snack attack! smashed avo + hemp seeds + corn cakes

snack attack! smashed avocado on corn cakes sprinkled with hemp seeds and a touch of salt. Yum! // www.heynutritionlady.com

I’ll always remember 2014 as the year that avocado toast took over the internet. Well, for other things too, but yeahhh avo toast! It makes a great snack too – here I’ve smashed half an avocado on some whole grain corn cakes, then sprinkled some hemp seeds over top, and a touch of flaky sea salt. The corn cakes are thinner than regular rice cakes by a little more than half. They’re a Swedish brand, but I’m sure there is something similar out there in the rest of the world, and if not, regular brown rice cakes or other whole grain crackers would do nicely as well. The corn cakes provide whole grains, and a nice crunch. The avocado brings healthy fats to the table, and a nice richness that tends to be satisfying. A bit of protein from the hemp seeds rounds out this nutritious snack. Enjoy!

  1. I had an allergic reaction to guacamole at Chipotles the sight of avocados actually make my skin crawl. It’s been a few months and I’m finally starting to get my avocado cravings back. This is my absolute favorite way to eat them, I usually opt for a brown rice- rice cakes a little fresh lemon juice and some sea salt. I’m going to purchase some avocados this week, I hope I can enjoy them again.

    • Oooh, isn’t it the worst when you go off a food you really love?! I had a similar experience with one of my favourite teas lately, and am hoping I can get back on the horse soon because I miss it. Good luck with the avocados – and great idea to add a bit of lemon juice!
