Energizing Breakfast Toasts (Vegan)
Before I dive in on how to make these delicious toasts, I wanted to touch base on what bread to use. For the longest, bread has had a pretty bad rap, mostly due to low carb, gluten free, or grain free diets. But I am here to tell you that bread is BACK! I am vegan and I find bread to be a staple in my daily diet. Its a great source of carbohydrates, grain, fiber and so much more. I like to shop for a local bread, wherever I am at, in Boston MA, or in Portland OR I try and grab a local, small slice option, either whole wheat, multi grain or sprouted. Whenever I can I like to buy local and support small businesses. Whole Foods has a wonderful local bread section!
I can eat avocado just by itself, so a simple avocado and alfalfa sprout option is delicious. I simply toast my bread, I don't add butter to it, once the bread is toasted I add the fresh avocado, either in slices or mashed and then top with alfalfa sprouts!
One of my favorites! I again just toast the bread and don't add any butter, I top with Justin's classic peanut butter and add sliced bananas, usually only half of a regular sized banana. I finish it off with a sprinkle of cinnamon and diced pecans!
When I am feeling fiesty in the morning I do my southwestern toast. Using half of an avocado I dice it into small squares sprinkle a little salt and pepper into the mix and add it to the toast. I then dice up green, yellow, and red bell peppers and add them on, then top with spicy black beans!
