I have a confession: I LOVE TOAST. I make some form of toast almost everyday. It’s become one of my favorite quick & easy snacks or breakfasts. To keep things fun, I’m always getting creative with my different toast toppings. One of my favorite gluten-free bread companies Little Northern Bakehouse recently sent me some of their bread. So I decided to share with you some of my favorite gluten-free, plant-based toast combos. Plus some toast building tips to show you how toast can be the star of your meal!

WHY I love Little Northern Bakehouse for my toast building:

All their products are gluten-free, plant-based, non-GMO, & contain whole food ingredients. They are also all certified Glyphosate Residue Free. Glyphosate is a carcinogen & extremely toxic to our health. So, the fact that all of LBH products carry the Bio-Checked Non Glyphosate Certified seal is a major win in my book!

Now let’s get to TOASTIN’!
