Anti-Inflammatory Toast (bad name, great dish!)

15 Jul

I’ve mentioned my fondness for Dr. Oz and here’s another recipe courtesy of his website.  I admit the title of the dish might not seem very appetizing, but keep an open mind.  Give this toast a try and I bet you’ll like it.

Ingredients

2 slices whole grain bread

1 fresh lemon

1 avocado, sliced

Extra virgin olive oil

Chili powder*

Directions: Toast slices of bread.  Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of fresh lemon.  Top off with avocado slices and a sprinkling of Chili powder.

*The recipe called for Chili flakes, but I used powder instead.

I’m not a big fan of breakfast and am always looking at new recipes to encourage me to eat the most important meal of the day.  I’m a huge avocado lover and every bit of this recipe sounded delicious to me (except the name).  Not sure why it’s anti-inflammatory and if you happen to know, please share with us all.  Whatever the reason, it was scrumptious, super simple to make and quick.  I made two pieces and was actually quite full afterward. Next time I’ll probably just make one slice and have a full glass of water with it.  The tang of the lemon combined with the spice of the chili powder were great complements with the avocado.  Give it a try and let me know what you think.
