Happy 2018 beauty bugs!
One of my biggest resolutions for this new year includes getting healthy, but it’s super hard when I barely have enough time to rest my eyes as I’m starting my last semester of college in a couple weeks. I’m also not the most skilled chef that ever lived, but I’m working towards getting better. I want to share my health journey along the way, and I figured I’d kick it off with one of my favorite, fool-proof, inexpensive and QUICK ‘recipes.’
// Shopping List \\
- Favorite bagels (This is an everything bagel, but a whole wheat or multigrain is even better!)
- Red Pepper Flakes
- Black Pepper
- (Optional) Shredded Parmesan Cheese
// How To \\
There’s not much to explain here, but I’ll make it quick. I pop my bagel in the toaster and while it’s toasting, I took my ripe avocado and began to scoop it out. For today, I used a whole avocado because I skipped breakfast and was STARVING after I volunteered at the shelter, but on days you’re not super hungry, half an avocado will do just fine. (Pro Tip: Store half of an avocado in the fridge coated with lemon juice! It will keep it from browning.) I spread my avocado on my toasted bagel and topped it off with black pepper and red pepper flakes! Red pepper flakes add the right amount of spiciness to lend for a
whole lotta flavor. I didn’t
have any shredded parmesan cheese today, but I also love to top off my avo bagels with a sprinkle of some good ole dairy.
This recipe is super simple but one of my absolute favorite lunches! I hope to share more easy and quick healthy recipes for those of us always on the go this year. Keep an eye out for my next blog post coming Thursday.
Until next time!
