This is my favorite thing right now. I know I'm not the first person to do this, nor will I be the last. But it's new to ME, and I have been eating this breakfast non-stop. Here it is:
Okay, lemme explain what I've done here. It's almost too simple for an actual recipe. I use Ezekiel Bread. Which I should write a whole separate post on someday. For now, I'll just say ... it's awesome. But you could easily substitute another kind of bread here: gluten free, regular, whatever floats your boat. I pop that bread into the toaster for 3 minutes. Then, I assemble all this stuff:
I use light olive oil, nutritional yeast, half an avocado, half a tomato, and salt and peppa. After my bread is toasted, I drizzle it with about 2 T. of olive oil. I sprinkle with nutritional yeast. (Check out my article about nutritional yeast here!) Then I add slices of avocado. I sprinkle it with salt and pepper. And lastly, I put slices of tomato on top.
Side note on my avocado slicing technique: I slice the avocado in half lengthwise. Using a paring knife, I make vertical slices to the fruit while it's still in the shell. (Husk? Peel?). Then I use a spoon to scoop out the pre-sliced pieces. Pretty nifty, huh?
Now, I just want to take a moment to say: Yum!
Nutritionally, this meal has everything I want in a breakfast: high quality protein, healthy fats, and fresh fruits. (Yes, tomatoes and avocados are both fruits.) And it has none of the stuff I'm trying to avoid: processed grains and sugar. I'm not a vegetarian, but having been vegetarian for 14 years in the past definitely sways my preferences. Plant based meals are still a staple in my house! I feel better and have long-lasting energy when I eat them.
Try this out sometime soon! And let me know what you think!
