EAT: avocado toast

Here's my avocado motto: you can never have enough avocado.  Such smooth, rich creaminess packed full of fiber, potassium, vitamins C, K, folate and B6.  Half an avocado contains 15 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat.  Fat that's good for you?!  Why wouldn't you be stuffing yourself silly with this delicious stuff?

I always try to keep a couple on hand, and one of my favorite breakfast/lunch/snacks to make is avocado toast.  This is especially the case when I'm strapped for time since it's so quick and easy to make!

Here's the fun part - you can use whatever you have on hand to add as toppings.  No worries if you don't have anything aside from the avocado and toast - it's still so simply delicious on its own.

  • Avocado
  • Bread
  • Coarse salt, pepper
  • Optional ingredients
    • Truffle Oil
    • Toppings - I used chives & sesame seeds, soft boiled eggs, micro greens and heirloom tomatoes


In a small bowl, use a spoon to scoop out and mash the avocado to a chunky paste (I prefer mine a little chunkier than your average guacamole).  Salt and pepper to taste (I also like adding a few drops of truffle oil).  Spread onto your toast, then add your toppings of choice.  Enjoy!!



  1. Crushed garlic and lemon juice is also delicious! I'm going to give some of your combos a try too.
