Happy almost Independence Day and official Toast Tuesday!

4th of July is upon us and it’s time for some fun in the sun, barbecuing, and fireworks! Start your morning off right with this adorable American flag toast! I originally saw this toast idea floating around Pinterest last week and just had to make it. The only problem? I’m deathly allergic to the red & blue ingredients… Booooo (more on the allergy subject later)! I can’t have white toast, no fun! I decided I would make myself a star shaped slice of toast with some PB so I can join in on the fun when I make this for my friends tomorrow. Back to the American flag cuteness, whoever thought of this is a genius. What a cute idea for kids… and adults!


I’ll be taking tomorrow off to celebrate the holiday and I wish everyone a fun and safe 4th of July! Be smart and wear your sunscreen, Skin Cancer does not discriminate.

Patriotic Toast
serves 1 

1 slice whole wheat bread
1 Tbsp nonfat cream cheese
1 Tbsp strawberry jam
9 blueberries
4 banana slices (halved)

Toast the bread and spread evenly with cream cheese. Place the blueberries in 3 rows of 3. Spread the strawberry jam over the rest of the toast and create stripes with the banana halves.

    • Oh my gosh he is the first person I have heard that has the same allergy! It is such a bummer sometimes, especially because blueberries are in tons of skin and haircare products because of their antioxidants! Tricky!

  4. Hi Catherine. I stumbled on your website/blog 2 nights ago during a bout of insomnia. Thank you!!! Your story and diligence has inspired me to take control of my bad habits. I stocked up at the store yesterday and started with a green smoothie and overnight oatmeal today. Thank you for your transparency and honest recounting of your successes and trials. I look forward to learning more from you and hope in a few months (or whatever it takes!) I will be able to say hello to a healthier me!! If you ever doubt you are having a positive influence – throw those thoughts right out with the trash! Bridget

  7. I just recently discovered your blog and love it! I’m wondering about Toast Tuesdays: do you stay away from toast (and all bread) the remaining six days of the week, or are Toast Tuesdays a fun break to jazz up some bread for the day?
