Avocados are incredible nutrition. They provide more potassium than a banana and 15 grams of healthy fats like oleic acid, which has been linked to reduced inflammation and beneficial effects on the genes that fight cancer. The great thing about avocados is they are so versatile—you can add them to smoothies, throw them on tacos for dinner, eat them plain out of a bowl or even add them to desserts. We are avocado obsessed, and after trying these recipes for Avocado Toast, you will be too! Avocado toast is a quick and easy way to get a healthy and filling breakfast or snack. All of these recipes take less than 5 minutes to make and will keep you full and energized for hours!

Chimed from Nx Style pairs his favorite floral button down with a bright skinny pant and neutral sneakers for a relaxed, yet refined look.

How to Wear the Oxford Shirt with McLavin Style

What Inspired Lav’s Look:
“Rather than shying away from unique colors, challenging and implementing them in my style gives me that sense of excitement. Choosing this Lime shirt over any other common blue, black or white color was one of the reasons. A very unique and subtle color, if paired with the right pieces could be pulled off really well. Pairing it with dark denim and adding that bit of camo with my sneakers and quilted jacket to fight the cold and polish the look”
