Countless studies highlight the importance of eating breakfast. According to the American Dietetic Association, children who eat breakfast perform better in the classroom and on the playground, with better concentration, problem-solving skills, and eye-hand coordination. Enjoying a nutritious start to the day not only improves brain function but prompts less snacking throughout the day – healthy for the brain and the body!
Avocado’s nutritional properties help kids and teenagers tackle their school day, unlike sugary cereals that leave kids hungry by mid-morning, the unsaturated fats and fiber in avocados leave you feeling full for longer and they support healthy brain function by promoting blood flow.
Our family LOVES avocados. Our favorite way to eat them in the morning is to spread avocado on toast or a bagel for a yummy start to the day. Avocados from Mexico are available year-round so there are always some available to cook with. This week I cooked up a “Green Eggs and Ham” Breakfast sandwich. I toasted some English muffins and fried an egg and a piece of Canadian Bacon in a pan. I put the bacon, egg, a slice of cheese all on top of a few slices of avocado on my English muffin. It was delicious, I can’t believe I didn’t think to take a picture to share with everyone, but the next time I make it I will update this post with one!
In addition to my breakfast sandwich, Avocados from Mexico has recipe ideas on their website for breakfast or any other meal in the day. Here is one of my favorites:
