Plan Z Phase: This is a Z3.5 (ZReboot 3.5) recipe.

Sourdough Bread and Blood Sugar. Based on the research, regular non-sourdough white bread has a glycemic index of 71 (that’s High GI), while sourdough bread has a glycemic index of 53 (that’s Medium low GI). The bacteria and yeast consume the starches and sugars in the flour, so it has less starch when you eat it.

So, if you are choosing your breads and don’t have access to low carb bread, this is a very good option. I bought a tiny, round loaf (boule) and sliced it up. Freeze the rest for later.

Servings: Serves 2. Can easily be doubled.


  • 6 slices of bacon fried to your liking. I like mine crispy. Try to find no nitrate/no nitrite bacon.
  • 1 large, ripe avocado
  • 5 green onions, chopped. White and light green parts only.
  • 2 slices of sour dough bread. Mine were about 6” long and 2.5” wide.
  • Grated sea salt
  • 1 Roma tomato or any small tomato, sliced
  • Pepper flakes (optional)
  • an egg or two (optional)


Making avocado toast is a very free-form exercise. You can build it the way you want to; that’s what makes it so easy – and delicious!

In a medium bowl, put in your scooped out avocado. Mash with a fork until it still has some lumps.  Stir in the green onions and mash a bit more to your liking. I like mine lumpy. If you want to add your favorite guac herbs or seasonings, now’s the time. I like mine plain.

Toast your pieces of sour dough bread. While it is still warm, spread on some of the avocado spread. Lightly dust with grated sea salt (optional, but this is what really brings out the avocado flavor for me). If you are wanting yours spicy this is when you’ll spread a light dusting of the pepper flakes on, too. That way they mix with the avocado; giving it a guacamole feel.

Top with the bacon and the tomato.Or the egg. Whatever you want! Sometimes I nix the egg and spread radish slices across the top.

You are ready to serve. Light meal. Or you can make it bigger with a side salad.
