Toast Three Ways, Why We Like Bread + Our Favourite Bread Brands

Hello friends!

Today I am going through three toast combinations, that can be enjoyed as a healthy breakfast or snack.

Bread often gets a bad reputation but I personally love bread and think that it can be part of a healthy diet.

Reasons I like bread:

1. It is a great source of carbohydrates to provide the body with energy, as well as a source of fibre and other vitamins.

2. It can be quite cost effective.

3. Easy + quick!

4. Restricting or limiting bread ( especially if you love it!) can lead to cravings and binge eating.

5. Satisfying + versatile!

Now, when choosing bread, there are a few things I typically try to keep in mind. I try to keep it whole grain, so that you are in fact getting fibre. I also keep the ingredients minimal. You can read the ingredient list of bread and see 10 + ingredients, most of which are unnecessary. I also like a sourdough bread or bread using a sourdough culture, instead of yeast, which can be easier to digest. Lastly, I prefer an ancient wheat like spelt, rye or kamut, or a sprouted grain, which is also often easier to digest and generally more nutritious.

My favourite bread brands include: 

1. Ezekial Sprouted Grain Bread

2. Silver Hills Sprouted Grain Bread

3. Stone Mills Sprouted Grain Bread

4. Dimpflmeier 100% Rye Sourdough Bread

5. Shasha

6. Little Stream Bakery

Toronto Bakeries

St. John’s Bakery, sourdough bread

Cock-A-Doodle-Doo, gluten-free sourdough bread

Praire Boy Bakery

Now that you know why I love bread, and the brands I choose, here are three different toppings that you will commonly see me make.

1. Avocado Toast

How to make: 

Add 1/2 avocado sliced, with 1 tbsp hemp hearts, sea salt, a squeeze of lemon, a pinch of nutritional yeast + any spice or herb of choice (I added zaatar spice here).

2. Coconut Cream + Jam

How to make:

Spread sunflower seed butter as a base, top with a spoonful of coconut cream and a dollop of your favourite jam.

3. Nut Butter + Fruit

How to make: 

Spread almond butter as a base, and top with sliced apple, pear + banana. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Now, I would love to hear from you! What are your favourite bread brands? Do you have toast toppings you love? Let me know in the comments!
