Avocado Toast

This is one of the simplest lunches and has been recreated in so many ways: avocado toast. Avocado is vegan, vegetarian, paleo and delicious. Avocados contain a high percentage of fat but mostly monounsaturated, i.e. healthy, fat. They contain a relatively high amount of protein, more potassium than a banana and have a high content of fiber.

In addition, avocados are rich in vitamin K, Vitamin B9, vitamin B6, vitamin B5 vitamin C, and vitamin E. They help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of diabetes, stroke, and coronary artery disease.

This avocado toast is simple but has one surprising ingredient that makes it even more delicious, IMHO.

Toast two slices of good quality sourdough or multigrain bread. If you are gluten sensitive, use Ezekiel with sesame. Cut one avocado and remove the pit. Spread each half on one of the slices. Cover the avocado in toasted sesame seeds or gomasio. Use the juice of half a lemon on each avocado toast. Slice two cherry tomatoes and add the slices on top of the avocado. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
