Avocado Egg Bake
 
This may look or sound a little strange, but I promise you it's delicious! If you love avocados and eggs over easy, you are going to love this. This is a great cleanse friendly recipe that you can have as a snack or a meal. I just made ½ and avocado and 1 egg because I wanted a light meal, but you can use both halves and 2 eggs for something more substantial. Top it off with a little Himalayan sea salt and some Sriracha sauce to add some spice. It's so easy to make and so very satisfying.

Notes
In my opinion Avocado’s might just be one of the healthiest foods you can eat. One avocado gives you an ample serving of fiber, protein, and fat. In particular they contain all of your good healthy fats that help lower the bad cholesterol in your body. And they also contain high levels of nutrients such as Folate and Lutein, which helps to support eye health. Avocados lower blood pressure, and reduce the risk of stroke. They bring more oxygen and blood flow to the brain, improving cognitive function. The fiber content promotes healthy digestion. They are known for a wide variety of anti-inflammatory benefits due to its high nutrient content. This makes it a great immune booster and cancer fighter. Overall one of the best foods you can eat, hands down!


Eggs have gotten a bad rap through the years with the whole high cholesterol thing. But current studies have shown that the consumption of eggs does not actually raise cholesterol, and in fact it actually promotes heart health and weight loss. That is as long as you eat the yolk too. None of this egg white only stuff! All the good nutrients are in the yolk. So indulge in the extra 40 calories, it’s not going to hurt your waist line.
