This egg white and avocado breakfast sandwich!

The other morning my mom called me whilst standing in line at a Panera, about to purchase an egg and avocado sandwich for breakfast. And suddenly, as I listened to her munching away on her delicious, savory sandwich, I felt an extreme sense of sandwich-envy.

So, I decided to make my own version of a breakfast sandwich. A sandwich you can make at home for half the price and in half the time you would spend standing in line.

Are you an avocado fanatic? Because I know I sure am. Add avocado to anything, from a salad to a sandwich, and I’ll inhale the entire thing in less than 15 seconds.

And not only is avocado yummy, but it’s phenomenally healthy too! High in healthy fats that will keep you feeling fuller longer (omega-3 fatty acids!) as well as a plethora of vitamins and minerals, avocados are basically a super-food.

Plus, combine avocado, fresh spinach and bell pepper, and an egg hot off the griddle and you’ve got yourself the perfect breakfast sandwich to wake up to!

Well, really… what better to get you out of bed on a weekday morning than a breakfast as delicious as this? 😉
