Ezekiel avocado toast with spinach & tomato.

Who doesn’t love creamy avocado, fresh tomatoes, and spinach from the garden?

This is a perfect breakfast for Meatless Monday. It’s super quick to make before work and unbelievably tasty! I could have an avocado every day. (I practically do)

Do yourself a favor and get everything but the bagel seasoning. It’s so delicious and I now put it in just about everything. I’m obsessed!!You can find it at Trader Joe’s or online. You won’t be sorry.

Baby Bella Watercress toast

Here are some quick facts and benefits of Watercress. If you aren’t eating it, you should be!

A nutrient-rich perennial plant growing naturally around slow moving water sources, watercress has been known for centuries as an exceptionally nutritious herb for both eating and healing. Used in sandwiches, salads, and steamed as a side dish, it adds a tangy, peppery flavor as well as a plethora of minerals and vitamins – more than that of spinach, milk or oranges.

Vitamins A, C, and K, and phytonutrients like isothiocyanates and gluconasturtiin in watercress strengthen bones, limit neuronal damage, fight infection, help maintain healthy connective tissue, and prevent iron deficiency. Studies have found the compound PEITC in watercress may suppress breast cancer cell development and prevent DNA damage in cells.

You can find this oft-overlooked leafy green in most supermarkets, so give it a try when you make your next green salad or sandwich. Remember, watercress from stagnant water may host harmful parasites or pathogens, so rinse and soak well before eating.
