Avocado Egg Breakfast with Salsa Verde inspired in the traditional Huevos Rancheros my mother was used to prepare for us but with a healthier twist. I have chosen hass avocados as the vessel to cook the egg inside and also as a replacement for the fried tortillas in pork lard, one of the main ingredients for huevos rancheros.

Eating well to maintain a healthy weight is one of the most important things you can do to lower your risk for type 2 diabetes. And Hass Avocados aside from being delicious contain naturally good fats and are a great substitute for foods high in bad saturated fats.

In this recipe for avocado egg breakfast  I have chosen hass avocados as the vessel to cook the egg inside and also as a replacement for the fried tortillas in pork lard, one of the main ingredients for huevos rancheros.

This dish for avocado egg breakfast is ready in less than 15 minutes and doesn’t need any cooking oil. I am creating a steam bath with water for cooking the avocado egg in a skillet resulting in a luscious and tender sunny side up egg that will melt in your mouth and pairs very nicely with the creaminess of the hass avocado. The salsa verde is also fat free and it is made with fresh produce like tomatillos, garlic, cilantro and serranos, adding a very nice flavor that rounds the dish in a very nice way.

Did you know that in the United States the Hispanic population is twice as likely as the non-Hispanic individuals to develop type 2 diabetes. This is worrisome since we have diabetes in our family health history, so choosing a better diet and exercising can help lowering the risk. That is why we as a family have taken the decision to make our health a priority while still eating delicious foods like this avocado egg breakfast that embraces my latino flavors and Mexican cuisine favorites.

It has been found that diets rich in foods containing fiber potentially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. And avocados are an ingredient that has 8% of your daily recommended value (DV) fiber per 1 serving of avocado. Aside from the fact that fiber adds bulk to your diet and can help provide a feeling of fullness allowing you to eat less.
