Spicy Avocado Egg Recipe

Avocado and soft boiled egg breakfast GWH recipe

If you’re looking for a healthy breakfast, you’ll want to bypass much of the traditional cereals, bagels, pancakes, waffles, muffins, and doughnuts, since they all have one thing in common, which are refined carbohydrates that will quickly break down to sugar, increase your insulin levels, and cause insulin resistance, which is the number one underlying factor of nearly every chronic disease and condition known to man, including weight gain.

Highly processed carbohydrates stimulate brain regions, promoting excess hunger and cravings, which means when you eat toast or cereal for breakfast you might be priming your body to overeat junk food for the rest of the day.

If you’re going to eat breakfast, you need to give your body the proper fuel, which means healthy fats, fiber, a moderate amount of protein, vitamins, and minerals – all of which you’ll find in the irresistible recipe that follows.

Try This Spicy Avocado Egg Recipe

Free-range, pastured organic eggs are one of the best foods you can eat. Combine them with another superfood, avocado, plus healthy spices and salsa. If you don’t like spicy foods, you can adjust the seasoning accordingly.

  • 1 organic Hass avocado, cut in half with seed removed
  • 2 organic pastured farm eggs
  • ½ tsp. organic Mexican Seasoning or equal parts organic cumin powder, garlic powder, and oregano
  • ¼ cup shredded organic coconut flakes
  • Organic salsa
  • Himalayan sea salt and cayenne or organic cracked black pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

Soft boil the eggs and crack them open into the avocado halves (where the seed was removed).

Season with a bit of salt and pepper. Sprinkle ¼ tsp. of Mexican Seasoning on each egg filled avocado.  

Top each half with salsa, sprinkle shredded coconut flakes, and enjoy!

What Makes This Recipe Good for You?

It’s comprised of whole foods that will give your body a boost of energy while offering multiple synergistic benefits.

Avocado

Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat that is easily burned for energy. They also provide close to 20 essential health-boosting nutrients, including potassium, vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid.

Avocado

Research has found that avocados can help optimize cholesterol levels within as little as one week, and contain compounds that appear to inhibit and destroy oral cancer cells, as well as, compounds that protect against liver damage.

Free-Range Organic Eggs

Eggs are a phenomenal source of protein, fat, and other nutrients, including choline and the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin.

It’s very important to choose free-range or “pastured” organic eggs, as they are far superior when it comes to nutrient content. Eggs from hens raised on pasture contain more vitamin A, omega-3 fats, vitamin E, and beta carotene than commercial eggs.

Soft-boiled-egg

Conventionally raised eggs are also far more likely to be contaminated with disease-causing bacteria such as salmonella. The key to finding truly free-range, pastured eggs is to buy your eggs locally. This is typically even preferable to organic eggs from the grocery store.

The healthiest way to eat eggs are poached, soft-boiled, or over easy with very runny yolks.

Cumin, Oregano, and Cayenne

These spices are rich in antioxidants and other phytochemicals that may fight diseases like cancer, reduce inflammation, and even slow down the aging process. For instance, oregano has anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal effects.

Cumin, meanwhile, has properties that may enhance your memory and reduce stress, while cayenne contains capsaicin, an anti-inflammatory compound linked to pain relief, weight loss, and the suppression of cancer cells.

Salsa

Salsa is a wonderful condiment to add to your meals, full of antioxidant-rich tomatoes, onions, peppers, and spices.

It’s low in calories but heavy in vitamins and flavor, so you can use it generously in your diet.
