Fresh California Avocado and sliced tomatoes are the perfect accompaniments on this open-faced egg sandwich layered on whole grain toast. The avocado and tomato together act as a nutrient booster by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene as well as lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit. This powerhouse is an excellent source of protein, vitamins A, C, D and k, along with iron and dietary fiber. You can make this protein-rich and vitamin-packed Eggie-Cado sandwich in less than 3 minutes. Ready-set- go-eat.
