Are you all swept up in the craziness of fall? It’s funny how life just goes from zero to sixty in about 1 minute right after Labor Day. I know cooking is usually the first thing to get taken off the to-do list when life gets busy – it’s way easier to make a pass through the drive through or get take out on the way home from picking up the kids from soccer, or a late night at work. But let’s see if I can convince you otherwise…
When I don’t have time or energy to cook, I usually turn to avocados. Their velvety smoothness and creaminess comes from heart healthy monounsaturated fat, and because they’re pretty high in fat, they’re also really filling – but in a healthy way. They’re good in so many dishes – just check my avocado Pinterest board – but I love them on toast or on a crusty bread sandwich. Just add some sliced tomato, fresh basil and mozzarella (I also love a handful of arugula) and call that dinner.
Make sure you drizzle the entire thing with extra virgin olive oil and dig in with a fork and knife – that makes it feel more like dinner 🙂
Do you have any favorite avocado sandwiches?
