I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve jumped aboard the avocado toast train. Yes, it’s a super trendy dish, and yes things that are super trendy tend to annoy me. But the thing is, I’ve been eating avocado toast for a long time now, way before it was a thing.
The fact is, it’s delicious. DELICIOUS. And it’s packed full of fresh flavors and nutrition. The combination of heart healthy fats, whole grains, and vitamins, make avocado toast a very nicely well-rounded and complete meal that is as satisfying as it is tasty. It’s one of my favorite Weight Watchers breakfast recipes that I eat over and over again. Plus, it’s a great way to use up my avocados before they rot, because, let’s face it….avocados are SO finicky and their window of usage ability is minimal.
One of the things I love about avocado toast is that it is absolutely divine as is, or you can use it as a blank canvas for whatever toppings you want to add. I’ve been known to top mine with a poached egg, crisp bacon, prosciutto, feta cheese, honey, black beans and corn…I could really go on and on, but you get the idea. It may not be super light, but for the amount of nutrition and feeling of satisfaction you get, this easy avocado toast is a bargain at just 3 Points per serving. Try it…it’s ok to be trendy every now and then.
