Some people today lack potassium and just ignore it. It causes high blood pressure and prone to heart attack, high blood pressure, and kidney failure. If you are healthy, the daily consumption of potassium that you need is 3500-4700 mg per day.

How do you make avocado toast with Egg?
First of all, we need good quality bread. Lots of bread in the supermarket is not healthy. Therefore, for the sake of nutritious food, I choose the whole grain bread, it’s a little bit more expensive than the normal bread but way healthier. Toast the whole grain bread
You only need 5 ingredients for this recipe. The preparation and cooking will be done in less than 10 minutes which is an advantage since we wanted something quick and easy.
Make sure that the avocado you used is ripe enough. One tip that you can do in picking avocado in the supermarket is gently squeezing it with the palm of your hands. You don’t want to get the overripe one, so choose wisely.

3 Ways to Make Avocado Toast with Egg
- An avocado toast with sunny side egg (fried egg)– I like it when a fried egg was cooked with butter. Perfectly cooked egg white and half-cooked egg yolk. Some do want a deep-fried egg, so, you will be the one to decide on how cook you want it to be. I recommended using the non-stick pan for a perfect outcome.
- An avocado toast with a scrambled egg. The same with a fried egg, cooking it with butter is good, making it tastier and creamier. As an alternative with butter, olive oil is also a good substitute. I’m sure most of us have tried scrambled eggs.
- An avocado toast with a poached egg. For this one, you need a pot, slotted spoon, and of course egg. First, boil the water in the pot. Second, make a hole in the egg using a pin or thumb stack. Note that your purpose is to allow air from the egg to release, therefore you need to be extra careful not to break it. Then, place the egg into the boiling water in just 10 seconds, remove it quickly, cooling down the egg for a minute. Finally, induce the water to a simmer. In simmering water crack the egg. You can normally pouch the egg anytime within 3 minutes.
