Avocado Toast + Cinnamon Apples

Goddess Huntress | Avocado Toast and Cinnamon Apples

My dear friend Vana made this for me during my stay in San Francisco.  It is such the simplest breakfast!  I for one and am an avid eater of avocados for breakfast.  I simply heat up a brown rice tortilla on the stove and fill it with a whole avocado sliced, topped off with a squeeze of lemon and sprinkle of salt…yep, that’s it.  So I was thrilled when she made her flavor filled avocado toast with sliced cinnamon apples.

Avocado Toast

-1 whole avocado (serves 1)

-2 slices of the bread of your choice

-1 half lemon

-red chili flakes

Simply toast your favorite healthy bread (whole grain, gluten-free, etc.). Mash avocado and spread on both toasted pieces. Squeeze lemon on top and sprinkle desired amount of chili flakes.

Cinnamon Apples

-1 apple sliced

-ground cinnamon

Slice and core the apple of your preference.  Sprinkle cinnamon on slices.  Yes. Crazy simple.

While you are munching, let’s talk beauty.

-Avocado reduces inflammation and its good fat is key for the body’s absorption of vitamins A, D, and E which all contribute to healthy, robust skin. Potassium prevents dry skin.

-Apples have collagen and elastin key to skin’s youthfulness. They prevent tissue and cell damage and promote healthy hair. Their B vitamins help prevent acne.  Vitamin C promotes skin cell production.

-Red chili flakes contain beta-carotene, which is then converted to vitamin A, preventing cell damage. It is anti-inflammatory.

-Cinnamon is an anti-bacterial, cleansing our systems.

-Lemon’s vitamin C neutralizes free-radicals. Yes, please!

  1. Yum! In apples the highest concentration of vitamins is just under the skin, so I never peel apples (or if I need to for a recipe, I snack on the peel). No sense in throwing vitamin-y goodness away!
