I’m the type of person that never skips meals, especially breakfast. I like to keep my meals simple but nutritious. With placement requiring early morning wakes, I have been indulging on Figs on Toast on most days. It’s quick and easy to make, but more importantly, it’s pack with a heck load of nutrients to kick start my day.
Prior to discovering this tasty treat, I was having your standard cheese and tomato toasties; poached eggs with avocado and asparagus; milk and oats etc… It all got a bit boring, and suddenly I thought, why don’t I give figs on toast a go (after seeing recipes featured everywhere and everyone banging on about how good figs are for you). So I gave it a try and loved it to bits.
Things on Toast:
- Wholemeal multi-grain bread x 2 slices
- Figs x 1
- Strawberries, Blueberries & Banana sliced
- Ricotta Cheese
- A dollop of honey
- Cinnamon x 1/4 teaspoon
- A sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds x handful
The first time I made figs on toast, it was literally just figs on toast with some ricotta. It tasted a bit bland, so the second time I made it, I added in some honey, cinnamon and sesame seeds. They boosted the flavor by heaps, but I felt like it was still missing some oomph, so the third time I made it, I added in blueberries, sliced strawberries and banana – and suddenly it was like absolute bliss and heaven!
If I don’t have this for breaky, this is my go-to-meal after coming home form placement. That, along with fresh coconut water is my kind of heaven haha 😀
