The Ultimate in Delicious and Nutritious

I'm always looking for new ways to make my meals nutritious and delicious and today I hit the mother lode!

Bacon & Avocado on Whole Wheat
serves 2

2 100% whole wheat English muffins (I used Trader Joe's whole wheat British muffins)
1 ripe Haas avocado
4 slices cooked until crisp turkey bacon (The Trader Joe's uncured is so good, I actually prefer it to the traditional pork bacon, shocking I know but true.)

Split and toast the muffins. Mash the avocado and spread it on the toasted muffin halves. Top each muffin half with a slice of bacon (cut in half to make it fit.) Devour!

Each serving provides 334 calories, 18 grams of fat (13 of those grams are healthy fat from the avocado), 20 grams of protein, 34 grams of good carbs and 11 grams of fiber. Add a handful of juicy green grapes on the side and you have a complete totally tasty and satisfying meal.
