This Simple Breakfast Can't Be Beat: Scrambled Eggs and Avocado Toast
Sometimes the best meals are the most simple. Just take a Millennial’s favorite breakfast: avocado toast. We LOVE a classic avocado toast. But we also like to jazz it up a bit. One of our favorite variations is scrambled eggs and avocado toast. While this may seem like a pretty basic combo, the power of these ingredients is strong.
To start, the healthy monounsaturated fat and fiber from the avocado help to slow down digestion, which may help keep you satiated and full until your next meal. Combine that with the protein from two eggs, even more fiber from the whole-grain toast, and you’ve got yourself a meal that will ensure a fully-fueled morning. Add a side of fresh fruit to this paring and you’ve got yourself a well-rounded meal!
You know this recipe is super powerful because it was inspired by Rough Around the Edges trainers, Michelle and Thekla, who are professional stuntwomen. If a meal has enough energy to keep a celebrity stunt double powered through the early AM hours, you shouldn’t be surprised when it quickly finds its way into your weekly routine.
And it only gets better from here, because the preparation for this meal couldn’t be any easier. Scramble up the eggs in just a few minutes while the bread warms up in the toaster, slice up a quarter of an avocado, and before you know it, it’s all ready to be combined into one magical mix.
Pro-tip 1: Keep your cut avocado fresh by brushing it with oil. This will prevent it from browning before you eat the rest of it!
Another great thing about scrambled eggs and avocado toast is that you can make it all year long. Eggs and bread never go out of season, and fun fact — neither do avocados! You can find a variety of avocado that’s in season every month of the year.
Just swap your fruit for whatever you have on hand, and you’ve got yourself a breakfast fit for a champion (or a professional stuntwoman).
Pro-tip 2: If you’re making this a staple of your breakfast routine, add in some variety by switching between whole grain english muffins and whole grain toast. (BTW, science says you should probably only eat six or seven egg yolks per week. So be sure to enjoy different kinds of recipes throughout the week, too — like overnight oats!)
