The Art of Simple Goodness

"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."
 ~John Burroughs

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 avocado
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.

Yummy. Avocada is soooo good with a bit of lemon and lime juice too. I want to make that back bean and corn salsa....I just need the time to cut and mix and cook all those ingredients!
