So what’s the scoop on sweet potato toast? If you’re like me, you’ve been seeing this idea all over social media and wondering if it is actually good, or just a weird phase. You guys, IT’S DELISH!!!!!! It’s kind of like the new avocado toast (but let’s be real, it’s hard to beat avo toast). But there are so many different ways to fix it, you can have it for breakfast or lunch, and it’s nutritious! The perfect combo right? In case you haven’t noticed from most of my recipe posts, I have a serious sweet tooth. My boyfriend and I were joking last night about this as I was eating my second helping of Tiramisu that I made for his Valentine’s Day dinner. I could eat sweets all day (which I practically do any way) and never get burnt out on them. I try to eat as healthy as possible, but I always tend to lean towards sweet things for some reason. This just tends to get worse as I get older, but I’m not complaining. Could you imagine being one of those people that hates chocolate? Nightmares.
The first time I heard about sweet potato toast was from Abbey Sharp, the amazing foodie/blogger/recipe curator from Abbey’s Kitchen. So So Abbey sings this little song at the beginning of her YouTube Video 3 Sweet Potato Toast Recipes, that goes a little something like “Sweet potato, sweet potato toast, whoo!” and then just picture it in this super funny voice that I can’t even describe, but is seriously so funny and catchy. You’ll just have to watch the video because that description was dreadful haha. So anyway, ever since I watched that video, this song just randomly pops up in my head and then I have to sing it out loud. It makes me laugh every time and I knew that was a sign that I NEEDED to try sweet potato toast.
A fun fact about me is that I am topping CRAZY. Whether it’s topping oatmeal, acai bowls, yogurt, toast…I just love putting a TON of toppings. I have 2 rules for toppings. #1 is that I have to have crunchy toppings. I’m one of those people that cannot eat yogurt, oatmeal, or anything with that consistency unless it has toppings. And #2, it has to look pretty. With my sweet potato toast, I chose a variety of toppings. My absolute favorite topping right now is Square Organics. I go through boxes of their bars. They are great by themselves, but I like adding them to things like this toast because helloooooo, CHOCOLATE….and they are super healthy as well!
