Toast 3 Ways

But not just any toasts… the kind that are loaded with nutrients and exploding with flavor… a sweet nut-butter based one, a protein packed hummus toast, and of course, avocado toast. Plus, toppings, toppings, toppings!

They all take less than 5 minutes to make and are exciting in their own way to fit your sweet, savory, and salty cravings. Oh, and did I mention, they are healthy, balanced, and absolutely delicious? If you like easy meals (or totally awesome snacks), this list is made for you, so read on!
