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. 😊

New Adventures and New Learning Experiences


February was a month of learning and expanding my brain. Part of this month I went on my Navy annual training at Camp Pendletons Hospital. I’m rated as a general Corpsman (medic) which means I don’t have a specialty and I can float around where they need me. This time they needed me in the anesthesia department. Needless to say, I was a little nervous because I had no idea what they would want me to do. Not to mention I have basically zero experience in that department. Fast forward to day one of training and besides being nervous, I am ecstatic. I’ve never set foot in an operating room before! It was super clean, shiny, bright and had a level of organized collective chaos. I dove headfirst and learned everything I could as fast as I could since it was a little understaffed. I was allowed to prep patients in pre op for surgery, learned the restocking methods and was even able to watch a handful of the surgeries that were performed. The days flew by and when I wasn’t working at the hospital, I was out exploring sunny San Diego.


Exploring the tide pools and enjoying the ocean.

Tide pools at Shell Beach in La Jolla.


San Diego was a breathe of fresh air. I was able to explore and adventure around with one of my good friends that actually was training with me. She had some friends that knew cool food places to eat at and beaches to visit. I even managed to spend a few days hanging out with my brother. We tried to eat somewhere different everyday and to keep it local. Down in Encinitas we came across a delicious bakery and an amazing gelato shop.


This was delicious and the staff was so friendly! She gave us a loaf of bread for free! Add them to your list!

Go visit at night! Has amazing flavors of gelato. Fun, cozy atmosphere and only a few blocks from an ocean view.



Instead we found ourselves at dessert and snack shops than actual lunch or dinner places. It kind of kept the surprises of food on a working ”vacation.” I mean we had as much fresh seafood we possibly could have had, we had old school Italian food, amazing pizza and beer too. I also had to try ”the best coffee” that the San Diego area boasted. The coffee shops are called Better Buzz Coffee and they are scattered around SoCal. Since I’m a caffeine fiend, I of course had to stop in. I wanted to try their Horchata Iced Latte, but sadly they were sold out. I opted for their Mint Infused Iced Coffee instead and let me tell you…It was delicious! Not overly sweet, just the right amount of mint and the coffee was strong. It was great. If you ever find yourself in SoCal, give them a try. Here’s a glimpse at their MENU.


Such a fun atmosphere. Kick back and enjoy a nice coffee.


Now I think my favorite dessert place we found which ended up being on our second to last day was called Parlor Doughnuts. These are fancy home made big croissant/doughnut delicacies. I tried the Caramel Turtle and Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shortcake. They were decadent, and not overly sweet. I wish I had more time to bring them back home with me from the trip.



This annual training with the Navy actually turned out to extremely insightful to my job and fun. I managed to learn a lot of new information that made me curious enough to do my own research. I was able to spend time with new friends and went exploring out and about in a newish city! The best part of all though I think was being able to try all the new delicious foods and spend time at the beach to really enjoy it. I hope you enjoy reading about this as much as I enjoyed writing about it. 💚 Kat

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?

Fourth of July Twenty-Twenty

Happy 244th Birthday America. May our Freedom forever ring.

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July everyone. Remember fireworks in some states and counties are illegal, also remember we only have one body. So, be careful if you do decide to use them. Being in EMS this is where we see some very painful injuries. COVID-19 is still raging throughout so wear a mask and wash your hands. Enjoy some food and down time. Happy 4th of July America! 🎇

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!
