Do you wake up early to get ready for the day and still find yourself rushed to have a decent breakfast? Well you are not alone! Avocado toast has become the unsung hero of our mornings not only because it's easy and quick to make, but because it is packed with many nutrients to jump start your body and keep you fuller longer! You might have heard that avocados are full of healthy fats, but did you know they are also a good source of fiber and contain more potassium than bananas?
Some mornings time just seems to slip through our fingers but we know skipping breakfast is not an option. We've all been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but do you know why? Studies have shown that skipping breakfast may increase a woman's risk for diabetes and is also associated with hypertension, insulin resistance and elevated blood sugar. Having a healthy breakfast has been shown to give your more energy and improve concentration and performance throughout the day.
No one has much time in the morning and that is why we love avocado toast for a quick healthy and delicious meal. It is quite versatile so adding almost any vegetable or leafy green can add power to the punch. We love topping it with an egg to add protein, especially if working out is part of our morning routine. Add in some roasted tomatoes, and boom! You've got yourself the perfect breakfast (or even lunch)! So go ahead and enjoy this delicious and nutritious, quick breakfast.
