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!

Brown Bag It!

Anytime my wife and the mother of our two daughters heads out on a long flight I hook her up like a Fit Father should. No need in searching for GMO, processed or fast foods in the airport when 20 minutes of home prep can lead to nutritional happiness in the friendly skies. Moreover, on the road you never know what mood your taste buds will be in so I always prepare a few options for Misa to choose from.

Meal 1) TLT = Tempeh, Lettuce and Tomatoe sandwich on whole grain toast. But I use kale instead.

Meal 2) Fresh, steamed, organic kale and onions seasoned with nutritional yeast, garlic and Braggs Liquid Aminos served over quinoa.

Meal 3) Fit Fathers Bowl: Brown Rice, the kale, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes and onions.

Remember, never accept an excuse for not eating healthy no matter where you are; home, on the road or out with friends. Your health is your future. Eat clean!

Lunch today was simple, quick and fulfilling. First begin boiling whole wheat pasta of choice for 10 minutes or so. Using water (no oil), separately stir fry onions, mushrooms, already boiled potatoes, already steamed broccoli and extra firm organic tofu. After 5 minutes add in the vegan pesto and season with garlic powder, sea salt and sesame seeds. Drain the noodles and combine all ingredients. Of course you can use your veggies of choice. The kids crush this meal every time. Enjoy.
