Ingredients

  • 1 slice whole grain bread
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 avocado ripe
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1/4 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • 1/4 cup arugula
  • 1 tbsp balsamic drizzle

Instructions

  • Toast bread. I like bread extra toasty for this recipe for a texture contrast to the creamy avocado and egg!
  • Cook egg to your preference. I like over-easy eggs with this recipe. But, over hard, sunny-side up or scrambled also work. You could even use a chopped hard boiled egg!
  • Mash avocado over toast. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Top avocado with egg, tomatoes and arugula. Sprinkle with balsamic drizzle.

  1. So just wondering, I read that Avocados are high in oxalate for kidney stones, and of course grains. Is this recipe ok because its only a 1/4 avocado and 1 slice of bread? How many times a week could you eat this? Everything is so confusing.
    Also what is your opinion on wild blend rice mix like Lundberg brand, ok or not to eat for oxalate diets?

      Hi Heidi! Firstly, I think it is SO important to know that there is no single kidney stone diet. The foods and food patterns that are best for you must be individualized to your 24 hour urine test. Only people who have high urine oxalate need to limit how much oxalate they eat. And, even then, depending on how high urine oxalate is, I usually recommend limiting to 100 (and even up to 200mg) per day. So, you can see that the total oxalate amount in this recipe easily fits within that limit. There are essentially NO foods totally “off limits” – it is all about learning how to build healthy meal patterns.

      Hi Tammy! Most of it is actually from the bread (58mg per my food analysis software) + 25mg from the egg and very small amounts from the other ingredients!

      Hi Barbara. Potassium needs are VERY different for people with kidney disease. If potassium levels are normal, a HIGH potassium diet can actually be good for your kidneys! Here is an article where I dive into this a little more.
