Looking for a healthy snack that only takes seconds to prepare? A common misconception about eating healthy is that it’s a) expensive and b) time-consuming. While that can be true, it doesn’t HAVE to be.

Introducing Saturday Snack in a Second. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite snacks that you can whip up in no time and will not put a dent in your wallet.

Today’s snack is the Avocado Tomato Crisp.
Dietary information: vegan, gluten-free, nut-free

The ingredients:
– ¼ avocado
– 3 thin slices of a small/ medium-sized tomato

– Pepper to taste

The preparation:
1) Scoop out the avocado and mash onto your rice cake
2) Place tomatoes on top of avocado
3) Layer onions on top of tomatoes
4) Sprinkle with pepper to taste
