Toast is a widespread option for the first meal of the day, but it is an excellent option for a quick snack, and with enough creativity, it can transform it into a healthy and nutritious lunch. It is a versatile food, easy to prepare, and quick to eat. But like any human being, I am convinced that you need variety in your choices. Here are some topping ideas for a delicious and nutritious toast.
Peanut Butter and Fig Toast
Gently spread a tablespoon of peanut butter on the toast and top it with sliced fresh figs. For extra sweetness, you can drizzle a teaspoon of natural honey over the figs.
Peanut Butter with Banana & Cacao Toast
Give the classical peanut butter and banana toast a twist by drizzling cocoa powder on top! You can replace the cocoa powder with cocoa nibs for a crunchy version of the toast.
Avocado Toast with Pepper Flakes
If you want to have a slightly spicy avocado toast, you can also add some red pepper flakes. Adjust the quantity of pepper flakes according to your desire and taste.
Almond Butter Fruit Toast
Use slices of fresh fruits (try focusing on the seasonal fruits) and pair them with smooth and natural almond butter. You’ll end up having a satisfying and nutritious toast combo.
A warm slice of toast topped with Hummus on a warm toast is a simple, delicious, and nutritious option for a quick bite. You’ll get a complete meal that contains healthy carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
Use your imagination to create colorful toasts! All you need is different kinds of fruit and veggie slices to create an eatable piece of art that both your eyes and tummy will be satisfied with.
Scrambled Egg and Spinach Toast
Spread a teaspoon of cream cheese on a warm slice of toast, add baby spinach, and top with the warm scrambled egg (use poached egg for a healthier option). As an alternative, you can replace the spinach with kale or arugula.
Avocado and Crunchy Chickpeas Toast
It is a nutrient-packed lunch option and so easy to prepare. Roast the chickpeas with a blend of spicy spices for a few minutes before adding them to the toast. The crunchy chickpeas will blend perfectly with the creamy mashed avocado.
Sloppy Joe’s Toast
If you have some leftover Sloppy Joe, then this is the chance to give it a twist and enjoy it on a warm slice of toast.

Only three steps away from a quick lunch: start by mashing a ripe avocado, use a spoon to spread it nicely on a slice of toast, finally finish by topping with the poached egg. Spice up the things a little with some red pepper flakes or some garlic powder.
Sweet Avocado Toast
Who said avocado couldn’t go well with fruits?! Get a sweet combo by putting mashed avocado and some fresh fruit slices on a toast, and you’ll definitely want to try this again!
