This recipe makes for a delicious breakfast or snack which will keep you feeling satisfied for some time.

Why?

Read about what ‘glycemic load\index’ means first.

Both eggs (boiled) and avocados are high in fat and have a low glycemic load, together with a relatively low carbohydrate content. Check out their nutritional value here (avocado) and here (boiled egg).

On the other hand, wholemeal/multigrain bread provides carbs and fibres while still maintaining a low glycemic load.

This means that the sugars in your blood should remain stable and thus not cause a spike followed by a slump in energy.

You will need (these amounts make 2 stuffed sandwiches made with regular whole-wheat bread slices, but you can use for up to 4 sandwiches)

– 1 ripe avocado (how to prepare)

– 2 boiled eggs

– 1 tablespoon mayo (optional)

After much frustration I found that the best way to ‘peel’ a boiled egg is to cut it in half length-ways with a knife and scoop the insides out. Some other tips here.

Mash everything together and spread on toasted bread.
