On most days, I bring in food from home lunch. Nothing assembled but things I can easily put together at work. I’m usually rushing around in the morning checking my email, catching up on my blog reading and gulping down some jet fuel while trying to make it to work on time. Instead I toss an avocado, a piece of fruit and some bread into my lunch bag and I’m good to go.
The piece of fruit is breakfast that I usually have with tea. But with the avocado and bread, I have avocado toast.
With the bread popped until the toaster for a quick crisp and the avocado split in half and the insides cubed, I smear it onto the freshly toasted bread, season it and I have lunch.
So this might seem like n a pseudo-guacamole on toast to some of you but some restaurants actually have this on their menu and actually charge for it! For me it’s a quick and easy lunch. Despite the amount of fat in an avocado (it’s a healthy fat btw), it has several health benefits. Apparently even Alton Brown attributes some of his weight loss to including avocados in his diet. But I’m not quite ready for his avocado and sardine sandwich yet.
