Ingredients you’ll need for egg toast
A few eggs, vegetables, and spices are all you need to make delicious egg toast for breakfast! Here’s more details:
Eggs: You’ll need 4 to 5 large eggs.
Vegetables: I used a bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, and green onions, but I have ideas of different veggies you can use below.
Crumbled feta cheese: Opt for a block of feta in the brine and crumble it at home instead of choosing the pre-crumbled kind. These tend to be dry instead of creamy, and lack the robust flavor of blocks of feta cheese.
Parsley: A few tablespoons of chopped flat-leaf parsley add a fresh herbal element.
How to make egg toast
I am all about a no-fuss breakfast recipe, so this simple baked egg toast is part of my regular rotation! Here’s how to make it:
Prepare the egg and vegetable mixture. To a medium mixing bowl, add 4 to 5 large eggs, kosher salt, ½ teaspoon paprika, and ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes or Aleppo-style pepper. Whisk, then add 1 chopped bell pepper, ½ cup halved or chopped cherry tomatoes, green onions, ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese, 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Add eggs and vegetables to the bread. Brush a sheet pan lightly with olive oil and arrange 4 slices of bread in it. Divide the egg mixture among the bread, making sure all the slices have some vegetables and feta cheese on top.
Bake the bread. Bake on the center rack of your oven heated to 375°F for about 15 minutes. The eggs should be cooked and the vegetables should have softened slightly.
Egg toast loves company
A single egg toast makes a super satisfying and healthy breakfast, because it’s loaded with veggies, a little fat from the feta and protein from the eggs, but if you need a little something extra, add a drink.
Why not make a refreshing green juice or creamy tahini date shake to go along with it? A simple fruit salad is an easy and welcome addition to morning meals, too. It doesn’t have to be fancy.
Egg toast is a great way to feed a crowd for Sunday brunch. You can easily double this recipe, and pop it in the oven. Whip up the drinks and salad while it bakes. No standing over a stove making a couple of pancakes at a time.
If you are planning for company and need a gluten-free option, serve my pumpkin parfait. It’s another healthy breakfast (or dessert) idea to add to the rotation. Sometimes the conversation keeps coming especially when the food and drinks are flowing!
Don’t be afraid to turn brunch into an afternoon affair! Serve your guests — a boozy coffee drink beloved in Spain, and many other Spanish speaking countries.
Egg toast anyway you want it!
Feel free to tweak the vegetables and spices to use what you have on hand. I love how customizable this egg toast breakfast recipe is! Here are some ideas:
If you’re an onion lover, swap out the green onions for very finely chopped red onions. You’ll get more of a delicious “oniony” bite.
Use finely chopped firm Roma or on the vine tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes. Tomatoes that are too ripe and mushy will make the toast soggy.

Exercise helps to nourish skin cells by increasing blood flow that carries oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Besides the conventional benefits, studies have revealed a link between skin health and exercise.
Deep skin benefits of exercise
At a molecular level, skin cells contain mitochondria. Mitochondria are organelles that produce the energy necessary for a cell’s survival. The mitochondria play an important role in making a chemical known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is needed for the processes that restore skin cells, provide healing and rejuvenation, and aid in decreasing wrinkles.1
With age, ATP production declines, and the skin’s metabolic function slows. During exercise, ATP is continuously synthesized and broken down. This action stimulates several mechanisms, including glucose uptake into cells and improvements to mitochondrial function.2
While aging is inevitable, how we age can be managed. Evidence leads to the idea that exercise may have a positive effect on aging by improving impaired mitochondrial function.2
Exercise and wound healing
A comparison of older age athletes and adults who lived a sedentary lifestyle highlighted that those who were athletes had better skin conditions.3 Apart from maintaining and improving skin health, exercise promotes wound healing.
