I know sometimes it can be hard to think of healthy meals, but sometimes the SIMPLEST meals are the HEALTHIEST!
We don’t always have to have tons of ingredients to make a yummy meal. Sometimes we just need a little INSPIRATION to think outside our box.
So, I am sharing a SUPER SIMPLE recipe with you. Maybe you already eat this or maybe you NEVER thought to put avocado on a piece of toast! Either way.. this is one of my favorite quick breakfast options that is HEALTHY and TASTY!
I LOVE avocados and sneak them into as many meals as I can.
∙ ½ avocado, mashed
∙ juice of ½ a lemon
∙ 1-2 slices sprouted grain bread (like Ezekiel Bread)
∙ dash of sea salt
∙ black pepper
∙ crushed red pepper (optional)
Mash avocado in a bowl and stir in the lemon juice.
Spread the mixture on a slice or two of toasted bread.
Sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper.
For a sweeter option: Skip the salt and pepper and spread a dab of
local honey on top of the avocado.
Got another few minutes? Top the toast with a hard-boiled or poached
egg for extra protein.
Time-saving tip: Boil your eggs ahead so you can grab and go!
Did you know that avocados are very nutritious and contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals?
