02 Oct 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!
