HIGH PROTEIN AVO ON TOAST
Think the days of the first home owners breakfast (avocado toast) is long gone for you when you want to count your macros? Think again!
Stretch your fats out with low-fat cottage cheese
and add in protein while your at it. Add to the creaminess of the avocado without sacrificing the flavour.
Macros (calculated using the FNC Diet Builder)
75g of ripe avocado (roughly 1/2 a standard avo)
100g of low fat cottage cheese
1/2 a lime
2 slices of toast
Pinch of salt & pepper for flavour
**Add some spice with hot sauce!
In a small bowl, mash the avocado and cottage cheese together with a fork. Squeeze the juice from 1/2 a lime and sprinkle the mixture with a pinch of sea salt and pepper.
Spread half the mixture on top of each slice of toast and garnish with a sprinkle of red chili flakes and hot sauce.
Feel free to add other toppings like a fried egg for more protein or slow-roasted grape tomatoes.
Make sure to use a ripe avocado. When you squeeze it, it should feel soft but not mushy. To store the other half of the avocado, squeeze some lemon or lime juice over the uncut half and wrap it in plastic wrap to keep it from browning, taking care to press plastic wrap against the flesh. Use the leftover avocado within 48 hours
