One of the most interesting things that I’ve learned during our avocado series is that the abundance of healthy fat and fiber in avocados makes you feel fuller for longer, which can lead to weight loss. An avocado a day and I get thinner? Sign me up!

To make sure that I get some avocado into my diet every day, I decided to try to eat it for breakfast. There are lots of things you can do, like scramble some egg whites and top with diced avocado. Or, smash up some avocado and put it on toast. Avocado toast. Mmmm.

For this one, I added protein in the way of Greek yogurt. So there’s the filling fat and fiber and also the protein that I crave. It’s a perfect breakfast or snack that really highlights this wonder fruit. Enjoy!
