Simple Avocado Toast by Fit Fathers

Try our simple, tasty and healthy lunch after an hour of cardio and strength training. Yes, of course it’s vegan. We layered toasted double fiber whole grain bread with traditional hummus, organic avocados and slightly warmed organic tomatoes. The heat within the tomatoes helps release the antioxidant lycopene which in turn protects against prostate cancer in men. Season with a dash of black pepper, garlic powder and Himalayan pink salt.

The meal was served with a Japanese sweet potato and a medley of sautéed collard greens, spinach, kale, beets, onions and Shiitake mushrooms. So, this recipe covers each macronutrient including healthy fats, complex cards and plant-based proteins. Eat clean and enjoy!

Who said eating healthy was expensive and complicated? Well, the Fit Fathers culinary team spent $20 on organic ingredients and made 10 of these bad boys for the kids.

Plantains

First we simmered the plantains in water in a separate pan.

Then we stir fried onions, peppers, red cabbage, mushrooms and pineapple in water. The small amount of water and our choice of seasonings (garlic, vegit, nutritional yeast, Himalayan sea salt and Braggs) makes the perfect oil-free sauce for the veggies.

Afterwards, lightly layer the raw organic collard with a garlic veggie dressing and sliced avocados.
