Motivational Monday, continued! 🙂 I am a firm believer that your body needs carbs after a long cardio session. One of my favorite post-workout snacks is my Sweet & Savory Avocado Toast! It is a yummy and quick snack to power up after a run.
What you will need: an avocado (sliced), oregano leaves, lemon juice, basil oil (olive or avocado oil works great too), mixed greens (I like to use mixed greens with arugula to give it a spicy taste), sea salt, fresh ground pepper, 2 slices of honey wheat bread, & balsamic glaze (can be found at your local grocery store). First, I toast the bread (butter is optional), add the greens, avocado slices, spices, lemon juice & oil (all in this order, respectively).
And, voila! The sweet flavor of the balsamic glaze & honey bread tastes amazing with the savory flavors from the spices. Not only is it delish, but it is super filling and healthy. Greens and avocados are great for glowing skin. Sea salt helps with mineral & electrolyte replenishment that may have been lost during your cardio sesh. Double YAY! There is no right or wrong way to make a delicious avocado toast dish. I like to get creative with it by mixing up the spices and toppings! Enjoy! XO ~Kelle
