Beautiful Breakfast Toasts

Feed your breakfast inspiration with this week’s special recipe feature: 6 healthy breakfast toasts. All of these toasts pack a hearty dose of fiber and protein, and many also include heart-healthy fats. Today’s featured toast is the perfect combination of savory and sweet flavors. It’s light and refreshing and works well with any type of berry in season. Berries are particularly high in ellagic acid, a phytochemical that has been shown to have strong cancer-protective properties.
