Avocado Toast

My friend, Stephanie, introduced me to this yummy snack. It’s perfect for fighting off those mid-afternoon/post-lunch hunger grumblings. Plus, there are several health benefits associated with avocado.

About 75% of an avocado's calories come from fat – stay with me, okay? Those are the “good fats." Avocados also have 60% more potassium than bananas. They are rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin K. They have a high fiber content among fruits. And - as if it couldn’t get any better - it’s known to promote health skin and hair! (Thanks for the help, Wikipedia!)

Oh, and have I mentioned that this is one EASY recipe? Really, it couldn’t get any easier.

Two slices of whole grain bread, toasted
One ripe avocado (It’s ripe if it’s dark – no green showing on the skin, and soft to the touch)
Natural honey
Sea salt

Spread one half of avocado onto each slice of toast (it’ll be chunky)
Sprinkle some honey across each slice
Pinch of salt on each slice


Evening eating update: Sorry, friends. With a late evening date with hubby, a birthday dinner party, and a wedding this past weekend, I failed miserably. BUT, I ate some reeeeally good food. You understand, right? Starting again tonight.
