Dana’s Fresh and Easy Snack Tip

May 18th, 2018 (franklin)

It’s no secret that I’m not the greatest cook in the world, but when trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle it’s sometimes necessary to put in a little more work when it comes to snacking choices. It can be so easy and tempting to just grab a bag of chips out of the cabinet as a mid-afternoon snack (I myself am a culprit), but I’ve decided to branch out and look into alternative options that are much better for you, and still aren’t going to have a ridiculous amount of prep time.

For this week I decided Greek avocado toast would be a great food to fulfill all these requirements. It’s quick and easy to make, is filling enough to be a post-workout snack (or any snack really), and healthy enough to not leave you feeling guilty about eating it!

What you need:

-Two slices of Bread (I use Pepperidge Farm’s whole grain)

-One avocado

-Original Greek Cream Cheese

-Salt

-Pepper

It’s super simple to make- just toast your bread, spread on a layer of cream cheese, spread a small amount of avocado on top of that, and then put a few more slices of avocado on top. Finally, sprinkle salt and pepper on top for flavor. What’s really great about this is that it’s also super customizable. Other things you could add are smoked salmon, everything bagel seasoning, a fried egg, or anything else you can think of. It’s also a super guilt-free snack- Greek cream cheese has 4x’s the protein and half the fat of normal cream cheese, making it a perfect for after workouts. Not to mention, whole grain is much more nutritious than white bread, and avocados have ton of vitamins, healthy fat, and fiber. Sounds like a win to me!
