Sometimes the best eats are made with the simplest ingredients. Avocado toast is not only delicious and easy to make but a great post workout meal. Avocados are high in fat (GOOD FAT), vitamins B, K, and C, as well as potassium. For this recipe all you need are 5 ingredients!

Simple and tasty! The lime gives it some zest, while the paprika adds a bit of a smokey taste. I love that this is a quick and easy meal to make. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, or just a post workout snack. For a healthy breakfast meal add a egg over easy on top!

Would you opt for this healthy meal after a workout?
