My First Avocado Toast


This year I want to add more plant-based meals in my diet.  I've been watching hoards of YouTube videos of plant-based meals, including avocado toast.  Jenné a.k.a. SweetPotatoSoul, one of my favorite vegan Youtubers, isn't shy about her love for avocado toast, so I decided to give it a try as she recommends....sprinkled with fennel seeds.

Such a simple breakfast - mashed avocado with salt & pepper, spread on toasted oatnut bread, and sprinkled with fennel seeds.  The first avocado toast was so good, that I made another.  And drank it with a cup of rosy earl gray tea.  You guys know how I feel about my tea.  Yum.

Did I mention that I'm attempting to grow an avocado tree...indoors?  Ha Ha!  No, but seriously, my students from last year wanted to plant my avocado see in water so I let them.  And this is where I am with this tree at this point.  I need to place it in soil and see what happens.

So what simple breakfasts do you enjoy?  My morning prep time is super limited (like practically non-existant) and I need ideas. Do share...

And God's grace, I was able to press "submit" for my research paper, presentation, and post survey!  Finishing unfinished business has been a test of faith in the midst of extreme fatigue, oral surgery, and life happenings, but it's done!  As soon as it's official, completing this work means that I can prepare for my comprehensive exams this spring semester.  

So thankful for the support of friends and family and a jovial, yet competent oral surgeon who understood my sudden request for fried rice and caesar salad.  Thanks, Mom, for making two food runs to ensure my health, well-being, and sanity.  And special thank you to my friend who encouraged my heart, this morning, through the voice of Daryl Coley.  And now my vacation (of 1 day) can begin...(starting with shutting this computer off!)

I wish you all health, peace, love, and the blessings that only God provides during the coming year. 

Happy New Year!
