"To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life."
I've made a genuine effort to eat natural foods. Good-bye prepackaged treats, artificially sweetened and sugar free snacks. Hello simple and wholesome and real.
The other day I came across this wonderfully healthy, easy and metabolism boosting recipe. "Must try," I thought to myself.
I'd like to tell you that I'm some sort of gourmet chef and that I constantly dabble with exotic ingredients, because of course, I do not. But we'll just pretend, ok? wink~nudge~nudge
Sooo... if you promise to be highly impressed, I promise to share my new obsession.
The shopping list:
1 slice of bread- you choose. The crustier the better, in my opinion.
A splash of sea-salt
Peal and smash a ripe avocado
Toast (or not) a slice of bread
Spread smashed avocado over bread
Splash with sea-salt (my personal favorite)
Red pepper flakes (Yum!- I loved this variation.)
Freshly ground pepper
A drizzle of olive-oil
I'll be lying if I said that this hasn't served as a breakfast, lunch and/or snack throughout this lovely Christmas vacation. Talk about versatile, healthy and delicious.
