Lemony Avocado Toast

Lemony Avocado Toast

This quick and easy breakfast, lunch, or snack is a great way to jazz up your toast with nourishing avocados. Avocados are a wonderful source of the antioxidant, vitamin E, as well as heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Lemon zest and juice amplify the flavor and add vitamin C. Serve on top of whole grain bread and top with an egg or enjoy with a hard-boiled egg, if desired. Sprinkle with Everything Bagel seasoning for extra flavor and nutrition.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Serves: 4

  1. Place bread in the toaster and set to toast for a few minutes until golden.
