The Secret To Taking Your Toast To The Next Level – Saturday Strategy
POSTED ON May 12, 2017 BY Drew Canole
Do you love a good piece of toast in the morning? I do too! Some people think you have to give up all things delicious if you’re going to be healthy, but lucky for you and me this is NOT even close to true!
Avocado toast is an easy and delicious vegan breakfast option. And it doesn’t have to be the same old avocado toast every day of the week! There is actually a lot you can do to dress up your toast and make it fancier and more tasty. Be sure to check out the recipe at the end of this article!
Benefits Of Avocado
The humble avocado packs quite the nutritional punch! I suggest eating these every single day because of the power they have to support your body and help you progress in your transformation.
Avocados are pretty awesome because they are a vegan, plant-based, healthy source of fat, filled with potassium, magnesium, folate and vitamins A, C, E, K, B6 that keep you satisfied, healthy, happy and at a healthy weight.
Avocados are the Aztec symbol of love and fertility. It makes sense since they don’t self-pollinate – they need another avocado tree close by for that. Avocados are great for the ovaries and are packed with folate, which has been shown to boost fertility in both men and women.
Folate is also an essential nutrient for brain development in unborn children and has been shown to help prevent serious birth defects.
Improve Symptoms Of Metabolic Syndrome
One of the most recent studies on avocados found that they may help you to combat metabolic syndrome. Different components of metabolic syndrome include high blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure and body mass index and can lead to cardiovascular disease and type 2 Diabetes. If avocados can help with this, they can be a true lifesaver.
High Levels Of Potassium
Avocados contain more potassium than bananas! This mineral is essential for keeping electrical gradients in the body’s cells balanced. Studies have found that getting enough potassium in the diet helps to reduce blood pressure.
Packed With Heart-Healthy Fats
Avocados are packed with oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid and anti-inflammatory that has been shown to support a healthy immune system. Avocado oil also has a high smoke point, which makes it an excellent choice for cooking.
You are not what you eat… you are what you ABSORB!
You can eat all the healthy food you want, but if you’re body isn’t absorbing it, it isn’t doing you any good. Some vital nutrients (including vitamins A, D, E and K and some antioxidants) are fat-soluble. This means that in order for your body to digest and utilize them properly, they must be paired with fat.
One study found that adding avocado or avocado oil to food increased antioxidant absorption by 250%! That means avocados can help you to increase the nutrients you absorb from other foods.
Support Good Eyesight
Avocados contain important antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin that support eyesight and eye health. These antioxidants have been linked to a reduced risk for eye issues such as cataracts and macular degeneration.
If you’re feeling fancy, add a little cashew cheese
Toast a piece of gluten free bread.
Smash avocado on top.
Add arugula, tomatoes, sea salt and lox if you’re feeling fancy.
Drizzle with a little olive oil for an added dose of healthy fats.
Fun fact: Did you know that avocado is actually a fruit? Because it has a seed, it’s classified as a fruit!
