Avocado and Blue Cheese Toasts recipe shared by Nikki from MyNutriCounter.
Toast is a traditional breakfast food that the British include in every meal that they can. This ranges from the morning rush grab and go breakfast before work, to a Sunday brunch of scrambled eggs and bacon, to the renowned Full English. Originally, toast was a product of traditional country life, however over time toasting stale bread became so common that it eventually became a national food habit throughout the British Isles. This then spread across the world, as toast was introduced into other countries that had been colonized by Britain. But what’s the reason for the obsession? It’s surely the combination of the delicious flavour, enticing smells and versatility, by complementing and enhancing the taste of some of the most delicious foods on our plates.
Our avocado and blue cheese on toast will not only fill up your morning with intriguing flavour but of course will provide nutritional benefits too. In comparison to fresh bread, toasting has been shown to decrease glycemic response, thus reducing the risk of obesity and type II diabetes.
Avocado provides high amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) which are able to improve blood lipid profile and lower the “bad” low-density cholesterol. Avocado consumption is commonly associated with a reduced risk of metabolic syndrome meaning more normalized blood pressure, less blood sugar, less body fat and a reduced chance of an abnormal cholesterol level. A tablespoon of piquant blue-cheese bring together the delicious flavour of these easy-to-cook morning items!
