Sweet or savory toast, why force yourself to make a decision?! Just give in and have both!

I always struggle with this, do I want savory avocado toast with sriracha, lime juice, and sea salt, or avocado toast with honey and jam? Both are absolutely delicious, but I’m limited to one choice. I wanted to give you 6 go-to options the next time you’re struggling with decision fatigue around toast toppers! Bookmark this or pin this post so you can remember later and use it as an ultimate toast guide!

Let’s break toast down in a super simple way – here’s your ultimate guide for how to toast.

Step No. 1, the bread 

Grain Free Walnut Bread | Tastes Like Rye Flaxseed Loaf | Golden Savory Loaf | Nourishing Nut & Seed Bread

Step No. 2, the spread 

Homemade almond butter or other nut/seed butters | mashed or sliced avocado | Raspberry Chia Jam | whipped honey | Classic Cashew Cheese | Sweet Cashew Cream Cheese | hummus | Spinach Basil Pesto

Step No. 3, the topper

Poached egg | sliced vegetables | sliced fruit | kimchi | wild caught smoked salmon | grilled portobella mushroom cap | organic tofu or tempeh

Step No. 4, the finishing touch

Chopped fresh herbs | sea salt + black pepper | juice of lemon or lime | seasonings of choice | olive oil | balsamic vinegar | olives

So, you can see toast can be quite the meal if you add in substantial amounts of fiber, protein, healthy fats, and carbohydrates typically found in bread or fruit if you choose to add to your toast. Or you can make this a snack by just having 1 slice and adding each of Steps No. 1-4.

Post your toast!
