Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
The Avocado and Tomato Bruschetta is a refreshing twist on the classic Italian antipasto. Perfect for a light lunch, a starter, or even as a wholesome snack, this dish combines the creamy texture of ripe avocado with the juiciness of fresh tomatoes. It’s a symphony of flavors that not only pleases the palate but also aligns with healthful eating, making it a perfect fit for those looking to add nutrient-dense meals to their diet.
4 large ripe tomatoes, diced
2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted, and chopped
1/3 cup red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 clove garlic, peeled and halved
1 loaf crusty whole-grain bread, sliced into 1/2-inch thick slices
Tomato and Avocado Mixture: In a mixing bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, chopped avocados, and red onion. Gently toss with the chopped basil leaves, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
Prepare the Bread: While the mixture is resting, preheat your grill or broiler on high. Grill or broil the bread slices until golden and crisp, about 1-2 minutes per side.
Garlic Rub: Once the bread is toasted, rub one side of each slice with the halved garlic clove. The rough texture of the toasted bread will catch the garlic, adding a subtle flavor.
Assemble: Spoon generous amounts of the tomato and avocado mixture onto each garlic-rubbed bread slice. Ensure you get a mix of both tomato and avocado, and a drizzle of the juices.
Final Touch: Drizzle a little more extra virgin olive oil over the top if desired, and give one final sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Serve: Serve the bruschetta immediately after assembly to ensure the bread remains crisp and the avocado doesn’t brown.

In the world of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), detoxing is an art—it’s about nurturing your body, caring for your internal landscape, and fostering a sense of deep, revitalizing wellness. It’s not just about what we remove, but also what we cultivate: a balanced Qi, the life force that dances through every part of our being.
In my TCM practice, detoxing is a symphony of methods designed to renew and enhance your body’s natural rhythms. We look to enliven the liver, the master of detox, alongside the kidneys, digestive tract, and lungs, our natural purification systems. The TCM pantry brims with nature’s detoxifiers like leafy greens, healing bitters, and soothing herbal teas, all working in concert to cleanse your blood and support your liver’s health.

But let’s not forget the soul in the equation. Stress, the silent disruptor of harmony, is met with the gentle power of meditation, the focused calm of Qi Gong, and the flowing movements of Tai Chi. In my approach, emotional serenity is as vital to detoxing as the air we breathe. Join me on this journey of holistic detoxification, where every step is a step toward a more vibrant, energized, and balanced you. Let’s embrace this ancient wisdom and transform our health, one harmonious moment at a time.
