Is avocado toast a good source of protein?

Your typical avocado toast is missing an important nutrient because it does not have much protein. ½ of avocado only has one gram of protein, and the bread itself usually only has around 2-3 depending on what kind of bread you use. But you can make it high in protein like in this recipe!

Why is this recipe high in protein?

There are two special ingredients in this recipe that make it high in protein. The protein bread, this bread is amazing and you can find it at Aldi which means it is also affordable! Also by adding the greek yogurt in with the avocado you are creating a deliciously creamy spread that is higher in protein than just plain mashed avocado would be.

Is toast with avocado macro friendly?

As I always say, everything is macro-friendly if you want it to be, but just plain avocado toast is missing protein. Avocado is fat, and the bread is carbs, but where is the protein? This high-protein avocado toast is the perfect recipe!
