For the past year, I’ve been eating an avocado for breakfast every morning along with scrambled eggs.
Because I was on a low carb diet and I had to avoid wheat. I replaced my carbs with a delicious, filling avocado.
It’s a whole food that contains healthy fats. Plus, avocados add savoriness to any dish and they’re very versatile.
Add them to a dish as is or bake with them in place of butter or oil.
If you’re a vegetarian or on a low carb diet, try adding avocados for more satisfying meals.
One of my favorite recipes featuring avocados is Buttery Avocado Garlic Toast. It’s sophisticated, satisfying, and makes a perfect party appetizer.
