Sweet potato is the mother of all healthy carbs, Sweet, delicious and full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidant's. My favourite way to re-fuel after a high intensity run or sweat session is with complex carbs. I feel best when I follow a grain-free, paleo style diet, so i'm often experimenting with different recipes using my two favourite carbs sweet potato and banana.
Its easy to over complicate everything. Instagram can often make us believe we need to bake a loaf of perfect bread using 100 different pricey ingredients. My food motto is just to take it back to basics.
Why eat bread made form 10+ ingredients when you can nourish your body with perfect food straight from nature.
This recipe is the bomb because its so FAST, convenient and fun to make.
This sweet potato toast is so simple!! I encourage you to get creative with your toppings. If you love avocado and vegemite on toast, why not try that. :)
1 small-medium size sweet potato (washed and thinly sliced)
Topping's to choose from:
Fresh sliced berries
Nut butter of choice
Rice malt syrup or raw honey
Full fat canned coconut cream
Nuts ,seeds, or granola for topping
Isabelle's protein spread (see below)
Turn the dial on your toaster up to the highest setting. Toast your thinly sliced sweet potato untill tender and cooked. You may need to toast the slices for 2-3 rounds depending on your toaster.
Top with your favourite fruits, nuts or butters. ENJOY!
One of my favourite things to make for topping my toast or pancakes is 'Protein spread'. Home made protein spread is a staple in my daily diet because its a simple way for me to get enough protein with the amount of physical activity I do. I don't eat very much animal protein during the day so I enjoy adding the spread to my breakfast to balance my macros.
The key to a delicious protein spread is a GREAT tasting protein powder. Ive tried and tested every natural plant-based protein ever made! My preferred brands to make the right texture and flavor 'spread' are B RAW (salted caramel) & PRANA ON (vanilla, super berry). Vanilla is a perfect staple protein flavour to start with.
I like to experiment and make different flavour spreads. If you want to keep it simple you can just use protein powder and dairy free milk or you can get creative and add boosters like cinnamon, raw cacao, nut butter, sea salt etc.
For the sweet potato toast I used this recipe below :)
Chocolate protein spread:
1 tbsp of vanilla or salted caramel protein powder
1 tbsp raw cacao
1 tbsp of melted coconut oil
1 tbsp of almond or peanut butter
1-2 tsp of sweetner or equivalent stevia drops
