Mama K's Spin on Avocado Toast

When I was diagnosed with extremely high cholesterol levels, (long story) I had to literally make drastic eating habit changes overnight. Suddenly cheese, butter or anything that could send my cholesterol levels up were not an option until I was able to get my numbers under control.

That meant giving up my beloved cream cheese on toast for breakfast and sometimes lunch including an evening snack. Don’t judge - I like cream cheese.

Fast forward to my first taste of avocado toast. My world was changed almost instantaneously. Delicious, creamy and a “good” fat - I literally felt like I hit the jackpot.

Since then, I have changed up how I take my avocado toast and thought I would share a few variations with you. I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

- 2  Avocados, pits removed

- 1/2 a Lemon

- Kosher salt

- Freshly ground black pepper

- Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

- 4 Slices bread (not white), toasted

The above ingredients are for the basic avocado toast.

Directions:

Remove avocado halves from their skin and place in a medium bowl adding squeezed lemon juice in. Season with salt and pepper and mash with a fork to desired consistency. Adjust seasoning by adding more lemon juice, salt and/or pepper.

Spread the mashed avocado mixture onto well toasted bread and top with the following possible toppings:

- Small handful of arugula with some micro greens and slices of tomato drizzled with olive oil, salt & pepper

- Crumbled feta cheese, diced tomatoes, diced cucumbers, kalamata olives and a squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil

- Small handful of cilantro, sliced radishes, fresh chopped bacon crumbles, and a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice

- Chopped mangos, tomatoes with a drizzle of olive oil and a small squeeze of fresh lemon juice

There are so many variations you can choose from. Let me know your favorite way to eat avocado toast in the comments below!

Hugs,

Mama K
