1/2 avocado, cubed
1 egg
Sea salt
Ground pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice, plus an extra splash or two

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss kale with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper and place on baking sheet prior to roasting. Roast kale for 12-15 minutes, flipping at least once throughout the process. Mix 1/8 cup olive oil with lemon, sea salt, and pepper. Place quinoa into serving bowl and mix in olive oil mixture. Dress cubed avocado with a sprinkle of lemon juice, sea salt, and pepper. Place avocado on top of quinoa, and roasted kale to follow.  Fry up egg over medium heat, about 3 minutes each side, season with sea salt and pepper, and place on top of kale. Splash a drop or three of your favorite hot sauce on egg. Cut into egg and let the goodness seep into the rest of the goodness.
