Sure the dish may be nothing more than an open toast made with mashed avocado and salt, pepper, and citrus juice but when you add heaps of grain, drizzle on some curried olive oil with a dash of pink sea salt and then pile on loads of pickled carrot slaw on freshly baked bread, the humdrum fruit becomes a culinary wonder.
Other ingredients which elevate this basic meal include poached eggs, salmon, strawberries, garlic, tomatoes, capers, onions and feta. Nom. Nom.
It also does not hurt that avocado toast offers more than what other meals do; it feeds both the eye and the stomach and is the easiest way to get your daily dose of the beauty and health-boosting superfoods.
With our changing tastebuds, menus are also shifting toward lighter options but lighter does not mean cheaper, especially when you’re a tourist. In this case, you can do two things:
Take 10 minutes and prepare your own avocado toast at home before you leave for your day (not a bad option at all).
Sit down in any restaurant in any city and become a devotee.
Busting Myths About Avocados and Avocado Toast
Are Avocados Healthy?
Yes. Avocado is an extremely healthy fruit. It contains monosaturated fat, which can help reduce bad cholesterol levels and also lower the risk of heart disease.
Do Avocados Contain Fibre?
Yes. A two-tablespoon serving of avocado has about 2 grams of fibre and an entire fruit contains around 10 grams. When you have avocado it gives you an illusion of feeling full and it allows you to stay full longer.
Does it Help Weight Loss?
Yes and no. Let’s get the calculations straight; an avocado contains 322 calories and 29 grams of fat while two slices of avocado toasts equal 1778 calories, that’s a whopping addition on the scale. You can love the taste but just know that while avocado toast is not exactly good or bad for weight loss, the secret to any weight loss program is moderation. Have your avocado toasts moderately because this meal is not designed to magically and miraculously melt your fat away.
Is The Avocado Toast Trend Here To Stay?
It is still extremely popular but sweet potato toast is the current obsession among all the Instagram stars. Yes I know, look at what we’ve come to!

Planning your content calendar is tough enough during the year, but as the holiday approaches things can get more intense. For some #bossbabes, the months between October right up until Christmas represents over 50% of annual sales, for others, the percentage is much more. How do you plan content for the holidays?
Let’s get started with the understanding about the timing of your planning.When to start?I recommend planning your holiday content strategy 12 months before the holidays.Say What??!!I know that sounds really far fetched but think about it; there is really no better time to rationalise the kind of content that will have the most impact with your audience than directly after the season’s end. The period between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day is often best.Not only can you scan the feeds you love for inspiration (they will be filled with all kinds of relevant seasonal content) but the quiet days after Christmas allow for reflection, the essence of what content planning is all about.Now the process does not have to be intense, it’s the holidays after all, but you can scribble notes, story ideas and relevant sites in the early sections of your Social Media Planner. That way you’re sure to remember and begin your execution strategy by mid-year Yes, that soon!There’s nothing wrong with getting the holiday conversation going early. Start hinting at it by thinking about what you’ll be selling and how you can align your captions, graphic cards, stories, images and even your videos with your key sales objectives. Remember, as I keep preaching, connections matter first, then the sale.“Ok, but what should you do now?I’ve got you.
