Food Trends: Avocado Toast
by Pamela Morgan
Now, the avocado craze is nothing new. Ever since Chipotle hit the market charging extra for their guacamole, there’s been a demand for this power food. So much so, that there’s even buzz about an avocado shortage. So, why avocado on toast? I say, why not?! I start my day with an avocado toast because it’s super yummy and is LOADED with nutrients. And, if you know me, you know that I love playing with my food. Avocado gives me a blank canvas to create beautiful plates reminiscent of Picasso’s best. I should be featured at the MoMA, don’t you think? On top of all of this avocado toast is all kinds of delicious! The avocado acts as a buttery spread, and will have you saying goodbye to boring old toast and jam!
As proof, this week I’m showing you three different ways to add some sizzle and flavor to your avocado toast. Adios, boring breakfast! Hello, flirtatious and nutritious! The three toasts I’ve featured here are good for any meal or even a snack!
