Oh avocado toast, how did I live without you? Last summer, my friend, Rachna, introduced me to what would become my go-to quick/tasty/lovely/NUTRITIOUS snack, avocado toast. It pretty much could not be easier to make and it’s satisfying and good for you. Boom. I eat it because it is straight up yummy. So without further ado, I am happy to pass along this miracle secret snack to you. Here’s the “recipe” – that word is a bit highfallutin’, as you’ll see. Seriously, how did I not eat this every day from college on?
Rachna’s Avocado Toast
- Two pieces of interesting bread – I like Vermont Bread’s cinnamon raisin bread (it has no added fructose)
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- sea salt to taste
- red pepper flakes to taste
Toast the bread. Cut the avocado in 1/2 and split between the two pieces of toast. With a fork or a wide knife, mash the avocado onto the toast. Add sea salt and red pepper flakes to taste.
This snack or breakfast has about 300 calories (that’s assuming the avocado is medium sized), a ton of fiber, 20 vitamins and minerals and a nice supply of healthy fat.
That’s it! Change up the recipe as you like — some folks add lemon or lime, some add honey. I like it straight up. (Make that LOVE. ) What are you snacking on that’s easy and delish? Let me know! Happy trails, xxoo Steph
