Ah, avocado toast. How did we live without you for so long? The classic version couldn't be any simpler to make and yet is oh-so delicious. Plus, avocados are good for you: They're rich in healthy fats, antioxidant polyphenols, potassium, fiber and even protein. What's more, research shows that eating half an avocado as part of your midday meal staves off hunger for a full three hours after lunch, leaving you less likely to reach for that 3p.m. donut.

Ready to whip up your own avocado toast? We asked three top nutritionists for their favorite takes on this hot food trend.
