Air Fryer Baked Avocado Egg
I am trying to make better choices and lose some weight, and this has become a go-to breakfast for me. It is satisfying and keeps me full throughout the morning and helps give me the energy to keep going. By lunchtime rolls around I am ready for another meal, but I don’t feel ravenous like I would if I ate an empty carb breakfast like I used to. The Air Fryer cooks the egg and softens the avocado perfectly, and it takes minimal prep.
The reason I chose to use the Air Fryer is it is great for allowing me to make quick dishes, snacks, and meals without any hassle. Simply prep your meal, toss it in the Air Fryer, turn it on for the allotted time and go about your business. This stuffed avocado recipe is so versatile as well. Feel free to toss in some crumbled bacon or even turkey bacon, play around with spices, top with cheese, for a whole new flavor combination.
Health Benefits Of Avocado
First off, did you know that avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable? Avocado is considered the “fruit” of the tree! Avocados are bursting with nutrients that are great to incorporate into your daily diet. From a good guacamole to avocado toast, and now these tasty baked avocado eggs. You can find tons of recipes to use avocado, so you don’t get bored of them.
Because avocados have a really thick outer skin it helps protect them even better from pesticides. If you like to buy organic go right ahead, but if you want to save some money don’t worry about organic. Their thick skin really helps protect them better than say strawberries that have tons of little areas pesticides can latch on.
Avocados contain vitamin C, E, K, B6, B5, and even some vitamin A. You can also find they are full of potassium, magnesium, folate, and more. As you can see just at a glimpse of this, this little fruit is a star item to incorporate into your dishes as a topping or for the main course.
