Sweet Potato Toast
Sweet potatoes are one of the super foods. They are packed with vitamins and fiber and will keep you full for hours. If you are trying to cut down on grains or gluten or just looking for a super healthy alternative to bread, try using toasted sweet potato slices and then top them with your favorite sandwich fixings.
Simply slice sweet potatoes in 1/4 slices and toast twice in a regular toaster. Top with goodies like peanut butter and bananas, or avocado and squeezed lime juice, or tuna mixed with olive oil and red onion. Yum! Enjoy!
