My Green Veggie Power Toast

Hello Substantial Living!

As I’m coming off the weekend with new brunch ideas and having eating delicious lunch in Napa at Bistro Don Giovanni, my latest creation is a bombardment of green veggies on a fresh piece of bread.  Imagine a powered version of the always-loved (but often over-priced!) avocado toast with roasted asparagus, scallions, persian cucumbers, etc.  So here’s my latest healthy recipe!


Vegan-Friendly Version

  • 1 TBS of finely chopped scallions
  • 1/2 chopped avocado
  • 2-3 EVOO- roasted asparagus
  • 1 TBS finely chopped persian cucumbers
  • 2-3 finely sliced radishes
  • Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon of EVOO
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 TBS of my SUBSTANTIAL Pickled Achar

If you wanted to add some extra protein that is not plant-based, I recommend a few different delicious additions:

  • Deviled egg side topped 1 tsp of my probiotic LONGEVITY Achar
  • Poached egg on top of toast
  • Fried egg on top of toast
  • Smoked trout on top of toast

All of these are really really yummy and SO good for our health honoring nature.  Here’s why:


  • Fermentation preserves the food, and creates beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics.
  • Probiotics are scientifically proven to be beneficial for a naturally good gut health as well as brain health.
  • Greens such as asparagus, scallions, cucumber, radishes, avocados are the REAL deal- filled with a variety of vitamins and nutrients powering a healthy mind and body.  I love eating minimally- processed foods because keeping  aligned with natural processes is the most authentic form of respect and connection we can have to our environment.
