9 Easy and Quick Ways to Top Avocado Toast

9 Easy and Quick Ways to Top Avocado Toast

Avocados are creamy, flavorful, and one of the hottest fruits of the summer. We can’t get enough of it in our guacamole dips, and the green stuff tastes pretty good in salads, smoothies, brownies, and sandwiches, too. Good taste is not the only thing to love about avocados; they are also full of health benefits. Avocados are nutritious and include 20 different vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C and Vitamin E. They are also very high in potassium, which supports good blood pressure; fiber, which supports weight loss; and antioxidants, which help improve eye health.

Avocados should be stored at room temperature until they ripen which can take up to 4 to 5 days. When the outside skin is black or dark purple, they are ripe and ready to eat or refrigerate. To speed up the ripening process, place your avocado in a paper bag with an apple, banana, or kiwifruit. To speed up the ripening process even more (say, like ten minutes), slice your avocado, sprinkle with lemon juice, and bake it in the oven on 300° for 10 minutes. If your avocado is ripe, but you’re not quite ready to eat it, store it in the refrigerator to preserve it. If you’ve already cut into your avocado, sprinkle it with lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, or cover it in plastic wrap to keep it from turning brown.

While guacamole is the most popular way to eat avocados, it isn’t the only way. Avocados taste great on toast. Just slice or smash and place on top of a piece of bread. It’s so simple to make, but quite an upgrade from your plain butter and jam toasts. A plain avocado toast tastes great and makes for a nice breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack, but adding a variety of toppings gives an even greater taste and doesn’t cost that much more money or time. Below are nine easy and quick ways to top your avocado toast and eat any time of the day – three for breakfast, three for lunch, and three for dinner.

                    8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                    We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                    On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                    Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                    1. Smart Door Locks

                    A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                    2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                    Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                    3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                    If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                    4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                    5. Nest Thermostat

                    This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.
