Avocado Toast with Nutritional Yeast
If you don't have a stash of nutritional yeast in your pantry, run to your local health food store and stock up on these flakes of gold. Nutritional yeast is a vegan's dream, but non-vegans should know about its all-around loveliness too. It's packed with protein-- and has an interesting, slightly nutty flavour that goes a long way. When I was little, we'd sprinkle a couple of tablespoons on popcorn for a healthy alternative to butter.
For a yummy snack that's high in protein, fiber and heart-healthy fats (healthy girl's secret recipe for satiation,) sprinkle a tablespoon of yeast on whole-grain toast and add slices of 1/3 of an avocado. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and kosher salt. You'll be in heaven!
