Recipe Time! Strawberry Peanut Butter Toast
Okay, so this isn’t so much a recipe as it is me just sharing this idea with you, but I’ll write it out in recipe form anyway.
As Erik mentioned in his last post, breakfast is an often skipped meal, which is a shame since it’s an important way to get your day started and also has lots of yummy foods. Even faster than French toast is regular toast, which can be kind of boring to eat every day, but luckily there are lots of ways to easily fancy it up.
I discovered this combination a couple of years ago and it quickly became one of my favorite fast, weekday breakfast foods. It takes no more time than regular toast and tastes super yummy.
Strawberry Peanut Butter Toast:
- 1 or 2 slice(s) bread of your choice
- Peanut butter (I find smooth works best for this)
- 1-4 fresh strawberries
Toss your bread in the toaster. While the bread it toasting, slice your strawberries into rounds. Once the toast is done, spread on your peanut butter and top with the sliced strawberries. Eat and enjoy!
I cannot emphasize enough how yummy this is. It helps if your strawberries are in season and tasty on their own, but even mediocre strawberries elevate this toast to new levels. I’ve also used the same procedure with fresh blueberries. Just plop them on top of the peanut butter. It can be a bit tricky to eat, but is still really good.
While simple, this toast is also a really good way to start your day, from a dietary standpoint. The wheat of the bread and the peanuts of the peanut butter combine to create a complete protein, which will help get you going in the morning. Protein can also help you feel full longer. The strawberries will give you a bit of sugar and sweetness, which can help make the meal feel more satisfying. Besides, fruit is an important part of a balanced diet. Pretty much everything you need to help get your body going in the morning (protein, carbs, sugar) is in this one, easy to make breakfast food.
