Did you dismally ditch toast for breakfast when you decided it was time to cut carbs and lose weight?

Well, turns out you can still raise your glass and toast toast if you want to. You can have your bread and lose weight too, if it’s of a 100 percent whole grain, minimally processed and sprouted variety (like Ezekiel brand bread) that’s bursting with belly-blasting fiber, protein and nutrients.

These healthy, simple and satisfying breakfast toasts feature an optimal balance of fiber, protein and healthy fats that will help to fuel your day the right way while triggering energy, good spirits and weight loss.

Spicy Sautéed Spinach, Garlic and Poached Egg Toast

1 slice sprouted whole grain bread

1 egg

1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp olive oil

3 garlic cloves, sliced thinly

3 to 4 handfuls fresh spinach

½ tsp fresh lemon juice

Coarse salt, to taste

Cracked black pepper, to taste

Red chili flakes or hot sauce, to taste

Toast bread. Set water to boil in a large saucepan. Once the water starts to boil, lower it to a very gentle simmer.

While waiting for the water to boil, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic slices into the skillet and sauté until fragrant and lightly browned, about 1 minute. Use a slotted spoon to scoop the fried garlic onto the toast and return the hot skillet to the stove, re-oiling if necessary. Raise the heat to medium-high and add the spinach to the skillet, tossing and stirring until the spinach softens and wilts, about 3-4 minutes.

While the spinach is cooking, carefully crack an egg into a small cup or ramekin. Stir vinegar into the lightly simmering pot of water, and then carefully tip the egg into the simmering water. Poach the egg for about 4 minutes.

Use a slotted spoon to scoop the wilted spinach over the garlic on the toast. Sprinkle it lightly with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Then use a slotted spoon to carefully lift the poached egg out of the water and onto the toast. Sprinkle with salt, black pepper, a few pinches of red chili flakes or squirts of hot sauce.
