HEALTHY + GF Avocado Toast

THIS is one of my favorite recipes. As a girl who doesn't handle gluten very well, I miss things like bread and pasta SO much. I've tried a million different gluten free items and a lot of times they just fall short of my expectations. I grew up being a pasta and bread feen and when I found out I didn't digest gluten very well, I was pretty devastated. I'm really stubborn, so of course I still tried to eat these things even though I knew they would make me sick. Now that I've been on my health kick for a solid 8 years now, my body can handle a little bit of gluten just fine, especially when I take my digestive enzymes, but it's still not really worth it for me knowing that it isn't healthy for my body. This is why I decided to make my own flatbread for avocado toast and I promise its SO good. This recipe along with so many amazing others is part of my 5-week healthy eating plan: NOURISH + GLOW and I hope you love it as much as I do.

1 1/2 c almond flour
1 tbsp chopped rosemary, thyme or dill
1 tbsp ghee/grass fed butter, softened
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
