Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and starting the day off on a nutritious and wholesome note is a sure shot way to ensure that you have high energy and to take you through a hectic day. Guacamole is made with ripened avocados which provide a ton of anti oxidants as well as healthy fats which are essential for energy. The creaminess it lends allows you to skip cream cheese or mayo, or any other sandwich spread which is high in calories. Instead you can achieve the same creaminess, with added health benefits. Adding loads of vegetables for crunch and sandwiching it in a bagel is a great way to get proteins and fibre too. Choose your favourite raw vegetables for a crispy, crunchy sandwich to set you off on the right note! It also makes a great picnic sandwich, or a snack to pack in your kids tiffin box.

Directions for Breakfast Bagel Sandwich With Guacamole & Shredded Vegetables
To start making Breakfast Bagel sandwich with guacamole and shredded vegetables first prepare the guacamole.
Slice the avocados down the middle, scooping out the stone and then using a spoon scoop out the tender, green flesh. Place it in a mixing bowl and mash it roughly using the back of a fork. It’s okay to have it a little chunky, and not smooth chunks. Add in lime juice to keep the avocado from going black, then top it with the chopped cilantro, chopped tomatoes, chopped red onion, jalapeño/chillies and mix well.
Season it with salt and combine once again. Cover the dish with a plate and chill it until further use.
Next, slice and toast the bagels in a bagel toaster. When ready to assemble the sandwich, spread the prepared guacamole over the toasted bagel. Scoop some shredded vegetables over and cover with some more guacamole on top.
Sprinkle salt and pepper, and cover with the other half of the bagel. Serve warm, or pack it away fro a snack box or picnic.
