Toast Toppings!

I don’t know about you but I love toast.

And sometimes I like to get a little fancy with it too? 4 toastsWhat’s your favorite toast topper?  This week I created a few different toast topping combos.  MY toast topping started with toasted Deland Bakery’s Oatmeal bread.  Talk about simple ingredients… Deland Bakery has got that covered: oatmeal flour, filtered water, sea salt and baking powder. It is not gluten free but it appears low FODMAP.   Tolerance to oats can vary–so certainly feel free to sub in your favorite bread option or try your tolerance to just one slice.

I always try to add a little produce to every meal, some protein too, and then maybe a little unexpected ingredient. Here’s a few of my toast topper combos that I came up with…

Toast topper #1:  Carrot Cake: Shredded carrots, vanilla infused lactose free cream cheese (I use Green Valley Lactose free Cream cheese and add a drizzle of little vanilla extract….easy peasy), chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Did you know per Monash University low FODMAP app, carrots do not have any FODMAPs?carrot cake toastToast topper #2: Veggie and cheese: Red pepper, cilantro, lemon zest, crushed red pepper and a little ground pepper too, and a scoop of lactose free cottage cheese! (I used Lactaid brand lactose free cottage cheese) Mmmm!

Oh… and a little drizzle of pure maple syrup.banana toastI hope my toast topper ideas inspire you to step up your toast game! Ha! 🙂

My Way Better Snack Chip and Sprouting post stirred up some fun comments and many of you wanted the chips! But, I had to select only one winner and the randomly selected winner was: Lisa H. and Lisa has been notified by email.

Don’t worry….I will be doing another give-a-way very very soon!
