Healthy Eats: Avocado Egg Bake

  
Breakfast is the most important and just so happens to be my favorite meal of the day. When I have to leave home for early morning clients, I typically make a green smoothie to-go. On the days when I have the morning off or have a later start, I enjoy taking the time to make a sit-down breakfast like this delicious Avocado Egg Bake!

Avocados and eggs are the perfect combination for a morning meal as they are packed with protein and fiber, that will keep you satisfied until your next meal. Try this easy recipe and feel free to use your favorite toppings like tomatoes, basil, cheese, and bacon.

_______________________________

Prep Time: 5min

Cook Time: 15-20min

Serves: 1-2ppl

_______________________________

Ingredients:

– 1 medium size avocado, halved and pitted

– 2 eggs

– salt and pepper to taste 

– red pepper flakes (optional)

– 1tbs feta cheese (optional)

– 1 tsp chives (optional)

Procedures:

1 — Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

2 — Scoop out a small portion of the center of each half of the avocado with a spoon.

3 —  Crack 1 egg open into each half of the avocado, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

4 — Bake 15-20min, then top with red pepper flakes, chives, and feta cheese (or your favorite toppings) and serve.

_______________________________

Tips: Make sure your avocado is a big enough size to be able to hold the eggs. Also, be sure to use a baking pan that can support your avocado to prevent the eggs from spilling off the side. I tried to use a tray at first and my egg was spilling so I opted for a cupcake baking pan and placed foil inside to keep the avocado halves in place.

Healthy Eats: Berry Popsicles

  
As we enjoy the hot days of summer it is essential to stay hydrated! I remember as kid I use to love when the ice cream truck drove through our neighborhood so I could get my favorite popsicles. Most of those sweet treats however are loaded with sugar and have no nutritional value. 

No worries though… Try my Berry Popsicle recipe that is a healthy version of your favorite childhood treat. They are easy to make, tasty, refreshing, and are made with real fruit and coconut water that gives you nutrients and keeps you hydrated!

All you need is a blender and popsicle holders. I use my nutribullet to blend and I found these popsicle holders at my local dollar store.

   
 
Ingredients:

* 1/2 banana

* 1 handful of berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries)

* 1/2 cup coconut water

* 1/2 cup almond milk

Procedures:

1 — Place a few slices of berries into each popsicle holder.

2 — Put all ingredients together and blend using a traditional blender or nutribullet.

3 — Pour blended mix into popsicle holders, freeze for 4-6hrs, then serve.

    
My popsicles turned out great and I hope yours will too! You can always modify this recipe by using some of your other favorite fruits like lemons and oranges. Making this treat is also a fun activity that you can do with your family. Share your own versions of this recipe in the comments below.
