Fry 1-2 eggs sunny-side up or over easy and place them on top of the avocado toast. The runny egg yolk creates a creamy sauce for the bowl. Eggs offer a perfect dose of protein to keep you full. Add heat to your bowl with chili pepper slices, oil, or your favorite hot sauce. Chili provides spice and capsicum for metabolism-boosting effects.
Squeeze fresh lime or lemon juice over the top of your bowl. Citrus juice provides the brightness that balances the flavors and prevents the avocado from oxidizing. Finish your bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper. High-quality olive oil and seasonings enhance all the flavors.
