Healthy Lunch

Avocado toast has been on the trendy healthy list for the last year or so and I must say that it is delicious. I usually put about a half of an avocado onto two pieces of toasted multigrain bread. Yummy with some freshly ground pepper and sea salt. 

BUT, I recently tried it without the s & p and instead topping it with fresh raspberries cut in half. Oh, my, so yummy. Good for breakfast or lunch. I do love raspberries, but would often get discouraged when they would get moldy the next day after purchase. I don't know where I saw this trick, but it works. When you get your berries home, put them in a solution of white vinegar (just a little in the bottom of the bowl) and water. Swish them around so they all get wet, then drain and put on paper towels on the counter. Blot dry with more towels and let them sit for an hour or so until they dry. Pop them back into their container and refrigerate. They will stay fresh for at least a week and no, you cannot taste the vinegar. I have been buying double boxes at Costco and have never had to throw one berry away. Try it, if you love raspberries like I do.
