This Sunflower Seed Butter Toast recipe is stupid simple, but absolutely delicious. I hesitate to even call it a “recipe,” really, since it’s just a few ingredients on toast. I suppose if you made the bread from scratch, this might qualify as a real recipe, but I digress… I included this on here because when I first went vegan, it was my “comfort meal.” It was the very first thing I ate every single day, no matter where I was: toast, nut/seed butter, and fresh fruit. Why am I including it on the blog? Well, I get so many “What I eat in a day” requests, and the truth is, it varies, except when it comes to breakfast.
Over the past few months, I’ve subbed sunflower seed butter for almond butter after reading up on how almond butter might make it tough on our bees, but the concept is still the same. I’m delighted to report that sunflower seed butter is not only more sustainable, it’s, in my opinion, way more delicious!
One question I get a lot is whether I believe in eating breakfast or have ever tried intermittent fasting. Here’s where I come out on that—I don’t care? After battling with diets and food issues for more than half my life, I’ve come to the realization that the single most important thing you can do for your health (both mental and physical) is to find something that helps you stick to good habits. I go to bed each night looking forward to my Sunflower Seed Butter Toast and depriving myself of that in the morning is going to do me no favors in the long run, trust me.
Whether you eat breakfast or not, this Sunflower Seed Butter Toast is a perfect snack, easy lunch, or even or a light dinner (I usually double it for dinner, if I’m in a pinch for time).
