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.
Which would you pick?!
