Whoops! I was supposed to post-this yesterday for “Meatless Monday” but I guess I’ll share it with you for “Meatless Tuesday” LOL. This is a great low-calorie, filling snack that you can make quickly. It has “good” fats in it like olive oil and avocado and since there’s no cooking involved, you can do it at the office or where ever. The best part? The ingredients are CHEAP!
Quick Tomato-Avocado Snack
2 slices organic beefsteak tomato (those are the big ones!)
1/2 hass avocado (those are the small bumpy ones, sometimes called “california” avocados)
A few leaves of fresh basil (optional)
2 organic brown rice cakes or toasted whole grain bread
1 tsp olive oil
Mash avocado meat in bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spread the avocado onto each rice cake or slice of toasted bread, then top with 1 slice each of tomato. Top tomato with drizzled live oil and more cracked pepper. Eat it like an open-faced sandwich or a pizza. A simple and healthy low-calorie and tasty snack!
