Baked avocado with egg and bacon makes a fantastic dish for breakfast or brunch. An added bonus—it doesn’t take much to prepare while offering a great deal of nutritional value.
I love avocado and believe that you can add it to pretty much any dish. If you’re like most people, you’re probably eating more avocado than ever before. But how much of this fruit should you be eating each day?
To answer that question, let’s take a look at what’s in avocado from a nutritional standpoint. Yes, avocado has a fair amount of fat content; however, it’s monounsaturated fat, the healthiest kind. Depending on size, a single avocado supplies somewhere between 250 and 280 calories. That’s a lot of calories, especially if you are adding it to a dish. Of course, eggs have benefits too. They contain a lot of high-quality protein and the turkey bacon is low in calories.
My rule of thumb? Even though it is healthy and good for you, half of an avocado a day is just enough. Even with healthy foods, you have to consider portion sizes. So when making this simple and delicious baked avocado with egg and bacon, share it with a friend!
