Some say it’s basic, others say it’s the bomb, and we say it’s here to stay. Avocado toast, when done with whole grains, organic free range eggs, and in season avocados, is a nutrient dense and delicious meal. A single medium sized avocado contains 10 grams of fiber and a significant amount of vitamin C, vitamin B-6, potassium and magnesium.
How can I make it more nutritious?
Choose a whole grain organic bread that contains the “Whole Grain Council” seal of approval to ensure you are getting the necessary nutrients and best complex carbohydrates, fiber, and protein you can from your “toast”. A nutrient strong bread will also keep you satiated much longer through your day, eliminating the need to snack as often.
What kind of nutrients am I getting?
For an extra boost of protein we like to add a sliced hard boiled egg to the equation. A single large hard boiled egg contains roughly 77 calories, 5.3 grams of fat, 0.6 grams of carbs and 6.3 grams of lean protein. It also supplies trace amounts of vitamins A, B-2, B-12, B-5, phosphorus and selenium, and let’s not forget the complete range of amino acids.
All in all, we feel that a meal of avocado toast is anything but basic and by choosing the right ingredients Avocado Toast supplies you with the range of nutrients your body needs to power through your day.
