Beauty Inside & Out: Avocado Toast
I’ve been seeing Avocado Toast Instagram photos for what seems like forever now. I finally stopped drooling while looking at them and made them for myself. It’s what I had for breakfast this morning. Thankfully, avocados were on sale at my local grocery store because of the Super Bowl. They were 2 for a $1! Score! I bought 12 of them. It’s not limited to just breakfast though. You can have it at lunch or even as a good post workout meal. I just did the simple avocado toast topped with an egg this time, but the possibilities are endless!
I don’t know about you, but the yoke dripping is just so satisfying for me. It’s not a pretty sight, but it’s oh so good tasting!
It’s fulfilling, but not that, “OMG, I feel so full that I don’t want to walk around type of full.”
You can topped it off with:
- Caprese salad mixture
- Smoked salmon
- Hot sauce
- Feta & Onions
I can go on and on about what other toppings you can add to the mix, but you get the idea.
How I made mine:
1. Toasted 2 slices of bread
2. Fried my eggs in a tablespoon of “I can’t believe it’s not butter”
3. Cut my avocado in half and took the seed out then mashed it with a fork
4. Spread half of the avocado on one toast then the other with the other slice of toast
5. Sprinkled salt and pepper on my eggs then put each egg on top of the toast slices
Total calorie intake for both was about 620. Next week, I’ll just cut down to one in the mornings or for lunch with an apple or other type of fruit.
Now why is the title of this post “Beauty Inside and Out“?
The “Inside” is because Avocados are rich in fat. Good fat, that is! The monounsaturated good fat. Avocados are also a natural anti-inflammatory agent, loaded with fiber, can lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels, contain more potassium than bananas, packed with nutrients and vitamins, and most importantly to me…they’re delicious!
Now the “Out”…
You see that little bit that’s left over in the halves? Get a spoon or just use your fingers and apply to your face! Avocados are great for facial masks. Especially if you have dry skin. There are some different Avocado facial mask recipes on Pinterest or the net that will suit your needs. For me, just the good old fashion avocado will do. Leave it on your face for 10 minutes, wash it off with warm water, and pat your face dry with your face towel. BAM! Your face is now moisturized!
If you’re home alone, you can even apply it while you’re eating your Avocado Toast and not look too crazy.
What avocado toast combination have you made?
