The New Year is upon us, and that means New Year’s resolutions. Every year I have a long list of things that never actually happen! I’m sure most people are like that. The thing is, goals, or resolutions, have to be attainable. I always say I want to eat healthier, but never set myself up to be successful.
This year things are going to change. One of my goals this year is to eat healthier breakfasts. I am horrible about breakfast, half the time I don’t eat it at all. I’ve been looking for ways to create healthier breakfasts that aren’t going to take a lot of time or make a huge mess.
My new favorite is Avocado Toast on Three Bakers 7 Ancient Grains bread. Avocados have all kinds of fantastic omega three’s in them, plus Three Bakers bread is packed with nutrients. The great thing is, you can have a lot of fun playing with your toppings, so it’s never dull.
Some of my favorite ways to top avocado toast are with poached eggs, a light citrus salad, or pesto. So easy and so delicious.
If avocado toast hasn’t become part of your breakfast routine, it’s time to add it in. Enjoy!

- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Toast bread.

With Poached Egg
If you have never poached an egg before, don’t fret. It’s simple! Just bring some water to a simmer and gently place your egg in the water. Let it cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the yolk is as hard or runny as you like it.
- Bring water to simmer in saucepan.
- Carefully place egg in water.
- Allow to cook 3-5 minutes, or until yolk is desired doneness.
With Citrus Salad
Citrus salad is another favorite topping. I love the citrus flavors with creamy avocado and toasty bread. I combine orange, grapefruit, red onion, and cilantro with a bit of salt and pepper and it is perfection.
- ½ Grapefruit, sliced
- 1 Orange, sliced
- ¼ cup chopped Cilantro
- 2 Tablespoons Red onion, chopped
- Combine all ingredients.
- Salt & pepper to taste.
Pesto is also fantastic on avocado toast, but I cheat. My husband is allergic to basil, so I don’t ever keep fresh basil in the house. On occasion, I’ll buy a small container of pesto and add it to my avocado toast, with just a smidge of red onion!
- 2 Tablespoons Store Bought Pesto
- 1 Tablespoon Red Onion
- Sprinkle chopped onion over toast.
- Top with Pesto
