If you’re anything like me (and the rest of the Mum’s on this planet) you’re really not the best at feeding yourself throughout the day. And by that I mean, drinks basically become entire food groups / meals, and before you know it it’s 6pm and you’ve survived the day on 3 cups of tea! I’ve gained a little bit of weight lately, and I’m attributing some of the blame across to the old ‘brunch skipping’. To try and combat this, and actually look after myself and my body – I’m putting more effort into nourishing and fuelling myself throughout the day. This is obviously a lot easier said than done, because, well kids and their mouths take priority. Regardless, I’m going to start sharing some quick, easy, nutritious breakfast / lunch ideas that will leave you satisfied and your sanity in tact. You’re welcome :).
First up is 4 ways with Avocado and Sourdough.
You’ll obviously need:
- Sourdough slices – I like the ones with grains, nuts and seeds on top.
- Avocado – I used half an avo for 4 slices of bread.Toppings – You can totally be creative and add whatever you like but my go to are;
- Cherry Tomatos
- Sesame Seeds
- Herb/Spices Seasoning – I use a herb and garlic mix
- Pepitas / Pumpkin Seeds
- Poppy Seeds
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Basically it certainly isn’t rocket science – toast the bread, I like to add butter but if you’re trying to be super healthy you can skip this, spread/smash/squish avo onto the bread, add your toppings how you like – either all of them, on all of them, or individually. Personally, I sprinkled the herb and garlic seasoning over all of mine, then topped one with feta, one with cherry tomatoes & poppy seeds, one with pepitas and the last with sesame seeds.
