This Healthy 5-Minute Avocado Toast is the one easy, delicious dish you were looking for, either for a quick breakfast, snack or lunch meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!I’ll start off by being honest and saying that Avocado toasts are nod frequently made in our home. And the truth is that it’s not because I don’t enjoy it.
I love Avocado toasts, but my 3 boys (a.k.a. husband and 2 sons) don’t. They’re more into a fruit salad like this. And if I mash the avocado and season it like I do in this recipe, I have to eat all of it right away, or it goes bad.
Unless you know a trick to store mashed avocado that I don’t. If you do, please share it with me NOW! I need it.
Sometimes, I cut half of the avocado and use it for the avocado toast, and I will wrap the other half in clinging wrap and save it in the fridge.
But even this way, it doesn’t last pretty long. So most times I just end up eating two avocado toasts at a time. Oops!
Is this Avocado Toast really healthy?
It’s no secret that avocado is a super food, but why is that? (you ask.)
- Potassium (helps control blood pressure);
- Lutein (good for the eyes);
- Folate (crucial for cell repair and during pregnancy);
- B vitamins (help you fight off disease and infection);
- Vitamins C and E plus natural plant chemicals (may help prevent cancer);
Other benefits of avocados are that they’re low in sugar and contain fiber, which helps you feel full longer. If this doesn’t make avocados great to add in any meal, I don’t know what does!
If you need some healthy snack ideas, avocado is a great one to keep in mind.
Here’s a fun fact… Avocados are rich in fat, but it’s “good fat”, which helps lower bad cholesterol when eaten in moderation.
So I guess this answers your question. This avocado toast really is healthy. As long as you don’t add anything unhealthy on top of it, you’ll be good.
