Toast is always a quick, easy and healthy option for any meal. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack toast is always a good go-to. We all have our favorite go-to’s, one of mine is definitely toast, however, I try not to eat it too often.

Toast can get boring pretty quick. So why not add some excitement to your toast life! Ha-ha. Two of my favorite foods are cheese (C’mon who doesn’t love cheese?!) and fruit, so today I decided to pair them together with some of my favorite bread, greens and balsamic vinegar and made it a delicious nutritious meal.
