I get asked so often “what do you eat everyday?” and I realise I don’t have a blog post of my ultimate go to breakfast: avocado toast. You know, I’ve always thought about making a recipe for my favourite avocado toast but then there was the avo toast craze. It was everywhere, something I was very happy with. But I used that as an excuse that you guys probably had a recipe for it by now. 
Silly, right? There can never be too much avocado toast and there can never be too many recipes on this blog! So in honour of that question – this, my friends, is what I usually eat everyday. Workout, protein shake, avo toast. My favourite avo toast in the world is simply seasoned avocado on some bread, topped with deliciously pickled onions, red pepper flakes and everything bagel seasoning. That’s it! It’s SO good it’s insane. 
Ingredients for an avocado toast: bread, pickled onions, avocado halves, everything bagel seasoning and sea salt.
There are so many great and crucial reasons that Avocado toast is my go to breakfast. Firstly, it’s a high fat meal which I not only love, but I also thrive on. I always ensure to use my favourite lower carb/loaded with amazing fibre bread which is Dave’s Killer Bread. Of course choose your favourite bread here! 
The next reason is that it is loaded with so many delicious nutrients. As we know, Avocado is loaded with monounsaturated fats aka good fats, as well as so many vitamins such as Vitamin C, K, E and A. Then of course, there’s the time it takes. This avocado toast takes ten minutes to whip up which is absolutely incredible. That means you can have an amazing and nutrient packed breakfast every single day from scratch. Of course, you’d have to make the pickled onions first. That’s a one time thing and they last you so long.

Tips on how to make the best avocado toast 

  1. The right avocado – you want to choose an avocado that is firm with a slight give when you press into it, but not too mushy. 
  2. Season your avocado separately – I’ve definitely seasoned my avocado portion on the toast itself and while it was fine, it’s so much better to pre-season and mash it in a little bowl, then to transfer it onto your bread. Plus it makes it way prettier for photos!   
  3. Have it fresh – don’t try to meal prep this one ahead of time. Avocado toast is best freshly made. Trust me, I literally tested it for you!
  4. Definitely add toppings: sure, avocado sea salt pepper and lime are great by itself. But this is your time to shine! Avo toast’s toppings are what also takes it over the top so definitely jazz it up with some toppings!

Some ideas for your avocado toast

Everything bagel seasoning 
Black sesame seeds 
Drizzle of truffle oil 
vegan feta cheese
burst tomatoes
balsamic glaze
Anyway – let’s get into the recipe friends! This is so precious to me so I hope that you enjoy!

    Try avo on toasted pumpernickel, the darker the better, great even with only a light sprinkle of salt
