Healthy Avocado Treat for the New Year
New Year’s resolutions deserve to be accentuated with new starts and trying out new things. In exploring new ideas for getting a fresh, energetic start to every day, try a breakfast of avocado toast for a burst of energy to begin work or play. Botanically considered a berry, because of its fleshy pulp and large, single seed, avocados are highly nutritious and contain a lot of potassium, dietary fiber and good fats, as well as magnesium, sodium, vitamins A, E, K and B6.
This easy recipe, made with sourdough or Ezekiel bread, as well as gluten-free options, doesn’t require lot of prepping time. It satiates hunger and provides energy until lunchtime. Gluten-free options include Food For Life Rice Almond Bread, Exotic Black Rice Bread, Nature’s Path Bread Super Chia, Ancient Grains Bakery Sunny Millet Toaster Cakes.
