Avocado Toast

Allergen Information: Free of the top 8 allergens

This recipe is kind of like the Easy Peasy Tortillas Chips.  It’s too easy to write down, but too good not to share!

Avocado toast is perfect for busy people and will keep you satisfied for a while!  I love to eat a piece or two after a smoothie if I’m still feeling hungry or if I don’t have smoothie ingredients on hand.

Before we get to the recipe, let’s talk about avocados.  Growing up, I NEVER ate them (or guacamole–I was missing out big time!) because of the stigma they have for being high in fat.  I was perfectly fine with eating a Super Sized French Fry from McDonald’s but too scared to eat an avocado?  My logic was certainly misplaced.

These awesome little fruits (yes, it’s a FRUIT) are known for their anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, aid in absorption of important nutrients, and support in cardiovascular and heart health. Plus they will give you a nice dose of plant-based protein!

Another thing I love about them is they give some recipes a creamy-like texture, like in our Creamed Spinach and Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie.

A note about the bread: I use Food for Life’s Rice Bread because it’s what my son Beckham can eat, and I actually LOVE IT!  It is gluten-free, so I highly recommend this to anyone sensitive to gluten.  If you aren’t sensitive to gluten, I would recommend Ezekiel Bread (any variety, really!).  Sprouted grains have many benefits to the body. This bread is found in most organic freezer sections and can be kept in the freezer or refrigerator.  I don’t let mine sit out on the counter because it keeps longer in the fridge!

A note about the Vegenaise: If you are avoiding the top 8 allergens, be sure to get the soy-free version of Vegenaise.  If not, you can get the regular kind! Feel free to use organic mayo if you like.

For our meat lovers, wouldn’t some fresh, local bacon be divine on this?!
