Breakfast boost? Avocado on toast

We all know that eating a healthy breakfast is essential to good health. I know lots of times we can get stuck in a rut, eating the same breakfast over and over again, and getting bored, even though we may be making healthy choices.

One of my favorites for a breakfast choice is avocado on toast. Avocado is a superfood for a variety of reasons. This green superfood is known to lower your cholesterol due to the mono saturated fats found in avocado. It provides you with 30 percent of this healthy fat every day. It will also keep your bad cholesterol at bay, which in turn helps reduce strokes and heart disease, which by the way is rising in women.

Avocado also works to boost your brain. Loaded with vitamin E, and omega 3 fatty acids, these are critical to keep your brain working optimally.

This green superfood also helps with weight loss. They are rich in fiber, and monounsaturated fatty acids. It helps you to experience hunger less often, and helps your body digestive system work more properly. With less hunger, you will stave off more calories.

Avocados help your blood pressure stay in tact, and helps maintain overall good health. Avocados are loaded with potassium, which in turn plays a huge role in keeping your blood pressure down. It provides you with approximately 14 percent of what your body needs daily.

 Toss up your breakfast options weekly, and try an avocado on toast. Sprinkled with a little pepper, it’s a great breakfast option, or add an avocado to your egg whites. There are many ways to incorporate that superfood into some of your meals. Your health will thank you.
