Spicy Avocado Toast Recipe
– 1 large whole Avocado – 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper – 1/2 tsp salt – Spritz of lemon juice – Two slices of toasted bread (I prefer Powerseed by Dave’s Killer Bread) Mash the avocado to your little heart's content, spread that baby over each warm slice of toast, and garnish with spices. UGH. So good & SO simple.
Cayenne, the superstar
Are you ready to hear all about the benefits cayenne has in store for you?? Cayenne is known as a detoxifier, it both neutralizes acidity and increases circulation! Improved circulation also means improved heart health. But that's not even close to all this firecracker spice can do! The active ingredient in Cayenne pepper, Capsaicin, is thought to both increase your metabolism and reduce your hunger by slowing the production of Ghrelin (the hormone that makes you hungry) making it a great addition to your diet if you are trying to shed a few pounds. Oh! And I can’t forget to mention that Cayenne is rich in Vitamin A & E which both fight off free radicals that lead to early signs of aging! Say hello to healthier hair, skin, and nails!
