Yes, you should #LoveAvocadoToast! Subbing avocado for butter on toast creates a delicious and nutritious backdrop for your simple and savory “masterpiece” – play on words intended. Just 1/3 of an avocado is a good source of fiber, folic acid, B5 and Vitamin K, boosts absorption of Vitamin A, and contains trace amounts of 15 more nutrients. Avocado is also a sodium-free source of monounsaturated fats, so on the “A” list for heart-smart choices. Smashed or sliced on artisan Venetian bread from our bakery, or layered on hearty sour dough or multigrain breads, you can take avocado toast way beyond breakfast.
