If you are on the avocado toast band wagon and love it as much as we do, welcome to the club. This practically overnight food sensation has taken over the health and fitness world and looks like it’s here to stay. There’s something about the combination of crispy bread and smooth avocado that clearly is a match made in foodie heaven. We rounded up 8 tasty ideas that will blow your mind. If you’re getting a bit bored with your avocado toast, try one of these easy recipes. Who would have thought something so simple could be so life-changing?
Add a little heat – if you love a little spicy touch to your food, adding red pepper flakes to your toast is a good place to start. If you want to up the ante, try using some hot sauce or sliced jalapeno peppers.
Throw on extra micronutrients – We all could use some more vegetables in our life and what better place to start? Add sliced tomatoes on top for an unexpected twist.
Add some protein – From a nutrition standpoint, avocado toast is mostly comprised of fat and carbohydrate, and some protein. Similar to bagels with smoked salmon, you can also try the same tasty topping for your avocado toast for additional protein. Now that’s what we call a complete meal.
Bacon, need we say more? – If you’re not a vegetarian, the odds are you can’t resist the smell or taste of bacon. Crisp up a slice or two of regular or turkey bacon, or you can even use pre-cooked bacon bits to garnish.
Try something unexpected – Who would ever think hummus would complement a dish where avocado was the star of the show? Prepare to be amazed. The creaminess of the hummus pairs perfectly with fresh avocado slices.
An inexpensive addition that you most likely have in your refrigerator already – Another way to make this a higher protein breakfast is to put an egg on top. Try a fried or hardboiled egg, whichever you prefer. Either one is a yummy choice.
A sweet and savory match made in heaven – Not sure if you’re in the mood for something sweet or savory? Adding fresh sliced mango to your avocado toast is an irresistible combination that will satisfy your cravings.
A southwest flair – The more toppings the merrier! Upgrade this favorite and embrace a southwest vibe by topping with corn and feta. This is basically a really delicious salad, sans lettuce.
