There's no denying that many of us include toast as part of our breakfast routine.

While toast, and many of it's usual toppings are not a part of the Smart for Life diet, we know that many will indulge in this popular morning snack anyway.

So, let's explore how you can make your toast just a little bit healthier next time.

  1. Go Italian with Bruschetta

Slice up some tomatoes, onions, and basil for the perfect morning bruschetta. Finish with a very small amount of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and you have an incredibly tasty, but healthier alternative to your morning toast!

  1. Low Calorie Cottage Cheese

Cottage Cheese has come a long way in the last few years. With protein-packed, low calorie options now available in stores, there's no reason why you can't use some to spice up your morning toast. YUM!

  1. Hummus & Toast? Yes Please.

You've probably tried hummus on crackers or perhaps nan bread. But what about your toast? Hummus is also high and protein and pairs perfectly with a nice piece of toast. Try it next time!

  1. Avacados Strike Again

Another ingredient that's gained huge popularity in the last few years. Avacados are full of great ingredients like protein, fiber and folate just to name a few. With just a sprinkle of salt and pepper, you'll love avacado on toast. It looks amazing too.

  1. Peanut Butter & Banana

Another classic combination, but perhaps not often used on toast. Use a healthy butter with chopped banana for a yummy potassium rich breakfast.

  1. Eggs on Toast

Ok, you've probably tried this one before but it's still worth noting. Although healthiest in a hard boiled state, even scrambled eggs can contain a great source of protein and B Vitamins.
