Smashed avocado on toast is featured on the menu of many trendy cafes around the world. Meghan Markle’s avocado on toast recipe went viral when she posted it on Instagram. The simple morning brekkie is enjoyed because it’s tasty, easy to make and can be adapted in endless ways.
Here are some ways to jazz up your toast. Just add:
- garlic or onion
- feta cheese
- eggs prepared your favorite way
- chia seeds
- nuts of any kind
- bacon or sausages
- sun-dried tomatoes drizzled with balsamic vinegar
These are just some of the mouth-watering extras you can add to your toast. Breakfast will never get boring because it’s so easy to change up the dish with ingredients you probably already have on hand in your kitchen.
Your taste buds will be counting down the minutes until lunchtime when avocado is on the menu. For a lunch on the run prepare an avocado smoothie with some leafy greens, berries and banana. Yogurt and milk blend beautifully with the smooth creamy texture of avocado. Sprinkle some seeds on top and you are good to go.
Avocado also goes lovely in salads. For a vegetarian salad, you can mix avocado with green lettuce, peppers, carrots and other colorful vegetables to make a super healthy rainbow salad. The avocado texture is soft and rich so makes a great substitute to meat.
A Greek-style fusion salad is also appetizing with lots of feta cheese, onions, olives and tomato.
For dinner, you might like to indulge in some seafood with your avocado. It goes very well with shrimp and salmon. Visually the color combo of pink and green is deliciously beautiful. The taste is also delicate and delectable.
The rich, creamy texture of avocado makes it a great addition to dessert dishes. Turn this versatile fruit into lime cheesecake is divine. How about chocolate and avocado mousse? Avocado is so versatile and can be added to cupcakes, ice cream and cookies.
If you really want to enjoy the healthy avocado for every meal you can. A diet where you can get your fix of all the goodness of avocados and eating the delicious avocado flesh all day long is a nice idea if you are obsessed with the fruit which is technically a single-seeded berry. Some insist it is a vegetable. Certainly, the nutritional value can be compared more to vegetables.
Who really cares if it is called a fruit, berry, or vegetable when it tastes so flavorsome and can help ward off high cholesterol, heart disease arthritis and a host of skin conditions?
Avocado is just fine eaten alone, as it is, as a snack. For babies and children, it’s a blessing if they get a taste for avocado because it’s packed with so much goodness they need for growth and development. Vitamins C, E, K and B-6 and riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium and magnesium are all found in avocados. Beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids make it a true power food for children and adults.
The only downside to avocado is at certain times of the year when it is out of season it can be very expensive. Still, you can hardly complain about the price when the benefits of eating avocado are so great.
