So this is my awesome lunch. All told, it consists of 2 slices of bread, 1 large Haas avocado, 2 heaping spoonfuls of ground flax seed, 3 moderate spoonfuls of cottage cheese, about 10 drops of Crystal hot sauce, and a few grinds of salt and pepper.

The one slice is just toasted bread, mashed avo, 1/3 the flax seed, salt & pepper. The other is a bit dolled up with the cottage cheese and hot sauce. I can also get more flax seed in there under the cottage cheese. Yum! Omega 3s!

I am satisfied, don’t feel over full or bloated, and have a bit of a tingle in my mouth from the hot sauce. All in all, highly recommend. Toast and avo is so simple, and you can do it up so many different ways. Go sweet by drizzling a bit of honey (local honey is great for allergies) either on top of or underneath your avo. I make a honey, citrus, ginger blend that is also lovely. Put some tuna on top of the avo. Sliced tomato. Run the toast under the broiler to melt a bit if cheese in it, then smash the avo into it. Have an open faced sandwich with a couple slices of turkey layered I. Top of the avo. If you look at the calorie, fat, protein, etc. of all these options, it may seem scary, but avocados are loaded with GOOD fats and so many other things that there is no downside! Screw the apple a day (not really, there’s room in your tummy for both), have an avo a day!!
