Goat Cheese Avocado Toast

Another great avocado toast addition is goat cheese. The soft cheese is tangy and slightly salty, adding a good amount of flavor to plain avocado. Sprinkling red pepper flakes and sea salt on top gives this morning meal just the right amount of zest. Not to mention, goat cheese has fewer calories than most cheeses. Get the recipe here.

Salmon and Avocado Toast

Low-fat cream cheese and smoked salmon are just the right combo for avocado toast. The smoky, salty salmon, milky soft cheese, strong red onions, and pickled capers add intense flavor to what could have been a boring piece of toast. Salmon has lots of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which are all important for your diet. Get the recipe here.
