Avocado is a super food

Avocados are considered one of the world’s  healthiest foods, and rightly so. Although they have a high fat content, it is the good kind of fat, or the monounsaturated fat that the heart loves and asks for a second portion.

The proven benefits of eating avocados are countless, but just to name a few are cancer prevention, healthier heart, lower cholesterol, diabetes prevention and so on. So do eat avocados as often as you can. Just make sure they are fully ripe though.

Eggs are as well considered super healthy. High in protein, essential vitamins and minerals, eggs are wrongly thought to raise the cholesterol level in the blood.

Studies have showed that actually the eggs do not affect the cholesterol in the blood.

So no need for my husband to throw away the egg yolk when he makes himself an omelette 😀 I mean, l would’t eat an omelette just with egg whites, but hey ho.

Healthy breakfast ideas

For the ultimate healthy breakfast, swap the white bread for wholegrain bread. Eating healthy has never been easier. No more skipping breakfast when this can be ready in 5 minutes.

And talking about omelettes, l do have a good recipe for that, and it’s out of this word good: World’s Best Omelette. If l say so myself, it must be good.

Or, my new favourite breakfast on the go, the fantastic Egg Muffin Cupswhich are not only insanely delicious, but also healthy.

Don’t get me wrong, l do love a Full English breakfast, but if l go for a vegetarian breakfast like this one, l’m also happy. What about you, do you like a good breakfast?
