Avocado and Cottage Cheese Toast
I wanted to make something higher in protein for breakfast and with some fat to keep me satiated longer, so I gave this a whirl, and to my surprise, it was even better than I imagined.
One of my favorite sandwiches is grilled cheese and tomato and this actually reminded me of that—it was so satisfying. The toast and seeds give you that crunch you crave. The cottage cheese and avocado give you a nice creamy texture while the chili powder gives you a little heat. And, then the tomatoes, well they just brighten it all up! It's really quite perfect...minus the fact that it is a little messy. But, I didn't mind.

NOTES FROM COACH MEL:
This recipe is just as good without the seeds and chili powder. So, if they are not your thing, skip them, you won't be disappointed. Want to reduce the fat portion to half, use low-fat cottage cheese instead of the full fat.
This recipe is vegetarian, can be made gluten free with GF bread, a good source of protein, and quick and easy to make.
