Avocado Toast

I recently tried Vibe Health Bar’s Avocado Toast and it was delicious. I was thinking… I can do something like this at home easily, no problem. I did and I have duplicated it so many times since. This is just so quick, easy, and makes a fast breakfast when you are short on time. I love it for lunch too. It taste so good, it’s so easy and so good for you too.

Health Benefits

Avocado’s are known for their anti-aging properties, lowering bad cholesterol while boosting good cholesterol and are a good source of fiber. 

Avocado’s aren’t the only star here the red chili pepper flakes are great for boosting metabolism, they are diabetic friendly by helping to reduce high levels of insulin in the blood stream, are a good source of vitamin A which helps boost your immune system. They are also being studied in the fight against prostate cancer.
