Rye Toast with Avocado and Radish Smash
A healthy home-made option on the famous and topical Avocado Smash that caused so much controversy in the media regarding its cost at cafes. You can make this yourself. Avocados are an excellent source of monounsaturated fat and vitamin E. They are high in calories so I would recommend only having 2-3 a week in total. Radish has a high vitamin C content and fibre as well as having anti-oxidant properties. Fibre lowers your risk of colon cancer, heart disease, diabetes and diverticulitis.
Time taken :
¼ avocado, diced
½ tsp lemon juice
2 x 40gm slices of rye bread
