Cucumber Egg Avocado Toast
 

Avocados are one of the best foods on the planet.  Maybe I'm biased, but you're reading my blog so I'm allowed to make sweeping claims.  I often get asked "But what about the high fat content?".  Yes, avocados are high in fat.  But they are high in "good fat" - aka MUFAs (Mono-Unsaturated Fatty Acids).  When eaten in moderation, they are actually heart healthy. This recipe calls for a 'serving' of avocado - so go ahead, get wild! 

Cost.  Is avocado toast worth the hefty $7.00 price tag at artisanal coffee shops? No, not really.  Let's break down the ingredients and associated cost.

  • Whole Grain Toast. It's toast… It's basically free.  $0.25cents
  • Avocado. 1/3 of a creamy, heavenly avocado.  $0.75 cents
  • Toppings (choose any or all)
    • Fried Egg. Eggs are nutrient powerhouses. $0.25 cents
    • Cucumber slices. Crunchy, tangy, easy. $0.30 cents
    • Tomatoes. Sweet, sweet tomatoes. $0.15 cents.
    • Sprouts. Adds a nice crunch and visual upgrade. $0.15 cents
