What you eat has a major impact on the way you feel AND the way you look. Healthy, radiant skin we all strive for, starts from within. The age-old adage, “you are what you eat” has stuck around for good reason.
Avocados are like the superhero of the beauty world — they’re rich in fatty acids, vitamin C, B, E, K and have more potassium than bananas, which makes them a star ingredient in our beauty routines at Thrive Causemetics. These vitamins and fatty acids are proven not only to help reduce wrinkles and help moisturize skin, but also help fight acne and eczema. We’re huge fans of just about everything avocado, but avocado toast currently tops the list. Check out our recipe for a fast, easy and delicious avocado toast that will have you making it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Bon appétit!
Recipe: Salted Avocado Toast
1 slice of your favorite bread (Whole wheat, rye, etc.)
⅓-½ Ripe Avocado
