Baked Avocado Eggs + Being on TV

This quick and easy baked egg in an avocado recipe is perfect for breakfast or snacking. It’s low in sugar and loaded with protein, healthy fats and fiber!

You guys… I made my television debut yesterday!! I was asked by Qrunch Foods to do a segment about Non-GMO month on ABC 8 Good Morning Richmond. I’ve never done any tv work before so accepting the spot was definitely taking me out of my comfort zone, but I said yes. I kept thinking of the “do something every day that scares you” quote and knew that I’d be nervous but that it was an awesome opportunity and one I couldn’t turn down.

On Friday I went shopping for a few of my favorite Non-GMO verified products and spent the remainder of the day practicing. I probably looked like a crazy woman talking to myself because I was definitely rehearsing the entire time I was shopping. Oh well, I’m sure the Whole Foods employees are used to people grumbling about GMOs under their breath. 😉

Good Morning Richmond with Darrielle Snipes

Friday night I went to bed early so I’d be well rested and arrived at the studio at 7:30AM for the 8:00AM show. Darrielle Snipes greeted me with a smile and showed me where to set up. About 45 minutes later we were live. I felt my nerves kick in but it actually wasn’t as intimating as I thought it would be because there wasn’t a camera-person filming or anything — just a teleprompter and a few screens. Seeing an actual camera probably would have made me more nervous. Darrielle made it feel like we were having a regular conversation and I felt really comfortable sharing the recipes. Overall, the segment went really well — especially considering it was my first time. If you’re interested in seeing the segment, it’s posted on the WRIC website.

I also wanted to share the baked avocado egg recipe here because it’s a new favorite of mine. <— Y’all know I’m all about the healthy fats!!

Baked Avocado Eggs

I know warm avocado might seem kind of strange but I’ve been hooked on it since we started grilling avocados last summer. Heating the avocado makes it even more creamy!

I like the baked avocado eggs warm but I also like them cold. A lot of the time I’ll make four at one time so I can refrigerate a few for a quick and portable breakfast or a fast post-workout snack. Easy peasy and only 2 ingredients. I top mine with salt, pepper and a little hot sauce!
