A friend of mine gave me a sourdough starter a couple of months ago, and I have been making sourdough on the reg ever since! It always turns out so delicious, and the process of preparing and baking the loaf is so therapeutic for me. So, with all this sourdough bread, I've been trying out different nourishing toast combinations for breakfast, lunch, and snacks, and I wanted to share 4 of my favorite Protein Powered Toasts You Need to Try with you!
Of all these toast combinations, my favorite combination is the first one with blueberries, tahini, honey, and cinnamon. It's sweet, juicy, and takes no more than 5 minutes to make! I love having it with a cup of hot coffee for a balanced breakfast.
When you make one of these 4 Protein Powered Toast combinations be sure to take a picture and tag me on social media. And let me know which one is your favorite!
Blueberry Yogurt Tahini Toast (vegetarian)
This sweet toast combo has been on my regular breakfast and snack rotation for several months. It's super simple, filling, rich in nutrition, and delicious.
Plain Greek yogurt
Frozen wild blueberries
The protein sources in the toast combo are Greek yogurt and tahini. The yogurt also provides beneficial probiotics and calcium, while tahini provides heart healthy fats and vitamin E. Additionally, frozen wild blueberries provide a healthy dose of vitamin C, fiber, magnesium, and anthocyanin, an antioxidant.
Tomato Basil Hummus Toast (vegan)
Hummus is something we always have stashed away in the fridge. It makes great snack with veggie dippers or a nice creamy addition to wraps, but I love it on toast! Add some fresh tomatoes and herbs and *chefs kiss*!
Salt and pepper
The plant-based protein source in this combo is hummus! Hummus is made from chickpeas, and in addition to protein provides fiber, iron, folate, and resistant starch. Additionally, tomatoes are rich in vitamin C and lycopene, an antioxidant.
Peanut Butter Banana Crunch Toast (vegetarian)
I didn't grow up on PB and J's, I grew up on PB banana sandwiches. This combo is a tribute to my childhood and all my fellow PB and sweet breakfast lovers out there.
The plant-based protein source in this combo is peanut butter! Like tahini, peanut butter contains vitamin E, heart healthy fats, and fiber in addition to protein. Both oats (in the granola) and ananas contain fiber and energizing carbohydrates. Bananas also contain potassium, a mineral and electrolyte. This toast combo is a great post-workout snack to refuel your muscles and glycogen stores!
EBTB Herby Avocado Salmon Toast
I gotta be honest... I don't understand the whole smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel combo. I just can't do it. But I CAN do herby avocado with leftover cooked salmon! Add some EBTB seasoning on top and your belly will be living the dream.
Leftover salmon (reheat on the stove)
The protein sources in this toast include salmon and yogurt. As mentioned above, yogurt is rich in nutrition. Both salmon and avocados contain heart healthy fats, and salmon is rich in vitamin D, vitamin B12, and iron. Avocados are also rich in dietary fiber.
