1. Avocado toast with eggs

The first and most important meal of the day deserves a full and energetic breakfast. So, here’s a tip: how about increasing the menu with the recipe for avocado toast and eggs? So you guarantee the carbohydrate of the toast, the vitamins and minerals of the avocado and the protein of the egg.

Ingredients:

– ½ avocado

– 2 slices of bread (or 2 large toasts)

– 2 eggs

– 1 teaspoon of unsweetened coconut oil

– Seasonings to taste

Start by heating the bread in a skillet over low heat until it forms a crispy crust and set aside. Then, spread the coconut oil in the pan, wait 1 minute and place one of the eggs over the oil. Let it cook for approximately 3 minutes until the white is white on the top and slightly golden on the bottom. Take it out of the pan, set aside and prepare the other egg in the same way.

Finally, mash the avocado pulp with the help of a fork and distribute it over the slices of bread. Season with salt, pepper and the spices of your choice and cover with the eggs. Your breakfast is complete !

2. Avocado dip

Dips are creamy pastas that go great with cookies, toast, tortillas and healthy snacks. You can also prepare it for breakfast or to eat between meals.

Ingredients:

– 1 avocado

– ½ lemon

– 2 teaspoons of olive oil

– 2 garlic cloves

– 1 chopped parsley

– Salt and black pepper to taste

First, use a wooden mortar to beat the garlics with a pinch of salt. In a separate container, mash the avocado pulp with a fork, add the garlic and squeeze the ½ lemon juice. Mix everything and finish the fruit dip with black pepper, olive oil and chopped parsley. Serve with vegetable chips !

3. Guacamole

The guacamole is a typical Mexican dish that is becoming increasingly popular in Brazil. It works in a similar way to an avocado paste. It is made with super-nutritious ingredients and served with crispy nachos or tortillas.

– 1 ripe tomato

– 1 small onion

– 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Tip: For the recipe even more rich in flavor and nutrients, you can also add 2 to 3 cloves of minced and raw garlic. After all, consuming raw garlic enhances the properties of the food .
