Avocado Toast and Kale Smoothie

June 17, 2015 , Passmethedimsum

Wednesday. The weekend is so close I can almost touch it. Almost. Sigh.

What does one do when feeling lazy, in need of energy, and hungry, and the mercury reads 40 degrees? One makes a quick summertime power lunch! And what’s quicker than some avocado toast and a smoothie?

Here’s how it’s done

Avocado Toast:


  1. Warm up two slices of multigrain or protein bread.
  2. Smush half an avocado on each slice and mix in some raw garlic. (IF you’re worried about bad breath, chewing on a raw sage leaf afterwards fixes that problem)
  3. Crumble some Feta on top.
  4. Crack some fresh black pepper.
  5. Drizzle some balsamic vinegar. Some people prefer lemon juice, I prefer balsamic. Sometimes I skip this step altogether.
  6. Sprinkle some chili flakes if desired. I like all my savory food a little spicy!

Kale smoothie:


You’ll need:

  • 3 big kale leaves
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 3 slices of frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 a green apple
  • 5-6 goji berries
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon flaxmeal
  • sprinkle of bee pollen
  • 1/2 a teaspoon basil seeds
  • 4-5 almonds
  • 3 sukkary dates
  • 3/4 cup coconut water

Blend all the ingredients together and voila.

Time to get back to my day job now….