Older exercisers (athletes) were examined for the wound healing rate compared to non-exercisers.4 The speed at which wound healing occurred in the non-exercise group was considerably slower; The athletes had a higher rate of recovery.4
Further studies examined exercise as an intervention for adults with venous leg ulcers.5 The exercise group, in conjunction with standard care, was shown to produce more positive outcomes relating to quality of life and skin repair.5
Exercise prevents skin injury
Exercise improves the skin’s ability to retain moisture.6 Having moisturized skin helps to protect the skin from cuts and other injuries that could lead to infections.
It was found that after a single high-intensity exercise session, the skin’s outer layer (stratum corneum) had an increased hydration concentration.6 Furthermore, long-term endurance exercise improved the thickness of the stratum corneum, adding to the penetrability of the skin.6
Exercise for skin health and prevention
The research discussed demonstrates links between exercise, skin health, prevention from injury, and a higher quality of life. While the studies did not specify one activity over another, a clear takeaway is the importance of incorporating exercise into your lifestyle to maintain and uphold healthy skin.

From Monday, October 24, Apple Fitness Plus will be available to anyone with an iPhone, whether you’ve bought one of the or not, Apple has confirmed.
What’s more, anyone who has bought an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV since September will be eligible for a three-month free Apple Fitness Plus trial. If you’ve never used the service, you’ll be able to sign up for a free month-long trial from Monday.
Anyone running iOS 16.1 in one of the 21 countries where the service is offered will find Apple Fitness Plus fully integrated into their iPhone from October 24. You’ll be able to access the workouts from the middle tab in the Fitness app. iPhone users will have access to the entire service featuring more than 3,000 studio-style workouts and meditations.
In the Fitness app, iPhone users will be able to see the progress of their move ring — the red ring on the Apple Watch that shows how many active calories have been burned. In the classes, users will be able to see this ring on the screen, as they work to close it during the workout. You can also expect onscreen guidance, an interval timer, and estimated calories burned, based on your height and weight. (That’s information you provide Fitness when setting up the app.)
What are the best Apple Fitness Plus classes to try?
One of the benefits of Apple Fitness Plus is it’s variety. There are HIIT, yoga, meditation, core, strength, Pilates, dance, cycling, treadmill, rowing, and cooldown classes on offer. When you log into the service, you’ll be able to see new workouts, Artist Spotlight collections (these show workouts with playlists from chosen artists) and the Time to Walk and Time to Run episodes.
There’s a lot to choose from and as a fitness editor, one of my favorite things about Apple Fitness Plus is the ability to add workouts to the My Library section of the app to save, download, and do later. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out the Collections, which have a series of workouts based on a goal.
Whatever you’re into, whether you work out at home, or in the gym, if you’ve got an iPhone, you can get one of the for free for a month, and that’s worth shouting about.
After the free trial, Apple Fitness Plus is available as a subscription service for $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year and can be shared with up to five other family members. Read our to find out more.
What if you’ve already got an Apple Watch?
If you’ve just bought the Apple Watch Series 8 or the Apple Watch Ultra, or any of the best Apple Watches, you’ll also be eligible for a three-month free trial of Apple Fitness Plus.
Unlike Apple Fitness Plus for iPhone users, the metrics on the screen will be slightly different, showing the progress of all of your rings, and your heart rate. One thing to note is that if you do own an Apple Watch, if you choose to do an Apple Fitness Plus class without your watch, the Move ring on the screen will not affect your Move progress on the Watch. For now, Apple is keeping those two things separate.
What else is new?
If you’re already an Apple Fitness Plus user, not much will change, but there are some new things coming to the app on Monday. On October 24, a new Taylor Swift Artist Spotlight will launch — new workouts featuring music by Taylor Swift will appear across workout types including Core, Cycling, Dance, HIIT, Pilates, Rowing, Strength, Treadmill, and Yoga.
Apple is also launching a Yoga for Every Runner workout program, featuring US ultramarathon runner, Scott Jurek. The 10-minute yoga classes, led by Fitness Plus trainer Jessica Skye, are designed to act as a warm-up or cooldown for runners. “Whether people are new to running or seasoned veterans, I hope these 10-minute workouts in this program on Fitness Plus will help users feel more confident and comfortable incorporating yoga into their training and recovery,” Jurek said.
