If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed my recent obsession with avocado toast and it’s not just my obsession. It seems like all of Instagram is taking the avocado toast to a whole nother level. But this one is better than any other toast you have tried, the perfect combination of healthy fats and carbohydrates makes this recipe an incredible snack too. This spicy & sweet avocado toast recipe is a must-try!
Sweet & Spicy Avocado Toast
Usually, when I eat avocado toast I use lemon & sea salt and maybe adding some sriracha to the top but this one is by far my favorite. I really felt the need to share this one just in case you needed something a little different. Both Sweet & Spicy, this recipe was inspired by a cafe here in Houston.
Now eating avocado can be tricky. I typically recommend following what feels right to you. Don’t guilt yourself if you end up eating the whole avocado, I always do.
I LOVE me some avocadoes!
Why you should eat the whole avocado!
Avocados not only taste amazing but they are high in mono- and polyunsaturated fats, which helps reduce bad cholesterol and decrease the risk for heart disease. Their high levels of potassium can aid in keeping blood pressure under control. They also have shown to reduce the risk of certain cancers, including cancers of the mouth, skin, and prostate.
Avocados contain many essential vitamins and minerals and are a good source of vitamin B5, vitamin K, and fiber, which aids digestion and helps maintain regularity. Additionally, avocados are high in magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and potassium, containing even more potassium per gram than bananas.
Amazingly avocados contain serotonin, a type of feel-good neurotransmitter in the brain, making it a great way to increase happy feelings in the brain.Print
