  • Summary

    Toast need not be boring: Adding part-skim ricotta cheese and a few tasty toppings transforms it into a simple, satisfying breakfast. Part-skim ricotta has significantly less sodium than cottage cheese, a common breakfast bite. Pecans are loaded with antioxidants.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons part-skim ricotta cheese
    • 1 slice (1/2 inch thick) whole-wheat rustic bread, toasted
    • 1/2 small ripe banana, sliced on the bias
    • 1 medium pitted date, preferably Medjool, thinly sliced
    • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped toasted pecans
    • 1 teaspoon honey, such as acacia
