For an alternative taste to toast - Avocado toasty
Avocado is something of a 'superfood', as it's rich in vitamin E, high in monounsaturated fats and a good source of potassium - as well as vitamin B6, which aids the process of serotonin synethesis (a process that promotes good mood). Spread half a 'medium ripe' avocado on a slice of wholemeal toast to get a tasty, wholesome, low-GI snack containing a healthy dose of fibre. And if you like a spicy touch, sprinkle it with a dash of Tabasco sauce!
