Healthy and pretty breakfast, anyone? This is a good example of my weekend breakfast, when I can actually eat something not in my car. It’s wholesome, flavorful, filling, and you can pretty much do anything you want with this idea. I like the combination of flavors and textures, plus it takes about 3 minutes to make.
I use whole wheat sprouted grain bread (TJ’s) because I read that sprouted bread is healthier than regular whole wheat. Apparently the sprouting process kills off the phytic acid which blocks the minerals and nutrients from being absorbed, so now your body is absorbing all of the nutrients in the bread (iron, zinc, magnesium, etc.). Also, sprouting makes gluten and proteins easier to digest and it contains more fiber and whole food than regular bread.
I toast it and top it with a few swipes of creamy almond butter unsalted (TJ’s) and then top it with a sprinkle of sea salt. Then I decorate it with berries and a little drizzle of honey or agave.
