Avo + Egg Bake


I just made the most perfect combination for lunch using Avocados from Mexico, greens and homemade hummus! I’m sure by now, you’ve seen me post about healthy blood sugar balance and what’s needed in order to fulfill this.  I add a healthy fat, protein and fibre into every one of my meals, and this lunch recipe here portrays this perfectly! Gratefully my avocados were perfectly ripe for this recipe and it was a hit! I always shop for Avocados from Mexico because they are larger than most and honestly have the creamiest texture ever. Not to mention, that vibrant green colour you see once you cut open the avocado is enough for me to want to add it into my daily routine! If you ever shop at Whole Foods, I highly suggest checking out their selection because they are almost always ripe.  Here’s the recipe:  Ingredients:  1 Avocado from Mexico  2 organic eggs 1 cup spinach  1 lime  1/2 cucumber  1/2 shaved green cabbage 2 basil leaves 1 tbsp avocado oil  Spices to garnish  Hummus for dressing, or you can make your own like I did!  Method:  1.Turn the oven on to bake at 450.   2.Cut the avocado in half and make sure to take the pit out. With a spoon, scoop out as much of the avocado needed in order for an egg to fit in.  3.Crack the egg into each half and put it in the oven to bake for 13 minutes.  While the eggs are baking, you can start on the salad. I like to just add all of the remaining ingredients together and mix it in a big bowl. Squeeze the lime on the spinach to help with the absorption of iron!  You can also make your own hummus like I did. I just added a can of chickpeas into the blender with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 of a white onion, 1 tsp mountain salt and some pepper! It’s so easy to make and it’s much healthier when made on your own.  Once the eggs are all done, you can add them to your salad and what I like to do is scoop them out of their shell and actually mix it into the salad! It’s a great protein boost and the yolk will nicely spread onto the salad. Drizzle the hummus onto your salad and add some hemp hearts for added nutrients!  I love this recipe because it’s super quick and easy but adds a little creativity to your regular lunch.  If you work in an office space or from home, you can even make this earlier on in in the day and just bring it to work for your lunch break. Having something like this for lunch will keep you satiated so you aren’t craving extra sugar or getting that 2 pm crash. I’m so excited for you to try this recipe out! Let me know what your thoughts are in the comments below. I can’t to whip up this 20 minute lunch recipe up again tomorrow!
