“OMG, I just had the best lunch ever.”
So went my email to a friend today. It’s funny how something completely, utterly, ridiculously simple could achieve such a satisfying bite. Such was the case with this Creamy Avocado Toast I had today. Bread. Avocado. Sliced turkey. Tomato (oh yes, pretend you see it in the picture). Lemon juice. Salt. That’s it.
And what do you get? A light crunch from the toast. Creaminess from the avocado. A hint of protein from the turkey. Clean eating at its best. And all for five minutes of your time.
Truth be told, add avocado to anything and I am there. T-h-e-r-e. In fact, this dish only called for half an avocado, and I just ate the other half by itself. Love the stuff.
Until Monday … have an awesome weekend! The O’Malley clan will be heading South to dip our toes in some Jersey shore.
Thanks to my readers help, I found the hat I was looking for (on Etsy, of course!). Now to get a little monkey to share it with me.
Creamy Avocado Toast

Toast a slice of whole-grain bread (I used Pepperidge Farm’s whole wheat deli flats). In a small bowl, mash half an avocado with a squeeze of lemon juice and a generous pinch of salt; spread on toast. Top with sliced smoked turkey and tomato slices.
