Happy to say we made it through the weekend. Onward and upward, right? Right.
Today’s post is brought to you by Avocado Toast. I mean, it’s just the best. I could literally eat it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Talk about variety… or not. Variety is a big thing I am working on right now. Trying to get out of the ruts I get myself into and in doing so, I have thrown out all of the ‘rules’ I feel like I am still living by. For quite some time, I have noticed that I am not always listening to my body. While I am much more open to food choices, there is still a bit of hesitance around certain foods. So the rules are gone. Absolutely no food is off limits. There is no bad food. And you know what? I am learning a LOT. More to come over the next several weeks, but I talked to you about avocado toast and then led you on a complete tangent. So back to the goods.
There is a restaurant in town that I love. The atmosphere, the ambience and the food, they have the whole package. And they serve my very favorite avocado toast in the whole world. Maplewood is the restaurant, hit it up if you are in Cincy. So here is the problem. I cannot be at Maplewood every single day. And my wallet says that eating out too frequently is not going to help me save any money. So what did I have to do? I had to recreate the recipe of course! That way on the days I can’t be there, I can still enjoy the goodness.
Better yet? The recipe is so simple! And it combines some unlikely flavors to make your avo smeared bread just glorious. 5 ingredients. That’s it. The crazy thing is that I don’t even care for honey, but I am OBSESSED with it on this toast. So no more time to delay, grab the bread and a ripe avocado and you are practically there already! I promise you will have problems getting out of this food rut once you try it!
