A grain-free breakfast is a great way to start your day. Replacing your toast with an avocado gives your body a healthy source of fat to help it absorb fat soluble vitamins A,D,E and K from the foods we eat. You will love the way you feel after eating this winning combination.
1/2 a small ripe organic avocado
2 slices organic bacon
1 poached pastured egg
1 cap full of Apple Cider vinegar with the mother
fresh herb: I recommend either a torn basil leaf or torn cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
1-Fill a small sauce pan with water and add the cap full of apple cider vinegar
2- Place saucepan over medium-low heat until you see little bubbles coming to the top of the surface.( you don’t want a rolling boil.)
3- While you are waiting for the water to be ready , put the bacon on a cookie sheet and place it in a preheated oven at 425 degrees. (Should take about 15 minutes. Turn bacon at the half way point ( 7 1/2 minutes) to ensure a nice crisp slice of bacon that is easy to crumble when it’s done.)
4) Slice the avocado down the middle from top to bottom in a circular motion. Then twist the avocado to separate. Use the half that doesn’t have the pit still attached. Rap the remaining half leaving the pit attached ( this will keep it from getting black) and store at room temperature until you use it.
5) Crack the egg shell and drop the whole egg slowly into the simmering water. Cook for about 3-5 minutes depending on your stove.
6- Slice a small piece off the bottom of the avocado so it sits evenly on a plate.
7- With a slotted spoon remove the egg from the water, and place it in the center of the avocado.
8- Top with crumbled bacon and torn herbs. Salt and pepper to taste.
*** For those of us living with Celiac Disease it is very important to get as many good sources of fats in our diet since our bodies have trouble absorbing fat soluble vitamins A,D,E and K. Incorporating avocado’s, Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Organic Raw Coconut oil into our diets helps ensure that our bodies have the tools to absorb these very important vitamins.
