Do I have any avocado toast fans out there?!

Avocado toast is my favorite go-to meal or snack when I’m in a time crunch or feeling lazy in the kitchen. This is what I define as “fast food.” Fast food meaning a quick meal that satisfies cravings and is inexpensive! If you think about it, the cost to make this meal is less than anything you’d order at McDonald’s AND the time it takes to prepare the meal is less than making it past any commercial drive-thru. 

My point is, going through a drive-thru every now and then is OKAY! It is realistic for some of us and seems like the only option after a long day of work and carting your kids around. But, next time you’re at the grocery store, think twice. Grab those avocados and loaf of whole-wheat bread! It doesn’t need to be fancy, and if you’re not a tomato fan, scratch them. There are many other delicious avocado toast combinations and I’ll list some of my favorites below.

I don’t only love the taste of this meal (or snack!), but the nutrition for diabetics is unparalleled. Avocados are loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats which boost brain and heart health. Avocados help lower bad (LDL) cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar levels (HEY!), and support weight management.

Fried Egg + Hot Sauce + Cilantro

Mixed Berries + Honey + Chia Seeds

Grilled Chicken + Pomegranate Seeds + Feta Cheese

Bacon + Jalapeño + Tomato
