Big bad butter
It's not new news that butter is not a friend to your arteries or your thighs- but it's sooo good. It is hard to find substitutes for butter in recipes, but what about butter on toasts, bagels, and in grilled cheese? A healthy fat substitute for butter, cream cheese, etc. is avocados. Avocados are rich in healthy unsaturated fats and give an extra kick of flavor to toast and bagels. One of my favorite breakfasts/lunches is to toast half of a bagel, cut an avocado in half, and use a fork to "mush" up the avocado half onto my bagel. Add pepper and a side of your favorite fruit and you have the perfect balanced mix of carbs, protein, and HEALTHY fat! Enjoy :)
