This easy, all in one casserole dish is full of healthy fats and protein for the most important meal of the day. The addition of diced vegetables at the bottom of the dish keeps the avocado halves in place for nice, even baking and makes a nice condiment too. Serve as is, or with a slice of toasted Candida Diet Coconut Bread. You can enjoy your avocado baked eggs for breakfast, or lunch or dinner too!
This is a breakfast that should keep you satisfied and full throughout the morning. Low in carbohydrates but high in protein and fat, it will help to keep your blood sugar stable and prevent any mid-morning hunger pangs.
Thanks to the avocado and oil, it contains lots of healthy fats to keep you full. It also contains some antifungal foods (the onions and olive oil) as well as lots of other anti-inflammatory ingredients to keep your gut healthy. Enjoy!
