Wow. I don’t remember when the last time was that I spent THIS MUCH TIME editing a video. Hmm, actually, I think it was when we filmed the Great Gatsby dance. Do you remember that? If not, click here to see the video. We went all over LA to film those scenes! I was dressed as a flapper and randomly people would stop and watch me dance and then clap and leave. It was like being a street performer. Haha.
Anyway, I have spent the last 3 days editing this “6 Unique & Exciting Ways to Eat Avocado” video. I really hope you like the style of this new Cheap Clean Eats episode. I decided to do voiceover and also make it more playful.
Here are the recipes featured!!
1. Avocado Toast
2 slices Ezekiel bread, toasted
½ tomato or 2 slices of roma tomato
salt and pepper to taste
Macros: 328 cals, 10g protein, 16g fat, 40g carbs
2. Baked Avo Egg (It’s an egg inside an avocado)
1 ripe avocado
2 fresh eggs
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon chopped chives
1) Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
2) Slice your avocado in half and remove the seed. Then take out about 2 TBS of flesh from the center, just enough for an egg to fit inside.
3) Crack an egg inside. Just make sure that the egg white covers the yolk! This is important so that it does not get dry when baking.
4) Now bake in the oven for about 10-15 min or until the egg is cooked. If you cook it too long, the whites will get chewy and the yolk will taste as if you hardboiled it. So watch carefully! Try to get it so that the yolk is a little runny. That’s how I like it anyway.
5) Season with chives, salt and pepper, and hot sauce if you’d like!
