I l-o-v-e breakfast! I look forward to making it every day! Being a curious human, super interested in nutrition - I have dabbled in some trends. Skipping breakfast is one that I just can't do! By 10 am I am ravenous and ready to eat anything and everything in sight -do you feel me?! So, in the vein of starting the day off full and satisfied, this is one of my simple go-to's. Loaded with healthy fats, plant sourced protein and yummy carbohydrates, it's sure to add some deliciousness to your morning, mid afternoon or evening - whatever floats your amazing boat! :)
Here is the nutritious b r e a k d o w n of this toast ⬇️
Sprouted bread: I always have a loaf of sprouted bread in my freezer. Sprouted bread is made from grains and seeds that have been sprouted meaning the phytic acid and antinutrients that protect them (from being eaten) are broken down and neutralized. This allows for easier digestion (!) and better absorption (!) of the vitamins and minerals, creating a super nutrient dense food! It's naturally high in protein, fiber, vitamins & minerals - making it an awesome option. Avocado: Avocados are an incredible healthy fat! It's a super nutrient dense food loaded with antioxidants! A tip for storing the other half - wrap the half with the seed in tin foil - it will stay fresh a *little* longer! (I can't promise anything, we know how moody avocados can be) ;)
Nutritional Yeast: This is a deactivated yeast that is chalked full of vitamins and minerals especially the B-vitamins! It's a complete protein and it adds a nutty flavour to anything you use it in. I highly recommend incorporating it into your dishes, for an added nutritious kick!
Hummus: Hummus is one of my favourite foods. It's easy, nutritious, versatile and full of healthy fat and protein.
Tomato: Great source of lycopene - a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C, potassium and folate - add's great flavour! Hemp Seeds: These little power house seeds are amazing to sprinkle on everything! Packed with protein, omega-3's, omega-6's and essential fatty acids. 3 tablespoons will give you 10 grams of complete protein!
Chis Seeds: Another seed loaded with essential fatty acids, protein, fiber and omega's!
Brazil Nuts: 2 Brazil nuts will give you your daily intake of selenium. Selenium is a vital element that is so important for thyroid and immune system function. It is not produced naturally in the body, so eat it up!
1 slice sprouted bread
1/2 an avocado
1 tbls nutritional yeast
1 tbls of hummus
2 slices of tomato
1 tsp hemp seeds

You can totally make this your own by adding your own fun foods!
Assemble all of the delicious ingredients on your toast and enjoy! 🌱
