Day 1 (A) Breakfast: Avocado Scrambled Eggs

I am starting an alphabetical meal list of Healthy Foods from A - Z. 
Three meals a day! 
First Day is Letter A

Breakfast:   (AVOCADOS)

Avocado Scrambled Eggs! This pairing is a classic, the eggs are oh so creamy and fluffy when paired with the creaminess from the avocados. Cook up your scrambled eggs how you enjoy and add in one half of a diced Avocado. Sprinkle just a pinch of salt and pepper (if you like). Add this with slices of toasted whole grain bread and some cherry tomatoes, to round out your meal. 

Super healthy way to start your day! 

Avocados   (there is just sooooo much health information online about Avocados, that I didn't want to over load you with too much…so here's just some of the important facts to take in)

The power of the avocado to help prevent inflammation is outstanding in the world of health research. The term "anti-inflammatory" is a term that genuinely applies to this delicious food.  
Arthritis—both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis—are health problems that have received special health research attention in regards to the dietary intake of avocado. All of the anti-inflammatory nutrients are most likely to be involved in the avocado's ability to help prevent osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. 
         Avocado Nutrition  (per 1 cup, cubed) - showing % DV
