Given that my birthday is merely a few days away and that Christmas is right around the corner,I am probably setting myself up for a challenge but I am going to be making an effort to focus on healthier eating. No danger exists of me giving up trips to the cupcake shop or enjoying some kick arse BBQ now and then. It just doesn’t hurt to be good to your body the rest of the time.
Nearly four years ago now, I lost about 100 pounds and kept most of it off since. Lately though, a few of those pounds have been threatening to return. I’m a big girl and have no hangups about it but I’d still like to strive to maintain what I worked so diligently to accomplish.
In between planning the Christmas cookie list and researching baked ham recipes, finding the time to plan out a week of healthy meals can be difficult. Frequently, I’ve found myself falling back on some quick fix healthy recipes that I’ve kept in my back pocket throughout my health improvement journey (doesn’t that sound less judgmental that weight loss journey?).
This avocado toast recipe really couldn’t be much easier. Yet, it is packed full of those healthy Omega 3 fats from the avocado and the protein of the egg. Pile it all on some good whole grain bread and you’re treating your body to fiber too. Speaking of the egg, if you think a creamy yolk tastes good, just wait until you experience the lusciousness as that silky golden goodness soaks into the layer of avocado. Scrumptious and a great quick fix breakfast recipe!
