Yes, I have an avocado toast obsession. Avocados are a staple in my home, I always buy a bunch of unripe avocados then leave some in my fridge and some on my counter so they ripen at different times throughout the week. Plus they are so darn good for you, loaded with healthy fats, vitamins and nutrients and a great way to get more plant-based meals into your day.

Avocado toast with lemon and kale is an easy, healthy lunch that takes about 5 minutes to make!

This sandwich was inspired by my daughter, Karina who always orders this for lunch at Le Pain Quotidien in Manhattan when she’s at work. It’s so simple to make yourself, I made this for myself and my husband Tommy last week, and now he’s been asking me to make it again and again. Hope you enjoy!
