Sweet Potato Toast
Sweet Potatoes are loaded with protein and loaded antioxidant properties; they are an excellent source of Vitamin A and C, rather than spreading your morning peanut butter on a slice of toast try putting your almond butter on a slice of sweet potato and add some slice banana on top.
It only takes a few minutes in the morning and you have a healthy start to your morning and it will keep you full for hours.
Slice your Sweet Potatoes in vertical slices about 1/4 inch thick and toast them in your toaster on HIGH for approximately 2-4 minutes, if they still appear uncooked put them in again for another few minutes.
When they come out of the toaster they may seem a little dry but please spread a little olive oil if you are adding a savory topping, or try some almond butter, peanut butter with a fruit topping, try some of these toppings.
