Three Way Toat

Topping your toast with these healthy ideas is a perfect way to incorporate protein and your daily dose of fruit. This breakfast is exceptional if you only have a limited amount of time.

classic avocado on toast


  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • A pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice of wholemeal bread


  1. Start by making the avocado filling. Add the avocado, lemon juice, salt and pepper to a bowl and mash with a fork. Put aside. Toast the bread
  2. If desired, poach the egg. Start by filling a saucepan a saucepan with water and put on medium heat. Once boiling, add the egg and wait 2-3 minutes.
  3. Garnish your toast with the avocado, then add the egg.

Toast topped with berries


  • 1 cup berries of your choice
  • 1 slice of wholemeal bread


  1. Toast the bread. Pour all the berries into a saucepan over medium-high heat. If it starts to produce too much steam, reduce the heat.
  2. Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon. After five minutes, the berries should release their juice. Once the berry jam has reached the desired consistency, pour it over the toast.

if you choose a smaller fruit, such as raspberries or blueberries, the mixture will be much runnier than a cherry or strawberry jam (which tends to have bits of berry in it)
