Caprese Avocado Toast

This is my first post in a series of higher protein breakfast options. Protein at breakfast can be extremely helpful for setting the calorie tone of the day. You’ll be less likely to crave that mid-morning donut if you start out with a dose of AM protein. Balancing the protein with high fiber carbohydrates and healthy fat is sure to boost your morning productivity.

Caprese Avocado Toast

Ingredients

2 slices whole grain bread (like Ezekial)

1/2 avocado, sliced

1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese

Chopped fresh basil and grape tomatoes

Freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions

Toast bread. Top with sliced avocado, cottage cheese, basil, tomato and ground pepper.

Nutrition Note: Experiment with adding cottage cheese to your morning meal. 1/2 cup gives you 14 grams of protein. Added to 2 slices of Ezekial toast and your starting your day with a whopping 22 grams of protein.
