The talented daughter of actor Suniel Shetty, made her debut in the Hindi film industry a few years back with Hero. While she received plenty of accolades for her great performance in the film, the actress is also known to be a foodie. The model turned actress has been known to be quite vocal about her love for food on social media. Remember the time she did a Q and A with her followers on Instagram and revealed how she loved rajma chawal and would any day head to McDonald’s for a cheat day. She even expressed that her favourite ice cream flavour is strawberry. 

Once she also posted a picture of herself with coconut water in hand and said that it was her way of survival in 32 degrees. With so much feasting happening, we doubted we’d ever see a healthy bite on her feed. Fortunately, yesterday we caught her eating an avocado toast. And it’s not just the toast that surprised us but the fact that it was half eaten shows how much she relishes this fruit. Athiya Shetty posted the picture on her Instagram story on Sunday and didn’t caption it. 

The crunchy toast was layered with sliced avocados and on top, we could see some grated cheese. All of this together looked really creamy and cheesy and we loved it. Here’s what we are talking about.
