Everyone loves to bitch about millennials these days. It seems to be some people’s favorite past time.

I saw a comment on social media the other day saying that the reason college degrees are so expensive is because students are buying “avocado toast, lattes and driving lambos”.

Yeah, that must be it, it couldn’t be that the cost of formal education is overinflated or anything like that. No, we go into massive amounts of student loan debt because we bought too much toast.

But it’s worth it in my opinion. But if you don’t want to splurge on boujie toast, no worries, you can make it at home! Save that money for your student loan payments, kids!

I will even provide my very special recipe (that I stole from my local fresh pressed juice joint) to you all for free!

You will need:

  • Bread of your choice
  • One ripe avocado
  • Salt of your choice, I use pink Himalayan salt
  • Lemon juice
  • Extra virgin olive oil also known as EVOO
  • Red pepper flakes


Toast your bread and while it is toasting mash up half of your avocado until it’s a spreadable consistency (no chunks). After your…
