Sweet potato toast is one of the newest nutrition "trends" and I must say, I like it! Basically you toast sweet potato slices like you would bread in the toaster and eat it like an open faced sandwich (why didn't we think of this sooner?!) Anyways, below is one of my favorite recipes and it's super quick and easy.
This recipe is a delicious way to curb your afternoon sugar craving. The greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein, calcium & vitamin D. The fiber from the sweet potato and fruit will help keep you full (and away from the vending machine). Let me know what you think!
