Have to admit, avocado toast never gets old! I am beginning to wonder how I lived for so many years of my life without it. It’s actually shocking! Ha! Anyway, if I really think about it I have had other LONG food jags in my life and they are usually breakfast or lunch related. For example, before it was avocado toast it was a spinach and feta, egg-white omelet. Anyone else who can relate to food jags? Also, my current forever breakfast is oatmeal with peanut butter. Before that is was oatmeal with cottage cheese. (I know some of you might think the cottage cheese is weird, but you should really try it. Yum!) Never quite sure the exact time of any switch, but I do know eventually it occurs. Can’t imagine what is next!
