Don't Fear the Avocado
For many years the avocado has been getting a bad wrap, believing that the high fat content was bad for you. Not true, for starters we need fats, healthy fats, and avocados can offer us a great way to get the fats we need due to their nutrient rich profile. They offer up to 20 different vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, along with vitamins K,C,E,B, and potassium. You can slice them, dice them, mash them, stuff them, put them in salads, in sandwiches, make dips, dressings, on toast (this is one of my favorites). Any way you choose to eat an avocado is the right way. Here I have shared avocado toast made as a breakfast meal, but hey, breakfast lunch or dinner, so many good things to put on top or underneath the avocado.
My Recipe here:
First choose a very healthy grainy bread, if you are gluten free I used a Whole Foods Prarie Bread with seeds. I mashed the avocado then added salt, pepper and a little garlic powder to taste. I scrambled two eggs and threw in some seasoning and spinach. I spread the avocado on the bread topped it with the scrambled eggs and drizzled some Chalula on top. Other options would be to spread some hummus on the toast, sliced avocado, then add any number of vegetables on top, or chicken. Add any spice you like, whatever your taste buds are telling you, go with it, enjoy the flavor and the creating. Anything goes with avocado toast, an easy healthy choice for an absolutely delicious meal. Nourish your body and savor your soul
