As you know from this post, I put on a little weight last year. As a result, I have become a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast. Most days my go to breakfast is a protein shake. But lately I’ve felt the need to shake (no pun intended – ha!) things up and I’ve been craving a piece of toast.
I know, bread has a bad rap. Most people shy away from lots of carbs for all the good reasons we already know about. However, for me personally, I feel like I have a little more energy if I add in small amounts of less processed, whole grain carbs (like Dave’s Killer Bread) and continue to stay away from the lethal combo of heavily processed grains, unhealthy oils and nasty sugars found in so many other high carb foods.
Toast on it’s own does not make for the most exciting or nutritious meal. But with a little creativity toast offers endless tasty opportunities.
A piece of toast topped with peanut butter, bananas, coconut and honey is one of my favorites. Whether you have it for breakfast or a post workout snack, it is so easy, delicious and packed with protein for a great recovery meal.
