1 medium Avocado
1 piece of cooked bacon, crumbled
1 TB of low-fat cheese
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 425.
Begin by cutting the avocado in half and removing the pit.
With a spoon, scoop out some of the avocado so it’s a tad bigger than your egg and yolk. Place in a muffin pan to keep the avocado stable while cooking.
Crack your egg and add it to the inside of your avocado. Sprinkle a little cheese on top with a pinch of salt. Top with cooked bacon.
Cook for 14-16 minutes. Serve warm.

Soo here’s the deal. Both foods are calorically equal. Is either bad for you?! Nope… but all calories aren’t created equal.
When it comes to weight loss you CANNOT lose weight without a caloric deficit. So whether you fill your diet with cookies or avocado, if you’re consuming more calories than you are burning you unfortunately won’t lose weight.
So why pick the avocado?🥑
Besides being much more nutritious than cookies, you will be ten times more satisfied and be taking in way more nutrients and health benefits. So while yes, calories are equal, think about what would be more satisfying 3 hours later.
Nutrition info based on 3oz of avocado vs 2 chips ahoy soft cookies.
How cute are these?! Healthier pizza for the win!
Makes 1 serving
1 large green bell pepper
1/4 cup pizza or spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup grated cheese
a pinch of red pepper flakes
a pinch of basil or parsley
as many toppings as you can fit!
Pre-heat your oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Slice off each of the four sides of your pepper and lay flat on a baking sheet.
Top with sauce, then cheese, followed by any and every veggie in your crisper! I added broccoli and tomatoes to mine.
Bake for 10 minutes, flipping your oven to broil towards the end to make the cheese nice and bubbly.
Add a pinch of red pepper flakes and basil/parsley if desired and dig in!
