This is a simple snack that I had to share with YU—I am eating it now, and I think someone else should be experiencing the deliciousness, too. It’s not really a recipe, but I love it and YU will, too. Raw almond butter, coconut oil and sliced strawberries on Ezekiel toast—done.
I am one of those people that can’t eat really eat gluten—I am pretty sure I am allergic to it. Sneezing, bloating, headache… yeah. But every now and then, I want a piece of crunchy toast. And when I do “go there,” it’s with a slice (or two) of protein-rich, sprouted Ezekiel bread. Since the grains in the Ezekiel bread are sprouted, it helps with assimilation and digestibility, and keeps the dreaded, swollen “gluten-belly” away. I still sneeze though sometimes. One day, I’ll be able to say goodbye forever, but for now… every few months is ok, right?
If you aren’t a Celiac sufferer, and if you aren’t sensitive to gluten at all, this is an easy snack that I think plant-eaters should get into the rotation—it’s like a PBJ, but with alflatoxin-free almond butter and real berries versus sugary jam/jelly.
Note: The Food for Life/Ezekiel brand didn’t ask me to write this. I just wanted YU to know about this bread if you didn’t already. You can find it in the freezer section at your health food store. It contains 18 amino acids, including 9 essential amino acids and it’s a great source of fiber and nutrients. If you “do” bread regularly and/or are looking for additional (and easy) plant-based protein sources, go the Ezekiel route for extra nutrients, and taste. I love the variety of flavors they have, too…
In the photo, I have toasted some sesame Ezekiel bread and then spread some unrefined coconut oil on each slice. Then I spread some raw almond butter on top and added a pinch of fine ground sea salt. Then topped with fresh strawberries. I bet sliced bananas are tasty, too.
