Breakfast Avocado Spinach and Egg Salad
- 1 large avocado
- 2 organic, cage-free eggs
- 4 cups spinach or favorite mixed greens
Roasted veggies: (feel free to use leftover veggies or roast veggies the night before to save time)
- ½ cup sliced onion
- ½ cup sliced red bell pepper
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- ½ teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt, divided
Dressing: (feel free to substitute your favorite dressing OR fresh lemon juice)
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- ½ lemon, juiced
- Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1 scoop Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens powder (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400F. Slice onion and bell pepper and toss with 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
- Slice avocado lengthwise and remove the pit. Scoop out just enough avocado flesh from each half to fit a cracked egg (about 2 tablespoons worth per side). Set scooped out avocado aside for salad.
- Place avocado halves flesh side up on a baking sheet along with the sliced peppers and onions. Sprinkle with salt and crack an egg into the hole of each avocado half.
- Roast in the oven for 12 minutes for a soft egg, 14 minutes for a medium egg, and 17-18 minutes for a hard egg. (Tip: If you like your peppers and onions more roasted, return pan to the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes.)
- While the avocado & veggies are roasting, prepare your salad. Add greens and scooped out avocado to a serving bowl. Whisk together dressing ingredients.
- Once eggs are done to your liking, carefully separate the egg and avocado from the avocado skin and place them onto the salad along with the roasted peppers and onion.
- Drizzle dressing over top of the salad and enjoy right away!

Avocados are high in fiber and contain more potassium than bananas! The fat in avocado helps your body absorb the vitamins and antioxidants from other plant foods.

Enzymes in fresh lemon juice accelerate the digestive process. Even though lemon juice is acidic, it actually has an alkalizing effect on the body.
Pure olive oil is high in nutrients including vitamins D, E, K, and A as well as omega-3 fatty acids. For the highest quality, look for organic extra virgin olive oil in dark glass bottles or tins that have an expiry date.
Onions are nutrient-dense, meaning they’re low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals such as vitamins C, B, and potassium. The flavanoids are concentrated in the outer layers, so try to remove as few layers as possible when peeling.
Red peppers provide beta-carotene and lutein, which are essential for eye health and to prevent night blindness.
Spinach supports healthy bones and eyes and slows age-related decline in brain function. It’s also loaded with vitamin K, which promotes healthy blood and circulation.
