avocado toast

Ok this has become a firm staple in my breakfast repertoire recently. I give you: avocado toast.
This is everything you want from a  good morning breakfast: quick, easy delicious and nutritious. The mix of  ripe, nutty, buttery avocado on top of wholegrain toast is to die for. This is so good I even snack on it sometimes.
And this is why it's good for you: yes, avocados are high in fat BUT the fat is un-saturated (you know the good kind, like in nuts) so it won't clog your arteries and actually helps reduce cholestorol. Avocados are also packed with lutein which keep our skin, eyes and heart healthy. I have an aversion to white bread, but brown I can't get enough of, specifically wholgrain which is packed with good wholegrain carbs which again, unlike refined carbs, will not promote weight gain and are stocked with fiber to keep your tummy happy and full till the lunch time snack attack :)

To make avocado toast you simply have to:
  1. Halve a ripe avocado and scoop out the flesh into a bowl
  2. Add a little olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice, sea salt & pepper and mash together with a fork
  3. Toast one slice of wholegrain bread
  4. Spread the mashed avocado over the top and sprinkle with cracked black pepper
  5. Devour: Om Nom Nom Nom Nom!...:)
