Avocado and Roasted Tomato on Sourdough Toast
Avocado is probably one of the most nutritious, yet still very delicious fruit around. This fruit is rich in a lot of nutrients, including Vitamin K, folate, Vitamin C, potassium, Vitamin B5 & B6 and Vitamin E, all of which are perfect for moms. And all of these nutrient coming with only 160 calories. Avocado is also loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids called oleic acid, which reduced inflammation and has shown to have beneficial effects on genes linked to cancer. This fruit can also help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Avocados also have properties perfect for eye health, bone health and weight loss.
On the other hand, we all know the health benefits of tomatoes. But just to run through them quick, here you go:
- Perfect for heart health

Breakfast Super Smoothie
A breakfast smoothie is a great way of getting in all those healthy nutrients needed to start your day. With the right blend of wholesome ingredients, a breakfast smoothie can be a nutritional powerhouse. Filled with of important antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and protein, it is a great way to start your day.
It is important to stick with the healthy as just a few misguided add-ins, and you've got a high-calorie, sugar-laden dessert on your hands. Here are a few guidelines to making the perfect, healthy breakfast smoothie.
The liquid component of a smoothie is essential as it is this that helps the ingredients blend together with ease. Fruit juice is a popular choice, however using it can load your smoothie with sugar, so be weary. Some alternative you can use are water or coconut water, Greek yoghurt or coconut milk. All of these options are optimal choices for creating your healthy and creamy smoothie. This is especially true with Greek yoghurt because it contains a lot of protein. But overall, these liquid substitutes will add a hit of flavour and a creamy texture.

Note: You can also try seasonal fruit, such as mango or peaches, to get more fruit into your smoothie. This recipe for breakfast smoothie can easily be turned into a lunch-time treat.
