THAT’S RIGHT. No jam, but a thick smear of fresh avocado instead. Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle salt and breakfast (or snack) is done faster than you can say, “My kids will NEVER eat that”.
I know because I didn’t think mine would either.
But because we’re always
gluttons for punishment trying new things around here, the kids were riding a wave of confidence. They remembered how much they liked a certain cabbage, sausage and apple dinner the other night, the one that NO ONE would even try initially.
Now they won’t stop talking about this toast. This totally sugar-free, fill-you-up, easy-to-make and even better-for-you breakfast.
And that’s fine with me.
Health benefits of avocados:
- Packed with more than 22 vitamins
- More potassium than bananas
- High in monounsaturated fatty acids (which reduces inflammation and helps ward off cancer)
- Loaded with fiber
- Helpful for lowering cholesterol
- Antioxidants that protect eyes
TIP: After you cut the avocado in half, remove the side with the pit. Hold the remaining half in your palm and use a fork or spoon to mash up the insides right there, using the skin as a bowl. You could add the lemon juice and salt right there, or let the kids do it All By Myself, which mine prefer every time.
