Another Tip-Top Toast Post

As you can see, all of us here on #CWE love our toast and I have another epic combo for you. 

This has toasted sunflower seed bread, avocado, a hard boiled egg and salsa. Avocado and egg are an amazing combo with protein and healthy fats that keep you full and fueled (not to mention it tastes delicious!)

Pre-Workout Toast Noms

In honor of #ToastTuesday, we wanted to share with you one of our favorite pre-workout meals. For those early morning sessions, it can be kind of hard to tolerate anything other than a bread & [nut] butter type of meal. It takes 5 minutes to prepare & keeps us fueled throughout the entire practice. Can’t beat that.

This morning, I whipped up one of our favorites- almond butter, blueberries, and chia seeds. Also pictured is the jar of almond butter for added effect (did it work?) But actually, Trader Joe’s almond butter is a w e s o m e. Who wants to pay $12 for a jar of nut butter that will be gone in less than 2 weeks? We’ll pass on that one. This one costs about $6 & does the trick.

Toast Tuesday: August 4

Ok so we’re trying something new: Toast Tuesday. This way, you can expect a new & unique toast recipe every Tuesday (Make the Most of Your Toast) cuz let’s face it, #webesnackin.

But first, we need to give credit where credit is due. The ever-so-clever name of our category, Make the Most of Your Toast (all in favor of ™’ing that?), was named by Weezie’s teammate, roommate, co-captain, and friend Taylor Craig. Bravo, Craig. You’ve done it again.

The first weekly Toast Tuesday features some classics:

-Almond butter on Ezekiel toast, topped with whole flax seeds & unsweetened coconut shavings (ideal scenario: ‘nanas on top)

-1/2 smashed avocado on Ezekiel toast, topped with cherry tomatoes & a poached egg

That is all.

make the most of your toast

seriously the easiest and best tasting breakfasts ever….and oh so simple too.

  1. Grab some healthy, whole grain bread & toast it…we chose Ezekiel bread & english muffins for these pics
  2. Pick a base. We usually use some kind of a nut butter or plain greek yogurt. Avocado and/or olive oil are other really good bases for a more savory toast option.
  3. Chop up some fruit….seriously almost any fruit would work & i promise it will taste good
  4. Add some fun toppings: unsweetened coconut shreds, honey, chia seeds, hempseed, fresh jam, goji berries, mashed up nuts, bee pollen, herbs, spices….anything?…
  5. ENJOY

Below are the “recipes” for the pictured toasts…we will keep ya updated when we make some more especially delicious creations

Here I just smeared avocado on an Ezekiel english muffin…added black pepper and chia seeds. I eat the sunny side up egg on top of the toast…takes maybe 5 minutes to make and this one definitely keeps me full the longest.
