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!
