8. Smashed white bean and avocado toast
White beans contain a healthy combination of carbs, fat, and protein. Paired with avocado and tomato, this is a well-balanced filling meal. If you’re looking to add a touch more flavor (and only one more ingredient), add ¼ cup packed torn basil leaves to the blender when making the smashed white beans.
