Breakfast bar avacado

Breakfast – the most important meal of the day right? Well I like to think so anyway, mainly because it’s the first chance I get to eat after I wake up.

In order for the rest of the day to run smoothly a hearty and nutritious breakfast is required. For me that means I need to pack a realtively large meal in first thing, which I am not complaining about at all.

Last summer whilst I was in London I sat down for breakfast in the stylish All Bar One Butlers Wharf overlooking the River Thames, where I proceeded to scout the menu for something a little bit different.

Immediately my eyes were drawn to one ingridient which I had came across before but had never had the pleasure of tasting; Avocado. I decided to take a stab in the dark and sample this unbeknown fruit.

Now I will admit that an Avocado will not set your tastebuds alight and make them want to dance the night away – instead they compliment other foods well and benefit from a smooth and juicy texture.

But its the not the taste that matters when it comes to Avocado’s – it’s the amazing health and nutritional benefits that they pack in abundance. Just take a look at these…

  • ABSORBS OTHER NUTRIENTS

  • EASES ARTHRITUS SYMPTOMS

  • REDUCES RISK OF CERTAIN CANCERS

  • LOWERS CHOLESTEROL

  • BOOSTS EYE HEALTH

  • PROMOTES WEIGHT LOSS

Not bad ey? If you want to delve further into the world of Avocado’s and all their god-like benefits then head over to Medical Daily, where they explain the wonder fruits miracle like powers in greater depth.

Don’t forget to remove the nut…

So now for the part where I tell you why I’ve been rambling on about a fruit for nearly 300 words. After purchasing a pack of Avocado’s and letting them ripen in the fruit bowl for a few days, it was time to put them to use.

As I am trying to put on weight and muscle it’s key I add elements of protein into my breakfast (that’s not the first time I’ll mention protein just to warn you), so on this paticular morning I opted for the trusty egg.

On the topic of eggs, I discovered recently that I can no longer eat the yolk of an egg as it has been a culprit in flaring up my excema. I wish I knew that at a time where I had poached eggs almost every day of my life…but moving on swiftly, I now remove the yolk before cooking to leave the egg whites on their own.
