Wellhaus’s Dietitian, Leah Silberman speaks to betches about Three Toast Options That Are Healthy

She’s quoted saying:

Grown-Up PB&J

This is the grown-up gourmet version of peanut butter and jelly. The figs replace sugary Smucker’s while providing some fiber and a good source of potassium. Peanut butter is not just a kid’s food, we swear. It’s a great source of protein and healthy fat, as long as you’re not standing at your fridge eating spoonful after spoonful..

Ingredients:

1 slice of 100% whole grain bread or Ezekiel sprouted bread

2 tablespoons natural peanut butter

1-2 figs, sliced

Dash of cinnamon for an antioxidant boost

Optional: Sprinkle of chia or hemp seeds

 

Avo Toast with a Tovita Twist

We all have our fave version of avocado toast, but we like to add an egg on top to make it a balanced, protein-packed meal. The chilli peppers actually boost your metabolism, so they basically just burn up all your carbs.

Ingredients:

1 slice of 100% whole grain bread or Ezekiel sprouted bread

¼ avocado, mashed with a fork

1 egg, fried or poached (per preference)

Dash of red chili peppers

Dash of Himalayan sea salt

Dash of garlic powder for antioxidant boost

 

Ricotta Be Kidding Me

Part-skim ricotta is a good source of protein and calcium. Fun fact: pistachios are the highest fiber, lowest calorie nut. Get crackin’.

Ingredients:

1 slice of 100% whole grain bread or Ezekiel sprouted bread

2 tablespoons part skim ricotta cheese

1 tablespoon crushed pistachio nuts

1 teaspoon honey
