When was the last time you heard gluten-free and toast in the same sentence? I silently laugh as I write this, as this is no laughing matter for a Celiac. But gluten-free and toast are often not heard together until we get creative. My Gluten-Free Avocado Pear Toast hits the gluten-free toast spot for sure!
As a Celiac and gluten-free healthy foodie, I have to improvise. I have to change it up. I have to re-create the wheel, gluten-free. We all do.
I often hear clients tell me that it’s just not the same. And they’re right! It’s not the same. But just as if you were to try baking with almond flour or chickpea flour each would also taste different and not the same. But it doesn’t mean either of them is bad or taste bad. In this scenario, I tell my clients to try and open up their palates and experience whole foods the way mother nature intended. I tell my clients not to expect everything to be the same or taste the same. The trick is to just find what you love within your new limitations. Follow what makes you feel good.
Making my Gluten-Free Avocado Pear Toast on rice cakes make me think of just that. It’s not the same but it’s really good and totally healthy.
P.S. This is super easy to make too!

I love using Lundberg’s organic brown rice cakes! They are certified gluten-free and pretty tasty as far as a rice cake goes. I always go with unsalted and add my own salt.
