Whole Grain Toast with Goat Cheese and Raspberries

I went to the library today to pick up a few books that were on hold for me ( They may or may not be books about running.. ) While I was there I decided on impulse to go check out some of the cookbooks. I like some of the recipes I've posted on here so much that I just want to keep making them over and over. In case you haven't noticed, I have a bit of an addictive personality. At any rate, if I do that, I won't have anything new to post and that would be no fun.  So back to browsing the recipe section. I saw tuns of interesting cookbooks, but decided on three. If I had known one of them would be so filled with delicious recipes, I wouldn't have even bothered to take the other two. I know, I sound like a bad commercial. But I am seriously excited about all these newfound recipes.

The name of this cookbook, you ask? Power Foods, by the editors of whole foods. It just has so many recipes in it that use ingredients that I love to cook with- spinach, quinoa, oatmeal, ricotta, pitas, chickpeas, mangos.. I could go on.  I immediately made a grocery list consisting of pretty much every ingredient from all the recipes I thought looked good. This was not the saviest way of doing things. I should probably have picked out one or 2 recipes. Instead, i ended up with a huge costco size grocery bag filled,  and a slightly steeper then usual grocery bill. And worse yet, I left without buying essentials such as milk. Typical. Oh well, all is well, as I still have enough for my latte in the morning.

On to the easiest recipe of all times. Toast. It was actually listed as a breakfast item but I felt like having it for dinner alongside some soup. It would also be good with a green salad, or as is for breakfast.

2 slices Bread/Toast- I used flax plus
2 oz goats cheese
1/2 cup raspberries (I only had frozen ones so i just defrosted them slightly, actually making them more spreadable)
1 T honey (I omitted, as i didn't notice this before-however it doesn't really need it)

And, at the risk of stating the complete obvious,
Directions: Toast bread. Spread with goat cheese. Spoon the raspberries on top and mash, add honey if desired
