If you need to make Avocado Toast the night before, mash your avocados and squeeze some lemon juice which acts as a natural preservative. Put them in a ziplock bag pressing all the air out before sealing it and keep it in the fridge overnight. Keep your mashed avocado and toast separated until it's time to eat, do not spread the avocado on the bread the night before. When you're ready to eat your toast, cut off a corner of your ziplock bag and squeeze it out on your slice of bread. You can always toast the bread right before eating it or simply toast it, allow it to cool, and put it in a Tupperware-type container.
