10 Genius Ways To Spruce Up Your Avocado Toast

Avocado toast has become quite the trendy breakfast food recently, and for good reason. Avocado is filled with nutrients that can help lower your cholesterol and fight off cancer, and the combination of healthy fats and carbohydrates in the dish makes the perfect fuel-filled meal that will keep you satiated and energized throughout the day.

Although the pairing tastes great on its own, smearing avocado on a piece of bread can get boring day after day. Luckily, there are a plethora of great combinations you can make to take your avocado toast to the next level. Whether you’re an egg fan, a veggie lover, or a spice fanatic, there’s a piece of toast for  you.

If you’re looking to make your breakfast or lunch a little bit fancier, consider these 10 genius ways to spruce up your avocado toast.
