Eggs and avocado sandwich
You just need a few slices of bread and you’re good to go. The eggs can be poached or fried and you can place them in-between the bread and add avocado slices on a different slice of bread. Bread provides with the energy you will need for the day while the eggs will give you the strength to carry out your day’s activities. Avocados have a plethora of benefits among them is that they have low cholesterol and they contain potassium which is good for your body.
