A Quick and Easy Lunch Idea

avocado toast

Sometimes I’m at a loss when it comes to lunch. I often end up eating breakfast food again – cereal, yogurt with granola and fruit, or a smoothie with some spinach thrown in. But these usually leave me hungry again before too long, and sometimes I want something just as quick but savory.

Recently, I’ve been hooked on whole wheat toast with avocado, salt, and chili flakes. Top this with a scrambled or fried egg, and you’ve got a healthy meal that satisfies for hours.

During summertime, I add thick tomato or cucumber slices to make this even more of a garden delight!

    Such a great idea, and so amazingly simple. Sounds like I’ve found tomorrow’s lunch (although, I ate the last of the avocado with stir fry tonight….)

    I am hooked to using 1/2 Avocado, cherry tomatoes cut in half, a little sea salt and some cumin! I’ll have to try my combo on toast & an egg. Thanks,

    I’m obsessed with avocados. In fact, eating 2 fried eggs and half a small avocado for breakfast right now! Avocados are great because they are so filling and I always feel healthy eating them.
