So, I'm not about to tell you how to make toast. I think we've all got that under control. However, the longer we're in the home, the more I see how versatile 'a vehicle' toast can be.
We've tried out all sorts of different toppings to make toast for lunch a little more tasty, easy on the eye and without the children knowing it - nutritious!
I have my go-to bread that I always buy for myself, but with the children I tend to change it up so they have white, wholemeal and seeded.
Our week in toast looks a little like this:
Sunday - Mashed banana
Banana is not only great for your daily dose of potassium but also packed with Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and magnesium.
Monday - Smashed avocado with cottage cheese
Avocado is unique in that instead of its other fruity friends who are loaded with carbohydrates, avocado is filled with healthy fats. One avocado provides 25% of your daily Vitamin K needs too which is great for healthy blood and bones.
Tuesday - Hummus
Chickpeas are a great source of fibre and protein too.
Wednesday - Peanut Butter (or any nut butter) with banana slices
Peanut butters can be loaded with sugar and salt to modify taste. We only ever buy Whole Earth nut butters which are great source of protein and fats.
Thursday - Pureed apple with apple slices and cinnamon
Cinnamon is a powerful antioxidant that aids in controlling blood sugar and is high in fibre and calcium.
Friday - Warm chocolate spread with frozen mixed berries
Berries are loaded with antioxidants are low in natural sugars and help fight inflammation.
Saturday - Left over homemade pizza sauce with feta cheese
Tomatoes supply us with vitamin A which supports immunity.
