Avocado Oats w/ Poached Egg

It’s no secret that I love oatmeal.. both sweet and savoury! In fact, I find the savoury equally as delicious, but it’s so underhyped! When I was left with a pretty much empty fridge the other day, I happened to render up this unique combo. After trying it a couple times, I announced it as my signature dish, haha. It’s so simple to make that you hardly need a recipe, but I thought I’d share with you guys the idea for whenever you’re in need of a quick, filling meal. Many of you from Blogilates and Instagram also asked me for one, so here it is for those of you. c: Don’t turn away from the green, I swear it’s delicious! 

Recipe

 Star of the show: avocados. It’s funny because I used to hate avocados.. I remember picking them out of all my California rolls. Geez, what was young, naive Rachel thinking. These guys are absolutely wonderful! 
 
That beautiful moment when you slice open a perfectly green, ripe avocado..

 

This recipe is great if you have a leftover opened fruit because as we all know, avocados oxidize and don’t keep well for long. 
 
Here’s the final product!
 
and then we break the lovely yolk.. (; #yolkporn – any team runny yolks out there?
Creaminess from the avocados, oozy goodness of the yolk, and the fresh crunch of veggies… absolutely delectable.
 
By the way, it’s Mama Rae approved. (;

3 Nutritional Perks

1) Avocados are loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats that support heart health by lowering your bad cholesterol.

2) Oatmeal is a whole grain, which stabilizes your blood sugar level. (For more info, head over to Oatmeal 101.)

3) Eggs are great sources of protein (and for our vegetarian friends out there too!), and will keep you satisfied for longer. (Read more at Eggs 101.)


Hope you are all doing well! I’ve been sick with a cold for the past couple of days and it’s just awful.. constantly coughing and sniffling, ugh.. /: Anyways, thanks for reading!

<3,

Rae
