Why did I not think of this yet??
You all know about my love for avocados, and the numerous ways I enjoy it. I read today’s recipe from The Kitchn (one of my favorite food/cooking blogs) and I can’t believe I haven’t tried this yet! Avocado Toast for breakfast – so simple, so healthy, so pure and tasty.
You simply toast some good bread, mash an avocado on top, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Yum.
I can imagine beefing this up for more protein with a slice of cheese (I love Cabot’s habanero cheddar or any sharp cheddar), or even an egg (fried, scrambled, hard-boiled). It won’t be vegan anymore, but it will still be tasty. Since I sometimes work out in the mornings, I imagine this would be the PERFECT post-workout breakfast, with the combination of carbs, fat and protein. Maybe with a side of skim milk or a green monster smoothie too.
I am a big breakfast eater and I usually plan my breakfast the night before. I love scrambled eggs, or oatmeal (overnight oats or hot oatmeal – I love them both), or Greek yogurt – always with a side of fruit and a glass of milk. Tomorrow I know exactly what I’ll be eating: avocado toast! I can’t wait to try it. I might even make it for a snack later…
What’s your favorite way to eat an avocado? Have you ever tried avocado toast for breakfast or as a snack?
