If Avocado Toast isn't in your weekly routine, this recipe will convince you otherwise. Nothing beats this classic toast. Start with a silky avocado, chock-full of heart- and brain-healthy fats, and dress it with EVOO (another heart/brain favorite like flaxseed oil) and a pinch of pink salt and chili peppers flakes to taste.
My personal neuro-nutritional touch is to replace commercial bread with Ezekiel bread. Ezekiel bread is prepared using traditional methods of soaking, sprouting and baking that have been in existence for centuries. It contains several different types of sprouted grains and legumes: typically, wheat, millet, barley, spelt, soybeans and lentils. Since it is completely preservative-free, Ezekiel Bread is best kept frozen. Since it is also completely free of any added sugars, this bread provides a good amount of brain-healthy glucose without a heavy glycemic load.
Prep time: 5 minutes; Total time: 5 minutes; Difficulty: low
Recipe type: Breakfast or Snack
- 2 slices Ezekiel bread
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 teaspoon EVOO
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- pinch of Himalayan sea salt
- Optional: chili flakes
Toast the bread.
Cut the avocado in half, remove pit, and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add the lemon juice and sea salt, to taste. Mash the ingredients together with a fork, keeping the texture slightly chunky.
Spread the mash onto each piece of toast and garnish with some Chili flakes and a drizzle of EVOO. (If you prefer your avocado sliced instead of mashed, sprinkle your toppings over afterwards)
