Grilled Mushroom Tomato Avocado Toast

I love avocado toast. It’s a great way to get all of your nutrients into a simple slice of toast. There are many ways to create avocado toast. This is one of my favorite ways. The key ingredients are:

Avocado: Avocados contain potassium, dietary fiber, and monounsaturated fatty acids. Avocados are shown to lowerLDL, or “bad,” cholesterol and increase HDL, or “good,” cholesterol, 

Cherry tomatoes: Cherry tomatoes are just as nutritious as beef tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes contain 1.3 grams of protein, 1.8 grams off fiber and 20 milligrams of vitamin C.

Mushrooms: Mushrooms are low in calories, and are great sources of fiber and protein. They also contain B vitamins, selenium, potassium, copper, and vitamin D.
