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.
