Upgraded Avocado Toast Recipe
CHLORELLA AVOCADO TOAST WITH SHROOM DIP
This is my personal paleo twist on the classic avocado toast. I intentionally chose these ingredients because they are yummy first of all, and they nourish the brain, hormones, and gut. They make me feel good from the inside out. And that’s a huge part of feeling rare and radiant.
- Sun Potion Chlorella - A great detoxifier to help bind and eliminate toxins that accumulate in your digestive tract. So think happy gut here! Also a great source of essential nutrients.
- LakaLiving Super Shroom Drip - A combination of macadamia nuts and adaptogens to help deliver oxygen to the your body and brain. So think happy brain here with more energy and better cognition.
- Avocado - Think healthy fats here which equal happy hormones! They’re full of fiber, omega 3s, and nutrients.
lemon zest/squeeze fresh lemon
1/2 tsp. black sesame seeds
1-2 tsp. Sun Potion Chlorella

*Alternatively, you can mush everything together in a bowl and spread on your toast like a spread. In Joy!
A FEW WORDS FROM CATHRYN ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN, FOOD, PERCEPTION OF BEAUTY, AND REALITY
When it comes to beauty, how do you define it? When it comes to your own beauty, this question becomes even trickier.
The better question is how do you perceive your beauty? When you look in the mirror or see yourself in photos, what thoughts automatically pop in? Or rather, what thoughts have been conditioned to pop in?
The truth is that your perception is your reality. And you can change that reality by changing your perception.
When you look at yourself, you are seeing your body the way you have been conditioned to. This can be a tough pill to swallow, especially in today’s diet-driven, body-image obsessed society that promotes a one size fits all idea (including all of the social marketing that tells you you’re not good enough as is).
So when it comes to the beauty realm, I like to go straight for the mind first. And “food as medicine” can be a helpful tool along the journey.
If you enjoy foods that nourish your gut, hormones, and brain, you’ll be more likely to feel good. And from that place of feeling good, be able to work on changing your perception, what you’ve been conditioned to see.
Happy gut, happy hormones, and happy brain go a long way in allowing you to tap into mind work, where the real magic is. Because nobody’s up for changing perceptions or working on the mind when you’re bloated, brain foggy, or on the blood-sugar roller coaster. At least not me!
