If you ever find yourself looking for new ways to spice up your toast, try adding some flavorful toppings such as pickled onions and goat cheese. The two flavors compliment each other perfectly and make for a delicious meal. Along with the sweet and tangy flavors, this toast comes with some health benefits. Avocado, being the base of this toast, has a lot of nutritional value. Avocados provide multiple vitamins including thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin. These vitamins help our bodies convert food into energy so we can keep moving throughout the day (WebMD). Goat cheese is also a great addition to this avocado toast, bringing other health benefits to the table. Goat cheese is made from goat’s milk and contains different fats that can have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects (Kubala, 2018).
