Avocado toast is a popular breakfast and lunch option that’s served at restaurants, small cafes, and at home. The dish has become a staple in healthy diets because it provides an excellent source of heart-healthy fats, fiber, and key nutrients. While this meal is typically low in calories, it can quickly rack up carbohydrate counts if it’s loaded with too many toppings.
Aim for a hearty bread or the keto cheese “bread” (see recipe below), preferably one that has some level of whole grains to add extra fiber to your meal. Make sure the bread is toasted well, but not burned or stale. The key ingredient in any avo toast is the avocado, so it’s important to select a ripe avocado. Gently squeeze the avocado to test its ripeness: it should feel like a nerf football (firm, with slight give).
Top your toast with non-starchy veggies such as radish and cucumber slices, sprouts, or salad greens. If you’re looking to add more protein, a fried egg or smoked salmon is an easy choice. You can also drizzle on a flavorful sauce such as sriracha, balsamic glaze, or salsa.
If you’re a fan of the classic everything bagel, try adding some of this seasoning to your avo toast for an extra punch of flavor and some crunchy texture. Try mixing in some minced garlic as well to create a super satisfying breakfast or lunch.
