So I thought I’d dedicate a whole post to avocado on toast. YUM!
Why? It’s a nifty, quick, super nutritious & tasty low sugar breakfast that appeals to many and is good breakfast if you’re weaning yourself off of sugary stuff.
A lot of people come to me saying they don’t have time for eggs in the morning or they are short on time.
Well, avocado on toast works around this problem because it is super quick. By the time your toast has toasted, you can peel and mash half an avocado. 5mins tops.
Benefits of avocado on toast
- Healthy fats & something green in your breakfast
- Source of fibre, potassium and antioxidants
- Feels decadent & indulgent
- Can flavour or fancy to taste (salt, chilli flakes, herbs, seeds etc.)
- Filling because avocado is a source of protein & fat
- Children & fussy adults generally like it too (I’ve found anyway)
- Oh, nearly forgot this one…completely sugar and sugar substitute free!
On top of this, there are some recent studies that show avocado really is flipping good for you. Read about the 12 proven benefits of avocados on Authority Nutrition if you’re still not convinced (or feeling still a bit scared of the fat).
So how can you have it?
Chilli flakes & salt
Cottage cheese & pumpkin seeds
You could also melt some cheese on top but I haven’t done this myself yet (I suspect it’s really good if you’ve had too many drinks the night before!)
I also found 7 other (more fancy) ways to do you avocado on toast on 700experience.com. Puts my pictures to shame and makes you hungry!
Don’t want to make? Eat out!
Of course you can make avocado on toast at home pretty easily, but you can also now get it out and about. Eggs will always be a brunch winner, but avocado on toast, now more widely available could be another winning savoury option.
Natalie knows the London avocado toast scene a lot better than I do so I picked her brains for list of places that could accommodate this sugar-free request.
Even if you don’t live in London, you could keep this list to hand in case you ever visited. I’ve certainly got some on my radar.
Note: Even if somewhere doesn’t do avocado on toast, you can always ask for it – I suspect quite a few places will oblige.
