First, some good news on eggs
Eggs have for a long time gotten a bad rap. Talk of being unhealthy, high in cholesterol etc Recently however, a number of studies actually proved the complete opposite. Eggs are not bad for one’s health. You could eat up to a dozen eggs in a week and you will still be fine. What is even more eggsciting (get it?) is that not only are eggs harmless but they are also associated with a ton of healthy benefits among them aiding weight loss.
Personally I am an ardent fan of eggs. And scrambled eggs for that matter. Not to brag but I have- ahem- perfected making the best scrambled eggs. Lately the online food world has been abuzz with the avocado toast. So I thought why not hop into the frenzy.
So what is avocado toast
I suppose by now you have an idea what avocado toast is, I mean it is not hard to guess – but for the hell of it I’ll clarify
Avocado toast is when you (wait for it, wait for it) put avocado on toast! Voila! As simple as that. Smooth, creamy avocado is heaped on warm crunchy toast. An alluring combination of textures yet highly nutritious.
But wait! That might just be the beginning of the story, where the actual fun begins. After the avocado meets the toast, you have limitless options and possibilities for flavors and toppings. Picture avocado toast with sliced bananas and cinnamon or with fresh blueberries or broiled tomato, like I’ve said, limitless possibilities.
My avocado toast with scrambled eggs is a perfect hearty example. You have
- whole grain toast rich in fiber and great texture to keep you full
- The best scrambled egg (Did I mention I have perfected the scrambled egg?) Yeah. It’s the best. And it is loaded with protein that makes the keep you full fiber in the toast keep you full loooooonger
Perhaps toss in a fresh fruit and whoa! We are talking breakfast for conquerors.
Truly this is breakfast joy that will power you straight through the morning. No need for mid-morning snacking and no rumbling tummy (so not cool by the way)
Swap-stitutes (Swaps and substitutes)
One great thing about this recipe is that it is really flexible and so easy. Don’t like something, take it out. Want to add something, go ahead. You do you, the avocado toast is still gonna be great.
- Have some leftover vegetable, kale or spinach. Scramble some with the eggs
- Have some low fat cream cheese, spread it on the toast. You will love it
This meal is as simple as it gets. There’s no need for me to share the recipe. But since we are already here, why not?
