The Avocado Toast Trend

By Jenna Pearlstein

Poor avocado toast has officially been pinned as “basic” by haterz everywhere. BUT its effortless combination of decadent crunch and invitingly smooth green texture attracts bruncher’s from every corner of suburbia for a reason: because it’s delicious!!!

 The best Avocado toast I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Perfect combination of fluffy eggs, freshly baked bread, and a sprinkling of baby tomatoes on the perimeter of the plate. 10/10
