Salmon and avocado boats

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I can only eat so many eggs on this low-carb, Keto diet. Sometimes I feel like Bill Murray in Groundhog's Day and every day starts with a scrambled or fried egg. They're a great source of protein and healthy fats, but isn't there another way? Why yes, there is! The recipe below is a great way to break your fast from eggs.
Both wild-caught salmon and avocados are great sources of healthy fats, which are essential to your success on the Keto diet. This avocado boat whips up so quickly, you'll have no problem making it on weekdays before work, too.
