I don’t usually jump on bandwagons, but I could not avoid the avocado toast craze!  Avocado toast really is a great lunch.  It is quick and easy to make and it’s also very versatile.  The amount of toppings you can put on your avocado toast in never-ending!  Be as creative as you’d like. I chose to make Avocado Toast with Citrus Corn Salsa because…..well no particular reason really!  I just love corn salsa.  I eat it with guacamole over rice, so I figured it would taste well over sliced avocado on toast.  Plus citrus and avocado is a magical combination.

Give it a try!

  2. Place a skillet on medium heat. Add the bread slices and toast them for about 2 -3 minutes per side, or until each side is golden brown. You could add a little olive oil to the pan if you'd like, or even try using a toaster if your french bread slices will fit.

Spinach, Carrot, Apple Smoothie

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 large carrot, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 gala apple, quartered
  • 2 cups water, filtered if possible, or pineapple juice
  • 1 lemon slice
Instructions
  1. Blend everything together until smooth. Add water to adjust the sweetness and consistency, if desired.
Notes
I use the entire apple, peel, core, seeds, everything. These things all contain beneficial nutrients so why waste them?!
Lemon peel and pith have many health benefits so I like to blend whole slices of lemons in my smoothies. If your blender is not strong enough to blend lemon with the peel attached to it then I would use the juice of 1 or 2 lemons (taste to see how many you want to use).

    Avocado toast – such a simple concept, but seriously is there anything better?!? This post is having me crave it SO much this morning! (Getting good avocados out here in TN is difficult to do)

      Exactly! So simple, but so perfect! I hope you can find good avocados somewhere. I know the struggle! Good avocados are a hit or miss where I live too.

    Yes please to the Avocado toast. I used to buy Avocado all of the time when Aldi came to town. They’d sell them for $0.98 or on sale for $0.50. Now they’re over a $1 for one. I need to splurge so I can make your recipe.

    This all looks so good. I recently tried avocados and had it on toast it was so good. But then I found out it had 13 grams of fiber and I am on a very low fiber diet because of my Crohn’s :(!
