Exciting news for avocado enthusiasts: Peak avocado season is upon us. While avocados are grown in California from February through September, avocado output peaks during the summer months—meaning they’ll be cheaper. “Avocados are packed with monounsaturated fats and oleic fats, which may help in reducing belly fat,” Gillett says, That’s because these fats take a long time to digest, keeping you satisfied longer. And since hydrating is extra important in hot weather, topping this toast with cucumbers is a smart move. “Cucumbers are exceptionally refreshing and an excellent way to stay hydrated in summer months,” says Gorin, “since they’re made up of over 95 percent water!”
Recipe: Mash 1/3 of an avocado and spread it on whole-wheat toast. Top with sliced cucumber, and season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
