Since this blog was meant to offer up new and exciting ways of thinking about breakfast, I am including a simple avocado toast recipe. This past year or so, there has been a lot of different restaurants offering “toast” with various toppings. This is one that I like because it is easy, is savoury and offers up some “good” fats and carbohydrates to keep energy and brain function going throughout the morning! It makes me “feel good”… I bet it makes you feel good, too! You might even be able to keep up with JB!
Music Selection: I Feel Good – James Brown
2 slices toast
1 tsp lime juice
Tomato, sliced – optional
Feta cheese, crumbled – optional
Pistacios, chopped – optional
Mash avocado with lime juice, salt and pepper. Toast and butter the bread. Spread avocado on toast.
Fry an egg, we like our over easy, and place on avocado/toast. If you like feta cheese, you can sprinkle it on the avocado before adding the egg! Serve with fresh fruit, tapenade and/or wrapped asparagus!
As an alternative: Replace egg with chopped pistachio OR replace egg with slices of fresh tomato and sprinkle with feta cheese OR better yet – try it with some homemade tapenade!
