Eat Beautiful: Sweet Potato Toasts
Avocado Toast on GF bread? So 2017.
Whilst breakfast for me during the week is usually a smoothie or bircher muesli, I love to take a little more time on weekends to create some healthy and delicious alternative breakfast options for Husband Hanway and I - and these sweet potato toasts have become a firm favourite!
Typically gluten free bread does not have a ton of health benefits, so switching out the typical bread base on your avocado toast for our superstar sweet potato means you are getting a ton of gut healing and detoxification boosting fibre, energy and immune system boosting B Vitamins and Vitamin C, and skin loving beta carotene, which converts to Vitamin A in the body. I see a lot of mineral deficiencies in the lab work of my clients, and sweet potatoes are a great source of much needed iron, calcium and selenium.
And you can use your sweet potato toasts for way more than just avocado! I love to experiment with different toppings, including protein rich hummus and hemp seeds, or go for a sweet but still blood sugar friendly combo of almond butter and pomegranate seed!
Super Simple Sweet Potato Toasts
Always choose organic sweet potato and wash throughly before cooking.
Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
Top and tail (slice the ends off) the sweet potatoes, then cut lengthwise into slices approximately 1/2 inch thick.
Place the sweet potato slices on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, and bake for around 20 minutes, or until soft.
Top with your favourite toppings and enjoy!
