Beautiful, delicious and simple to prepare......Here is why I call this Avocado Toast with Watermelon Radish my "Beauty Breakfast":

Avocado is the true beauty food - Loaded with healthy fats and nutrients that your skin, hair and nails will love.

Watermelon radish is full of fiber, hydration, and minerals.  It adds a beautiful color and texture and has a really mild flavor. You can find watermelon radishes at most grocery stores.  (It looks like a turnip on the outside with a long root.  You do not see the vibrant red inside until you slice it.)

Sesame or Hemp seeds add protein plus another dose of good fats, in particular omega-3’s.

For the bread, choose something that’s high-quality and whole grain. Read the ingredient list and skip anything with hydrogenated oils, added sugar, or enriched flour. I love a crusty bread that contains a variety of whole grains and seeds.

Watermelon Radish Avocado Toast

  •     1 slice high-quality whole grain bread (I love the Seeduction Loaf from Whole Foods bakery)
  •     1/2 small avocado
  •     watermelon radish, thinly sliced
  •     about 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds or hemp seeds
  •     pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt

Directions: Lightly toast your bread. Thinly slice a watermelon radish. (I used a handheld mandoline) Layer the top with slices of avocado and watermelon radish slices. Sprinkle with  seeds and a pinch of sea salt.

Enjoy!
