This is one of those incredibly easy recipes that you can whip up in mere minutes but it tastes like you put a lot of effort into it. I often make this for breakfast, even on work days! Not only is it tasty but it looks beautiful and is nutritious. A wonderful way to start the day!
What's worse than having a fever and sore throat? Having a fever and sore throat right in the middle of summer. Unfortunately this is my current situation. Usually I would baby myself with lots of hot tea and warm chicken noodle soup, but when it is 90 degrees outside those are kind of the last things I want.
When I'm sick I refuse to let it spoil eating food that I enjoy. I still have great food but make sure that it is something that will benefit me and help me feel better. So I decided to make myself a delicious smoothie that would be hydrating and full of all the vitamins I need to not just feel better but get better!
Sometimes you envision a perfect dish - picture worthy, pinterest worthy...just beautiful. And you can achieve that...sometimes. Other times it's a massive flop. But OTHER times (and I think these are my favorite times) you don't achieve the original vision, however you do create something amazing! That is exactly what happened here.
I pictured a perfectly cooked baked egg on top of my avocado. And if I had emptied out the avocado shell a little more I probably would have gotten that. But I didn't want to waste any of the avocado goodness, so I filled the shell. And when I put my egg on top it didn't necessarily stay where I wanted it to.
It's been such a busy past few weeks! I have hardly had time to post or even eat substantial amounts until dinner time every day. In times like this - where I know lunch will be a later meal - I make sure to have a breakfast that will keep me full and hold me over for the entire afternoon.
This breakfast does just that! Carbs, fat and protein all in one - without sacrificing flavor or taking too long to make!
I have been in Australia since Sunday Morning and it has been wonderful. I love traveling to far places, especially when it means I can escape from the cold weather! One of the biggest challenges however is eating up all of your food before leaving. Two weeks is a long time to be away from home and I'd rather not return to sad, rotten food. Earlier in the week I did a full inventory of what we had in our fridge and planned ways to use it all up. The only oddball item was a pint of blueberries.
Last Monday morning when I was thinking about breakfast I wasn't entirely sure what to make. We had no eggs and no smoothie ingredients, but we did have bread. So I did a quick scan over my inventory list again and remembered that in addition to the blueberries I had a small jar of almond butter. The idea for these toasts just made perfect sense - I don't know why I hadn't thought this up before!
I'm Ali! Living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
