Easy Avocado Recipe
Half an avocado contains 3.4 grams of fiber. Eating meals high in fiber helps you feel full longer. Avocados are good for your heart and can help lower cholesterol. With all of these great reasons to eat avocados, I’ve been searching for an easy avocado recipe like avocado toast.
The only hard part of eating an avocado is getting the avocado out of the skin. Once you know what you’re doing, it’s really quite easy. Slice the avocado in half and then scoop out the seed in the center. Using the avocado slicer, remove the flesh of the avocado. Use it as slices or mash it in a bowl. For the lemon zest, I used a citrus zester. It is so much easier to get the zest of a lemon with a citrus zester than trying to use a knife.
Is avocado and egg toast good for you?
Yes, this easy avocado recipe is the perfect healthy lunch. Avocados are high in healthy fats and fiber. And eggs are a great source of lean protein. If you add fresh vegetables, you have a delicious healthy lunch or dinner recipe.
Is avocado toast good for weight loss?
That really depends on what you’re eating it instead of. Avocado is high in fat so it is not a low fat or low-calorie food. But, if you are having it instead of a cheeseburger or grilled cheese, it can be a better choice if you’re trying to lose weight.
Avocado toast with hard-boiled egg
This easy avocado recipe is one of the most flexible healthy lunch recipes I make. You can make it so many different ways depending on your preferences. The eggs can be fried, poached, hard-boiled, or mashed. The avocados can be sliced or mashed. You can enjoy it on toast, crackers, Melba toast, bagels or whatever other types of bread you have on hand.
Avocado and egg sandwich
Now, the kids have always balked at slices of avocado, but they are fine with a thin layer of guacamole under the egg. Just experiment a bit with the way you prepare it. And, to keep this light on the meat, you can skip the bacon and instead add diced chives, fresh spinach leaves, or pomegranate arils (seeds) over the top. You can turn it into a sandwich with a top slice of bread.
If you want to take this for lunch but don’t want the avocado to get brown, sprinkle a little fresh lemon juice over the top, spread it evenly over it with a knife.Then seal it tightly with plastic wrap to keep the air out. Try it. It really does work. This easy avocado recipe is one of my favorite easy avocado sandwich recipes when I work away from home.
