Avocado Toast (See Jane Make)

I have a running list of New Year resolutions in my head.  I'm sure many will be broken by next week and some won't even be given a sporting chance, but one I'd like to try and keep is to eat breakfast on weekdays.  I tend to choose sleep over breakfast and usually resort to grabbing a soy latte to both wake me up and tide me over until lunch.  There once was a time when I ate breakfast everyday (and not just brunch on the weekends) and I'd like to get back into that routine.  

I'll be the first to admit that I'm much more productive when I've had a small (and quick) meal in the morning so a perfect start for me is avocado toast.  Simply mash one avocado in a bowl, add the juice of a lemon, salt, pepper, spread on toast (I used a whole wheat english muffin) and sprinkle with red pepper flakes.

Did you make any New Year resolutions?

look yummy :):)

Summer said...

Mmmm, looks so good, I love toast and avocado, must try them together. :) I always skip breakfast too, haha. My NY resolutions are to lose some more weight, blog every other day, sort my school stuff out and find a job. :)

The juice of a lemon?! I've added lime juice to my avocados to prevent browning, but is the lemon for that reason or for flavor? Either way, it looks delicious!

I absolutely love avocado. This toast looks amazing<3


Yaya said...

That's one of my personal FAVOURITE quick healthy breakfasts. =)

Good luck ;)

Nicole said...

Wow, I have never heard of this breakfast treat before. Do you mash the advocado that morning or the night before?

Anna Jane said...

@Doux - the lemon prevents browning AND adds a little depth to the avocado (great with salt and pepper). I think lime would make it too guacamole-ish (just my opinion, though).
@Nicole - I mash an avocado right before I spread it to keep it fresh and green--only takes about 30 seconds to mash it up :)

LOVE avocados. My resolution is to highlight others' strengths/talents more than my own. So if a friend is a good writer, then I want to genuinely praise her amazing talent.

Morgan said...

i love your blog 100X more now after this avocado post. i have a slight addiction to them.


skippysays said...

I used to be the same way, but seriously once you make yourself get into the routine you end up NEEDING that breakfast. I never make anything that takes long or is fancy on weekdays, but something like this is perfect :)

This sounds so good, I think I want to make some for lunch! I've been wanting to do the same but I've been doing juices and smoothies. I have a great recipe I'll put up on Thursday.


Ashley {styleash} said...

This recipe looks amazing, and simple! I need to get better about eating breakfast too but when I can sleep for an extra 20 minutes it's just so hard!

Thanks for sharing!

Andrea said...

This loos really tasty. Maybe I'll give it a try, but actually I'm also more on team 'sleep longer-skip breakfast' haha ;)
Wonderful and Marvelous

Hannah said...

i've recently developed an obsession with avocado, so I'll definitely be trying this


Olga said...

Sarah said...

That looks delicious, and it's so simple! Definitely trying this!


Head to Toe Chic said...

That looks so good! One of my resolutions is also to eat breakfast on a regular basis. I got into the bad habit of skipping it during the week.


Josie said...

What a great resolution! This is easy and tasty and good for you... I should give this one a shot too.

Christina said...

Chloe Jacqueline said...

Your avocado toast sounds delish! I am working on being more healthy, and well I am starting with eating breakfast as well! Its the most important meal of the day, and I hardly ever eat it! Shame on me! Good for you for coming up with yummy, quick, healthy recipes to have breakfast!

Leigh said...

That looks really tasty. I like how you staged the photos and took a picture after each bite, hehe!

I have an avocado at home - it's what's for breakfast tomorrow.


Kate said...

So glad you posted this! It looked so tasty in your instagram, and even tastier in this post! Definitely going to try this soon, I am a huge avocado fan! I'm bad at eating breakfast too, and really should put more of an effort into eating it daily!

Happy New Year!



♥B said...

That looks soo good. I think that'd be too savory for me for breakfast but I think it'd be a great lunch snack.


Nicole said...

Jane, I have been testing out your advocado toast this week and it is soooo delicious, healthy and even really holds me over until lunch. Thanks so much for the idea and hope you have been keeping your NY breakfast resolution ;)

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said...

lacey said...
