Sunny side Egg Avocado Toast #ebeggsfit

Things no food lover ever wants to hear: "You are on a soft food diet for 7 days". This my friends was what I heard Wednesday post dental surgery. Here I sit with 20 or so stitches in my mouth trying to find delicious recipes to get me through the week.
On my counter laid an Avocado which needed to be consumed. I then opened my refrigerator and saw a dozen of Eggland's Best eggs. It hit me - Avocado Egg toast! Except toast is not soft, so I got creative. This may be my go to breakfast moving forward. Except next time, with crunchy buttery toast vs. semi-toasted toast.
The easiest, quickest thing you can ever make:
Avocado Egg Toast
1 slice of whole grain bread
1 sunny side up egg
1/2 mashed Avocado
Salt & Pepper to taste

Lightly toast your bread. Top with mashed avocado, followed by the sunny side up egg and season with salt and pepper.

Speaking of egg's and being the first week of summer, did you know Eggland's Best eggs have four times more vitamin D than ordinary eggs? Sunlight is important for our bodies to produce Vitamin D, but sunscreen will also block that absorption while protecting our skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Below is an article from Eggland's Best website that talks about the importance of Vitamin D.
From Eggland's Best:
Choosing the right foods will help us get the vitamins we need each day. Did you know that one Eggland’s Best egg has four times as much Vitamin D as ordinary eggs? Each EB egg contains 120 IU (international units) of Vitamin D, compared to just 28 IU in an ordinary egg.* The National Institutes of Health recommend that children and adults, both male and female, receive 600 IU of Vitamin D daily.* *

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps our bodies absorb calcium. Calcium is important in forming and maintaining strong, healthy bones and may protect older adults from osteoporosis and other bone-related diseases, as well as certain types of cancers. Vitamin D is also known as “The Sunshine Vitamin”, because when the UV rays from the sun hit our skin, this triggers the production of Vitamin D in our bodies.

Our bodies don’t naturally produce Vitamin D, so getting it through all-natural food sources, such as salmon, milk and eggs will help us get the Vitamin D we need throughout the winter months.

Swapping out your ordinary eggs with EBs for your morning omelet with a glass of cold milk, and adding a tasty EB hard-cooked egg as an afternoon snack will put you on the right track to getting your daily dose of Vitamin D.
