Avocado Toasts

Most mornings I eat an avocado on toast, topped with other good things. That's my favourite breakfast. The avocado takes the place of the boiled eggs that I used to love.

Avocados are very good for you. I love it when people tell me how avocados have too much fat in them, and then they go out and eat fries or a burger. Trust me, you're better off eating an entire avocado.

Avocados may have fat in them, but it's the good kind, and unlike fries, avocados also provide you with other nutrients that your body needs to function. Eat avocados!

What you want to make sure you do, is choose a bread that doesn't have any additives or chemicals added to it. If you can't make your own (I certainly don't), there are some very good breads popping up all over the place. If you can get whole or sprouted grain organic bread that would be best. Sourdough is also nice. Just stay away from those white and whole wheat commercial breads, the ingredients are terrible.

Here are some links if you want to learn more about why avocados are good for you.

Can we look at some pictures of toast now?

Avocado with sun-dried tomato pesto, salt & pepper.

Avocado with tomatoes, hemp and flax seed.

Avocado with muffaletta (a pickled vegetable mix with olives) and microgreens.

Same toast as above, different angle. 

Avocado with roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, hemp and chia.

Avocado with tomatoes, olives, and basil. The one on the left has nutritional yeast.

Avocado with tomatoes, olives, hemp & chia.

Toasted red peppers again. I LOVE roasted red peppers with avocado.

Sometimes you can just smear some guacamole on your toast.

Hummus, red pepper spread, tomatoes, avocado, olives and sprouts.

Sometimes I have toast with nut butters. Top them with fruit! Pomegranates and strawberries are nice. I also like raspberries. They are all a nice little sour contrast to the sweet nut butter.

Nut butters are also good with nuts, bananas, cacao nibs, honey and bee pollen.

You could also add dried fruits. Here we have cranberries and goji berries.

Just honey with nuts and bee pollen. Use raw honey if possible.
It'll melt nicely on warm toast like this. If you're vegan, this one isn't for you.

Elvis would have loved this. PB and B.

You can also use seed butters. This is pumpkin seed butter and banana.
