Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist Eats

I ate toast every single morning for a good two years. Seriously.

Sometimes I would switch it up with some oats or a smoothie but I started my day with a sprouted bagel or two slices of sprouted bread toast for two years. It was also when I worked in a bakery so there was a) lots of bread, b) I ate/slept/dreamt bread, c) it was easy and d) it was delicious!

I’m getting back into my toast routine but I’m stepping up the topping ideas to add some more fun – and NUTRITION – to your typical toast.

Get your toasters ready…

Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsAvocado has to be one of my favorite toppings for toast. A touch of mayo, or a slice of cheese adds a lot, but it’s also delicious on its own. Sprinkle with some high-quality salt (It seriously makes a big difference, I love maldon) and some red pepper flakes if you want a little heat.

Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsThis is a standard breakfast/lunch/dinner meal. Topping toast with a fried egg is a natural choice and for good reason. Spread with a pat of butter or coconut oil if desired, or simply leave the yolk runny for ultimate dipping.





Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsMozzarella + Tomato may be a little out of the ordinary for breakfast, but why not? A drizzle of olive oil + a sprinkling of salt + pepper is all this toast needs but if you want a little more flavor, add some high-quality balsamic vinegar. It also makes a perfect lunch.





Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsPeanut Butter is always a good idea on toast. And it is what I always topped mine with for those two years. Adding bananas + honey is icing on the “toast” cake in my opinion.







Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsVegetable Cream Cheese (I couldn’t find one that I liked, so I made my own!) + sprouts is one of those meals that is almost too good to be true. You could also top with some sliced cucumber.







Toast Toppings | A Nutritionist EatsRicotta Cheese + Preserves feels like such a treat on a weekday morning. I like it topped with preserves, but you could also go a savory route and top with a drizzle of olive oil + salt + pepper. Apricot or orange flavors are perfect, but really, anything will work.







I hope I’ve given you some inspiration to mix up your toast. What do you top your toast with?

    I eat the same thing most days too but really should have more toast, I love it! Especially with eggs.

    Ricotta and jam is one of my favorite ways to eat toast too – or I used to do cream cheese and jam.

    I’ve never tried avocado toast before. I really need to get on it!

    I eat GF toast every single morning! Love it with Justin’s maple almond butter, but avocado toast is my absolute fave! Fun post!

    Abe and I are a bit obsessed w fancy toast these days. I’ve been using Kaya Jam (for Kaya Toast!) but he’s been spending $4 at Go Get Em Tiger, which drives me insane.

    Oh these are some great ideas! I’m a huge fan of almond butter and banana (maybe with some coconut) and of course avocado!

    Oh man, I love toast! What great ideas. And I second the kaya toast. I haven’t found it around here yet, but I’d travel back to Southeast Asia just for that! :)

    I will often eat toast with avocado and some sriacha or Cholula as an easy lunch, but I love the idea of a smear of mayo underneath the avocado! LOVE your photos for this post!

    Thanks for some new ideas! Avo with a touch of mayo on top of toast is my favorite! Hope you’re doing well :)

    I like to mash up avocado with a little lime juice, salt, and pepper and use it as a toast topping. Yum! Cream cheese and homemade tea jelly (like coconut oolong) is another favorite.

    I have been eating peanut butter and banana toast for so long, but never added honey. I’m intrigued! Great ideas here :)

      Yum, I don’t think I’ve ever tried the two together, I will soon though. :)

    Oh man this made me crave some toast! My Dad would make me peanut butter, honey and banana sandwiches every night. Time to bring it back!
