Chilli Avocado Toast

A fab post-workout snack. Full of protein and high in healthy fats. I always crave something delicious like this after a work-out.

It’s quick and easy to make and as a breakfast it makes a nice change from everyday toast or cereal.

More post-work out food coming soon.

Serves 2


2 Hunks of sourdough bread

2 teaspoons butter

2 eggs

1 avocado

Sprinkle of dried chilli flakes

2 wedges of lemon

dash of vinegar

Crunchy salt and cracked black pepper to season


Cut yourself off two hunks of bread. I like sourdough but you can use what you like. I’m wincing at the thought of pale, limp, thinly sliced bread as this is so much better with a good sourdough fresh from the bakery.

Heat a small pan of water and bring to the boil.

Toast your bread and while its toasting chop up your avocado or slice it whatever you prefer.

Just before it pops up crack your eggs into the simmering water and poach them. I add a dash of vinegar and swirl the water which I find keeps the eggs in one piece. Keep an eye as this bit happens really quickly.

Once your toast is done butter it and top with the avocado, remove your eggs with a slotted spoon and place on the avocado. Sprinkle over your chilli flakes, season with crunchy salt and cracked black pepper and serve with a lemon wedge which is delicious squeezed all over.

TIP: Avocados are delicious cut in half and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, vinegar and salt and cracked black pepper. Another perfect post-work out snack.
