I am SO on board.  Bread always get a bad rep, and as a nutritionist (soon to be RD) I would like to put this statement out in the universe, or at least the internet —  Bread is EVERYTHING.  Bread is not making you fat.  Eating too much bread and other shit is.  Ugh- buying a fresh loaf of bread at Whole Foods or the local bakery, nothing better.  If your body can tolerate it – there is totally nothing wrong with enjoying a slice or two..

Bread rant over. On last thing: Carbs- I love you.  

So back to #ToastTuesday I’m obsessed with it because I get to enjoy my favorite thing in the world (bread- duh) with an infinite about of toppings. There are three major building nutrients that our body needs- AKA macronutritents. Carbohydrates, Protein and Fat. We have the carbohydrate already so now we can build our toast by adding a fat and a protein.  For me, starting my day off with the balance of carbs, protein and fat keeps my brain working right away and I do not get hungry until lunch. BAM.

The best thing about toast is that you can KEEP adding to it just to make it more nutrient dense.

Proteins I like to use as a toast topper: Almond butter, Peanut butter, Egg (hard boiled or over easy), shredded chicken, nuts and seeds.

Fats I use are avocado, olive oil, nuts and seeds

Additionals: I like to had fresh herbs or dried spices to my bread.  Sometimes, if it’s a sweeter bread, as pictured below, I will add a drizzle of raw honey.
