a simple snack

avocado on toast.
This is one of our favorite snacks.
aaaaannnnd....it's easy. healthy. and super quick!

It took 4 minutes and 16 seconds to be exact.
yes.
I timed it.
I wanted actual proof that it takes no time at all to have a healthy snack.

What you'll need:
-a good slice of whole grain bread, toasted
-ripe avocado
-salt and pepper
-a good magazine to read while you enjoy.

enjoy!

A favorite of mine too. But I like a sprinkling of Tabasco on top of the avocado.

oh my gosh, I just found your blog today, and loved it. But, when I saw this, I added it to my fave's. I LOVE this snack. I do have to admit, I throw a little bit of butter on the toast first though. I have always thought I am the only one that eats this.

Yum, yum, EXTRA yum. I'm making this for myself tomorrow. And I'm going to take a few minutes to flip through my mags as well. How happy!! :)

Does it weird you out that I am so agreeable with everything you post/say?
Maybe we really are meant to be friends. Just saying.

I'm such a fan of avocado ANYTHING! This sounds great. Still looking forward to trying that Kale you mentioned. Sounds delish.

Avocado with salt & pepper is the best! I drizzle a little lemon / lime juice on mine to which brightens the flavor a bit. YUMMY! Now I want some avocado! :)

I love, love, LOVE smashed avocado on toast - specially with a dash of cumin and a bit of extra-virgin olive oil!

Yum - this picture is making my tummy growl :)
