Cape Seed Eggy Toast

As some of you may recall, I posted a lovely healthy recipe back here, for grilled eggy toast.

I am trying to eat as supportively as possible for my up coming half marathon. Whole grains and protein.

And I love love love  really dense seedy bread. (Bum Bread, as my kids call it. I will leave that up to your imagination...)

And I need low GI to keep me going. Eggs. Eggs do it for me.

All these things combined the other day. Collided, no less!

We had a park date, the kids and I. We stopped on the way for a "bun" of some description, to take to the park for morning tea. (A "bun" is the generic term my children use for all yummy bread things. Sweet or savory, singular or shared: it's a bun.)

They picked Cheeseymite scrolls. And whist we were in there, I also bought a couple of Cape Seed loaves. (One for today, one for my freezer. As always - this family of mine goes through at least seven loaves of bread a week. The more I can get into my freezer, the better.)

I had forgotten how much I love the Cape Seed bread. And how good it is for my errrmmm, digestive health....(you get the drift here, I'm sure.)

Anyway, when we finally got home from a long morning of swings, climbing frames and flying foxes, we had a nice late lunch.

Of grilled eggy toast.


Made with.....Cape Seed Loaf.



Oh my. Delicious.

With cherry tomatoes on top.

Crunchy, eggy, grainy, seedy, nutty.

Divine.

So if you are up for a healthy brekky or lunch, this is the perfect combination.

Tell me.....do you have a perfect healthy lunch that is enjoyed by adults and kids alike? That's low in fat and high on energy? Low GI but high in fibre and high in taste? Tell me? Share?

    Yum....

    My boys love Baker's Delight rolls for lunch. The 8yo gets Cheesymite, the 6yo gets cheese & tomato (sometimes bacon & cheese) and the 3yo likes plain cheese.

    I love french toast or poached eggs on toast...eggs are delish. :)
