Build Your Own Toast

The fun thing about toast is that you don't need a lot of skills in the kitchen to make a great meal. Add some avocado or nut butter for the perfect spread, or some left over veggies and chicken for a hearty sandwich! Stick to healthy bread alternatives, homemade sauces and fresh toppings, and you got yourself a nutritious breakfast or sandwich for lunch.
