Gourmet Protein Toast

Breakfast, snack, lunch, or dinner, sometimes a hearty piece of toast just hits the spot!

Avocado toast has been a popular trend for a while now - but there’s no need to stop there. The great thing about toast is it’s fast, easy and there are infinite topping possibilities.

Let’s talk about the bread for a minute: You want something that’s healthy (like wholegrain) and hearty enough to hold the mountain of toppings you’re about to throw at it. Here are some of our favorite breads to use for toasting:

  • Whole grain bread with lots of seeds - we love the Seduction Loaf from the Whole Foods Bakery

  • Sourdough bread - tastes amazing when toasted and piled with toppings.

  • If you’re going pre-sliced - we love Dave’s Killer Bread

  • For gluten-free -
