Peanut butter is a good source of plant protein and healthy fats. Bodybuilders favor peanut butter because it’s excellent for aiding muscle repair. Studies show that regularly eating peanut butter may even lower the risk of heart disease and various cancers. Choose a smooth peanut butter if you’re looking for a butter-like spread, or a chunky peanut butter if you want a more wholesome topping.
Jam may be made out of fruits, but sadly many store-bought jams aren’t healthy. This is due to additives such as extra sugar or pectin (a fruit-based starch, which can inhibit the body’s ability to absorb certain nutrients). You can make a much healthier jam by opting for your own recipe. This recipe for strawberry jam without pectin could be worth checking out. For an even healthier jam option, consider swapping out strawberries for blueberries and chia seeds.
Cottage cheese is a fantastic source of calcium, making it great for your bones. It’s also packed with protein to help with muscle repair and general body repair. You can spread cottage cheese on toast and eat it by itself, or you can combine it with other toppings like cherry tomatoes or even smoked salmon.
Bananas are great for gut health and are rich with potassium to aid muscle health and regulate blood pressure. Sliced bananas can go really well as a topping with jam or peanut butter. However, you can also add bananas as a topping by mashing them into a spread. Sprinkle this with some cinnamon or some chia seeds for extra flavor and nutrients.
Fried or scrambled eggs on toast could be another healthy way to kickstart your morning. Eggs are a rich source of protein that also contain many other vitamins that can support everything from heart health to eye health. You can use eggs as a topping on their own or you can combine with other healthy toppings like spinach or watercress.
This millennial favorite is actually incredibly nutritious. Avocados are packed with all kinds of vitamins and nutrients that support various organs around the body including the heart and the brain. They also contain healthy fats and proteins. You can eat avocado on toast on its own or combine it with other toppings like egg and smoked salmon.
If you’re looking for a unique savory spread to have on your morning toast, try some hummus. Hummus has many health benefits such as helping to fight inflammation and improve digestive health.
