3 Healthy Benefits of Avocado Toast

What is Avocado Toast?

Hi everyone! I recently decided to try avocado toast for the first time. I know, I ‘m a little late to the game but I am glad I finally gave it a try. Avocado toast is a more rich way to enjoy an easy go-to snack on the run. I personally used avocado toast as an upgrade for my breakfast game. While looking at many pinterest recipes and health benefits for eating this, these are the three I think stood out the most.



1. It’s a great snack for weight management

One of the reasons why it’s great for weight management is because it is considered a healthy fat. They help keep you full for longer periods of time and actually feel satisfied after eating. That means less snacking around just to do it. I know because I am terrible at snacking for no reason.

2. Helps with maintaining a healthy heart ❤

It is important to try to maintain a healthy heart to stay healthy. Avocado toast can help due to its healthy fats. It is filled with vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin C, potassium and folate which is great for lowering blood pressure. Having lower blood pressures can result in a stronger healthier life.

3. They are delicious!

Sometimes eating healthy can be boring. Having avo toast is simple yet so creative. For example, you can have it plain on sourdough toast with some butter. You can also slice it up and put it over sourdough toast with light cheese and add some ”Everything on it” seasoning. Whatever you think of, you can do with this.



This was simple to make, took less than 10 minutes and tasted great!


RECIPES! 🥑

I love to shop for recipes by pictures! I’m a visual person so seeing it will make me want to make it more.

For the avo toast I made:

1 avocado

1 slice of smoked salmon

Handful of cucumbers

Salt, Pepper, Paprika, Everything on it seasoning

2 wedges of lemon

Sourdough toast

I like to mash up my avocado to a nice consistency which is a little chunky and add it to bowl. There I do a pinch of salt, pepper, paprika. Squeeze in the two lemon wedges and stir it up a little more. Then I cut a slice of sourdough and toast the two pieces to where its slightly more crunchy. Once those are done I spread a nice even layer of avocado on the toast, top it with cucumber, then place the smoked salmon on top. After that for the final touch I add the ”everything on it” seasoning. I like to pair it with a coffee or some tea and then I get to enjoy breakfast.


I hope you all enjoy this recipe and some healthy benefits of avocado toast! Give it a try, you might be surprised. 😊

Three Big Things I Did In March

March Madness is over

March is officially over and we are now into April. It was a busy, stressful and healthy month for myself. I started eating avocado toast more regularly due to its health benefits. I’ve been going back to the gym during the week more and also staying busy with school. The three big things were: eating more home made meals, staying within 90% for my grades and working out more…again.


Avocado Toast: Homemade

I’ll usually have this as an after work snack before I start my studies for the day. I was able to make it in less than 10 minutes and go about homework that needed to be completed.


Staying Within 90% for Grades:

With my first semester of nursing school almost complete, I have been striving to stay within 90% or higher with my grades. I’m taking 4 classes and staying above the 90% percentile except for one. My math class grade is a little lower than I wanted, but I’m happy where it’s at because I am not the greatest at math. All I can do is keep doing my best and putting all I have into class.


Working Out More…Again:

I had a little break from working out, which always turns into a longer break and this is what exactly happened. I would work out sporadically or do the bare minimum knowing well that I needed to do more. So far for the month of March I used all my allotted days from Orange Theory Fitness and walked more than I have consistently. It also made me feel better as well.

Tea of the Day!

Day 4

Todays tea was, Pukka English Breakfast tea! I added a little bit of milk and had it in my Christmas mug. The saying today was :

At this time of year, breakfast should be special as this tea!

Monday’s are for Coffee

Coffee and work

Starting off the week with coffee is honestly my happy place. Working in EMS, we sometimes rely on that need of caffeine. Not saying it’s a good thing, but it helps us make the shift more enjoyable. I start early so I need that little boost. Getting to work by 7 am is rough sometimes and then we don’t know when our day exactly ends just a rough estimate. So coffee tends to help.

Usually I will make my Green Tea or Breakfast Tea in the morning and by the time I get to work I try to find a coffee shop to go grab a coffee. This week though, I am going to try something a little different, a little healthier. I have a Keurig at home, copious amounts of coffee, creamer and little extras. Why have I been spending all my money at coffee shops? We usually go to Starbucks because there are tons of them in my area. I just recently looked at the calories and sugars in certain drinks and….oh boy I was shocked…🤯 some of the coffees that I drank had as much sugar as a soda!

