Simple Avocado Toast and Fun Food Links

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best, as is the case with this avocado toast, which I've been having for breakfast in various forms for the past few days.

Start with a slice of toasted whole grain bread spread with creamy mashed avocado, drizzled with lime juice and a sprinkle of salt. From there, the topping ideas are endless: juicy sliced tomato, leftover beans or veggie stir-fry, fresh greens and cracked black pepper, or, as above, clover and radish sprouts with pepitas.

It's filling and packs a big nutritional punch, full of vitamins, fiber and healthy fats. More importantly, this energy-filled vegan breakfast will keep you going until your next meal, and takes just minutes to make.

A lot of people have been asking me "what exactly is it that you eat?" So, aside from the vegan breakfast idea above, I thought I'd provide a few links to places where I find tons of amazing vegan recipes and recipe inspiration. Sometimes a vegan meal is as simple as avocado toast; other times it's as complicated as, say, this incredible looking Vegan Ma Po Tofu from Serious Eats.
