Avocado Broccoli Sprout Toast

Who can resist this super easy and delicious breakfast?!

Broccoli Sprouts harvested at just four to five days old, broccoli sprouts are the baby versions of adult vegetables. A 3-ounce serving of broccoli sprouts provides 35 calories, 5 grams of carbohydrate, 2 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. The sprouts also pack sulforaphane, a powerful plant chemical with health benefits.

Avocado ~ One-third of a medium avocado has 80 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making it a great nutrient dense food choice. The avocado is virtually the only fruit that contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fat – good fat! Avocados are naturally sodium, sugar, and cholesterol free.

Food for Life, Ezekiel 4:9 Bread, Original Sprouted, Organic, 24oz (1 Loaf)

Ezekiel Bread~

Ezekiel bread is different for several reasons. Almost all breads contain added sugar, Ezekiel bread doesn’t have ANY! It is also made from organic, sprouted whole grains. The sprouting process changes the nutrient composition of the grains significantly.

In contrast to most commercial breads, which consist primarily of refined wheat or pulverized whole wheat, Ezekiel bread contains several different types of grains and legumes:

  • 4 types of cereal grains: Wheat, Millet, Barley and Spelt.
  • 2 types of legumes: Soybeans and Lentils.

All the grains and all the legumes are organically grown and allowed to sprout before they are processed, mixed together and baked to produce the final product.

*I’d like to point out that wheat, barley and spelt all contain gluten, so Ezekiel bread is out of the question for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.

Ingredients:

1 slice of Ezekiel Bread

4 cherry tomatoes

1/3 avocado

1 tsp broccoli sprouts

a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Chia seeds (optional)

Directions:

  1. Toast bread in toaster oven or regular toaster
  2. Mash 1/3 avocado on warm bread, drizzle olive oil on top. salt and pepper.
  3. cut cherry tomatoes in half and put on one side of the bread. Add broccoli sprouts to the other side.
  4. I like to sprinkle chia seeds on top of mine for extra fiber and protein. Enjoy!!
