My favorite meal for breakfast is probably one of the healthiest & simplest to make!
Avocado toast takes only a few minutes to prepare and will keep you energized & satisfied for hours.
As you may be aware, avocados are a super food! They are high in healthy fats, low in saturated fat and are of course cholesterol free!
Avocados are a pear shaped fruit that contain 20 different vitamins & minerals including, vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, & vitamin E.
Avocados contain more potassium than bananas which can lower your risk of a heart attack & stroke.
They are filled with fiber and the fabulous ‘oleic acid’, which can help with inflammation and possibly reduce your risk of certain cancers.
So yes, I think avocados have earned the right to be called a ‘super food’!!
I’m not quite sure how radishes are supposed to follow ‘that’…but I will tell you that those tiny red veggies are jam packed with some nutrients as well.
Radishes are a root vegetable and cousin to the cabbage. They are a good source of vitamin C, folate, fiber, riboflavin & potassium.
Radishes also serve as a natural diuretic and according to Dr. Mercola, they purify the kidneys, urinary systems and relieve inflammation.
Oh how I love radishes!! Would you believe that my daughter eats them whole, like tiny apples? 😋She loves them!
Radishes tend to be a bit bitter, but when sliced extra thin with a mandolin, they compliment the avocado and toast nicely.
Here’s my crazy easy recipe!
high quality sliced grain bread. (I prefer Eureka Organic or Daves Killer Bread)
1 red radish thinly sliced
Juice from 1/4 lemon
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
Pinch of Himalayan sea salt
Pinch of crushed red pepper
Toast your bread and mash avocado, lemon, black pepper, salt & crushed red pepper with a fork, in a small bowl.
spread over toast and add sliced radishes.
Sprinkle with a bit more salt & pepper if needed.
