Avocado toast

Don’t be frightened by the fat content in avocados! They are not bad for you: quite the contrary! The fat contained in avocados is considered healthy fat, helping to reduce triglycerides and increase good cholesterol.

Avocados are also often considered a superfood because they are a great source of nutrients, including vitamin K, folate, vitamin B5, vitamin B6 and vitamin C. It also contains twice as much potassium as a banana, vitamin, niacin and riboflavin.

Another perk of having avocado for breakfast: it is very filling. It’ll definitely keep you going well until lunch!

Personally, I love eating avocados, whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just as a snack! It’s probably a family thing: homemade avocado dip is a family meal staple! My four sisters would probably confirm this fact, I think we’re all pretty obsessed with how yummy avocados are. I’m fairly sure my 12 year old sister Mathilde could LIVE on them! But that’s another story.

Here’s the recipe, enjoy!

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1 small, ripe avocado

1 lemon wedge

image11. Cut avocado in half and pit. Mix avocado flesh with the juice from a large lemon wedge, salt and pepper and mash.
