The lively, colorful colors of summer are starting to become more pronounced in our daily lives, including our breakfast and dinner tables. Among the beloved summer dishes I’ve been eager to recreate at home is the classic Avocado toast.

Avocado, with its creamy texture and delightful flavor, is one of my favorite fruits. While it’s undeniably delicious on its own, this versatile fruit serves not only as a dessert but also as a delightful sandwich filling. Packed with healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, avocados offer a nutritional boost to any meal To make my Avocado Toast a lot more filling, I opted to incorporate U.S. Navy Beans into my recipe.

U.S. Navy Beans, also known as U.S. White Beans, are a superfood that are packed with essential nutrients and health benefits. U.S. Navy Beans are high fiber content, making them excellent for digestive health. Additionally, they serve as a great source of protein while being low in fat. Notably, they contribute to blood sugar regulation and may aid in lowering cholesterol levels.
