Saw a great idea on Foodnetwork this morning and decided to try it as a great alternative for breakfast, lunch or afternoon snack. It is healthy, has the good type of fat and a nice amount of protein. I toasted a couple of pieces of whole wheat bread, smashed 1/2 of a nice ripe avocado on the slices, sprinkled with a little salt and some lemon and then topped with slices of a hard boiled egg topped with a little more salt and some pepper. It was delish!
I need some easy things to make for breakfast so I don’t default to cereal, high in carbs and sugar. I like to scramble eggs, but some mornings I do not have the time to sauté the vegetables to make the eggs interesting and more nutritional. Plus, I like cheese with my scrambled eggs and if I want to cut some bad fat and calories, I need to add cheese less often. So having avocados and hard boiled eggs on hand make this a great alternative that is so easy to make in the mornings.
Substitute the toast with pita bread and this would be easy to pack for lunch. Take the ingredients to work and make it when you are ready to eat it. I like it and plan on using it often.
