14 Jul 7 Reasons to Try Our Organic Avocado Toast!
Have you tried our avocado toast yet?! It’s our most recent menu item and it is gaining fast popularity. We too can’t help but develop a healthy obsession with it. So in honor of our Organic Avocado Toast, we are giving you 7 reasons why you’ve got to try it! Ingredient by ingredient. Here we go…
Avocado: In its basic form, fresh, organic avocado is smashed on lightly toasted bread. You can’t go wrong with this magical fruit. Buttery and smooth, avocados are chock-full of heart-healthy nutrients. They have more potassium than a banana and tons of fiber. Avocados are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, those essential nutrients that have shown to promote brain function, mood, and may have the potential to prevent heart disease – BUT- we of course love it, for its melt-in-your-mouth appeal.
Cold-Pressed Olive Oil: You’ve probably heard that drizzling a little bit of creamy olive oil on your food can do wonders for your health. And it’s true, the benefits are endless – olive oil, especially in its cold-pressed form, is a staple in Mediterranean fare – the most recommended diet by the American Heart Association. So don’t be afraid of the fat! Olive oil contains predominantly monounsaturated fats, the kind of fat that is essential for fueling your heart.
Fresh Lime Juice: Did you know that fresh lime brings out the color and phytochemicals in vegetables? Phytochemicals are powerful, bioactive substances in plants that contribute to the prevention of disease.
House-made Cilantro Cashew Cream Sauce: Completely raw and vegan, we blend our house-made almond milk with raw cashews, cilantro, fresh lime juice, Himalayan salt, and cracked black pepper. Sweet perfection.
Cherry Tomatoes: They’re sweet, juicy, a little tart, and full of an important antioxidant called lycopene. Lycopene has many health benefits like the prevention of disease and is important for eye health. There are various natural products that can aid the promotion of good eye health, some of which can be sourced online. Did you know the brighter in red a fruit or vegetable is the higher the antioxidant content? It’s true, they’re pretty and nutritious.
Red Pepper Flakes and Fresh Red Jalapeño: Need a little spice in your life? Red peppers have a special compound called capsaicin that is responsible for its signature hot flavor. But it also contributes to happy feelings when you eat it, giving you a rush of joy with each mouthful.
Hemp Hearts: As its name suggests, Hemp Hearts pack a happy punch – they are full of essential fatty acids your heart needs to keep ticking.
Himalayan Salt: Finally we top our toast with only the finest of salts – Himalayan, which has over 80 minerals in its tiny crystal! It’s THE perfect finishing touch.
