Olivia Wilde called it her “crack” and Kathryn Budig said she’d even marry one :) Are you a fan of avocados as well?
Yogis in NYC are! At today’s Wanderlust Festival at Pier 63 in Chelsea, Avocados from Mexico gave away some avocado toast and sweet totes designed by the talented Claudia Pearson. Missed out? Not to fret, here’s the recipe. Perfect for parties, bbqs, and an easy healthy meal you can whip up in a few minutes in between downward facing dogs and runs to the juice bar.
Grilled Avocado Toast
4 slices of bread (I like Ezekial sprouted grain bread the best - and it’s gluten free!)
Organic extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1 large ripe avocado
1/4 tsp Himalayan Sea Salt
Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
Sprinkle with olive oil
Combine avocado, lemon juice, and salt, and coarsely mash
Divide amongst the bread. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes.
Note from Fern:
Avocados are my favorite food— I have one every day for dinner sprinked with olive oil and Himalayan sea salt. Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamins C, K, folate and B6, and they are a fabulous all-natural beauty food (superb for your skin). Their fats are monounsaturated—the good kind that can help lower bad cholesterol levels and they are free of trans fat and cholesterol. Feel good about diving in to that big bowl of guac. Your skin, hair, and heart will surely thank you.
