Let’s explore the many wonders of toast! It is a versatile (and affordable) breakfast/mid-morning meal option that can range from simple to gourmet, depending on your mood.
It all starts with a nice crispy bread as your base. My all-time favorite type of bread is sourdough. For those of you that opt for gluten free options, but don’t actually have celiac disease, sourdough is an incredible alternative. The fermentation process makes it gut-friendly and easy to digest. The wild yeast and bacteria found in sourdough starter work to effectively break down some of the carbohydrates and proteins found in flour. One of those carbs it breaks down is fructan, which is typically the most problematic for people with gluten sensitivity. Rye bread is another great option, as it is naturally has less gluten than other flours. It’s high in fiber and great for gut health as well. Here are a few of my favorite breads:
