Protein Rich Toast Toppers


As a nutritionist I strongly believe in starting the day with a protein rich breakfast.

Protein is a macronutrient that keeps your blood sugar levels stable, which reduces energy drops and sugar cravings throughout the day. Protein is also the most satiating part of your meal, helping to keep you full for hours after you have eaten.

A lot of people start their day with a bowl of cereal, oats, toast, or fruit and this is all “healthy” but often doesn’t keep people feeling energised and satiated for very long. Adding the right toppings to your breakfast can make all the difference!

Here are some of my favourite protein rich toast toppers:

Peanut butter, blueberries & chia seeds

  • 1 tbsp peanut butter (no added sugar or oil)
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • pinch cinnamon

Hummus, sliced tomato & sprouts

  • 2 tbsp hummus
  • ½ tomato, sliced
  • 2 tsp sunflower seeds
  • small handful of sprouts

Ricotta, sliced fig & hemp seeds

  • 2 tbsp ricotta
  • 1 fig, sliced
  • 2 tsp hemp seeds

Tahini, sliced banana & walnuts

  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • ½ banana, sliced
  • 2 tbsp crushed walnuts
  • pinch cinnamon
