5 Quick Ways to Spice Up Your Breakfasts


5. Fun with Toast

You don’t have to have boring old toast with jam! Try different nut butters, preserves, even sliced, fresh fruit to make your morning toast something you look forward to. Here are a few toast combinations that I like in the morning:

  • Cashew butter + banana
  • Tahini + sliced, fresh strawberries
  • Peanut butter + apple butter
  • Almond butter + cinnamon + thinly-sliced apple

If you like a more savory breakfast, toast is your friend! Try some of these ideas:

  • Hummus or your favorite bean spread with a big slice of tomato
  • Spread avocado onto your toast with a knife, top with salt and pepper, tomato, sliced onion, and capers
  • Parsley walnut pesto topped with baby spinach
  • Make a to-go breakfast sandwich with pan-fried tofu, fresh veggies, and avocado

What are some of your favorite, quick breakfast ideas? I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments!

Next time you're preparing your oatmeal, try to add some chopped chocolate, and (when it's almost ready) a teaspoon of marmalade (orange, apricot and mixed berries are my favourites). Might not be the healthiest version possible, but sometimes it's just what you need ;)

I used to skip breakfast altogether or sometimes get it through a drive-thru window. Now I drink breakfast shakes in the morning. To spice them up, sometimes I make them with coffee for something like a coffee latte. Other times, I mix in blueberry matcha tea powder and that, not only kicks up the flavor experience, but also the antioxidant value.

Yes, Mrs S., I think it would. Some breakfasts can take you happily through 'til evening.No point in eating calories you don't like.Anyway who can prevent your doing what you want in this matter?

Following the link to delicious recipes, I realised, with an evil cackle, that my sister would be screaming in horror at all the enormous plastic spiders.