With that realization I am going to be trying my hand at making my “fancy coffees” at home this week, as a test run. Then hopefully I can keep this up and when I feel like coffee I’ll continue to make it at home.

Happy Monday everyone! Stay safe, stay strong and have a positively good day! 💚

Happy National Ice Cream Day!

Today we get to celebrate all this dairy goodness! Celebrate by having ice cream any way you would like. Banana splits, ice cream shakes or just a scoop in a cone. My favorite flavor would have to be mint chip from baskin robbins. Whats your favorite flavor?

First Week of June!

Summer is upon us and this first week of June I’ve been on the search for the perfect fruit cup. Fruit cups aren’t only healthy for you but they’re delicious and simple to make. It doesn’t take longer than 15 minutes, and you can add whatever you like! Here are three simple steps in making my fruit cup:

Summer Fruit Cup


What you’ll need!

  • Watermelon
  • Pineapple
  • Pear
  • Strawberries
  • Tajin
  • Chamoy Sauce
  • Cup/Bowl/Plate
  • Knife and a fork
  • Cutting board
  • Any other fruit you want

Step 1:

Pick whatever fruit you would like in your Summer Fruit Cup. Cut the watermelon and pineapple into strips and slice the rest of the fruit. Store the leftovers in the fridge to keep them cool and fresh.

Step 2:

Place the fruit strips along the inside of the cup. You can do this however you would like. Then take the diced up fruit, for my case the strawberries and pears and put them in the center.

Step 3:

The final step. Sprinkle Tajin throughout and add some Chamoy sauce to get that sweet yet savory flavor with a little kick. Grab a napkin and a fork. Find a comfy spot and relax!


My Summer Fruit Cup

This tasty treat is healthy and delicious. It’s almost like you could eat this every day for Summer! This is simple to make, can be made in less than 15 minutes and there’ll be leftovers for more! Have fun trying out something new. Enjoy this sweet treat and have a refreshing start to summer. Take a break from the Khaos 💚

Candy Apples Galore!

A Favorite Disney Treat!

Are those candy apples?!

What are those pictured above? Cute little ornaments maybe for a tree? Not quite. These tasty little treats are Disney’s caramel candy apples and they are to die for. These sweet treats shower Downtown Disney and Disneyland with their sugar crystals and sweet designs. Onlookers will water at the mouth as they inquire, “where did you get that?” Before visiting Disney let me tell you where you can find these adorable tasty apples and treats.

Oh my gosh they have even more?!

In fact, there are two places you can find these treats. First stop, Downtown Disney in Anaheim, California. Downtown Disney is not inside either of the parks: Disneyland or California Adventure. What this means is that it is open to the public, you don’t need a ticket to visit. In Downtown Disney there is a magical sweets shop called Marcelines Confectionery. You can watch in enjoyment as handcrafted caramel apples magically turn into an assortment of Disney characters and other delectable treats are made. There is something to try for anyone that has a sweet tooth.

This is just a sneak peak of Marcelines, there is much more to gaze in excitement in the store. These sweet treats are almost to pretty to eat you may think! Don’t be afraid to take a bite out of them, they are even more delicious than you can imagine.

Don’t fear, already in the park and see someone walking around with a giant candy apple or a brick of fudge? Second stop, Disneyland itself in Anaheim California. This second stop is not free like Marcelines Confectionery in Downtown Disney. Visiting the Candy Palace and Candy Kitchen requires an entry ticket to Disneyland theme park. That’s the only catch. In hindsight you would be able to walk around the park munching on a sweet treat and enjoy a day at Disney though. Sounds like a win to me.

Pixar Fest

The caramel apple and candy themes are constantly changing! They might be snowmen for winter, or maybe a poison apple for Halloween or perhaps Dory and Marlin from Finding Nemo. You won’t know which one will be there until you visit yourself. So while you’re wondering where to get your craving of sweets don’t forget to stop at Marcelines Confectionery in Downtown Disney or the Candy Palace and Candy Kitchen inside Disneyland. You and your sweet tooth will not be disappointed! Have fun trying out all the different types of apples and sweet treats!
