Sweet potato “toast” and “boats” (swipe to see) with avocado, sprinkles of black pepper, nutritional yeast, and some hot Hawaiian chili peppers!!🌶🔥🍠🥑 sooo delicious!! Got the idea from @livewellwitharielle ☺️ The organic sweet potatoes I used for the boats (2nd pic) were pretty big and I just cut them in half, baked them at 350 on a parchment paper lined baking sheet until they were very soft in the center, about 45-60 minutes. Then I let them cool for a few minutes, fluffed the insides and topped it with avocado and gratefully enjoyed this simple hearty meal (it’s very filling, in a good way!). For the toast (1st pic), I sliced the sweet potatoes thinner to be more like toast size, baked them at 400 for about 30 minutes until desired crisp...then plopped mashed Avocado on top and sprinkled with sprouted pumpkin seeds. So delicious!!!😁💗.

Sweet Potatoes are an incredibly nutritious food that are packed with antioxidants like beta carotene, vitamins C, E & D, and minerals such as manganese and iron. They are also high in potassium which helps to lower blood pressure by removing excess sodium and regulating fluid balance in the body. Sweet potatoes are an excellent anti-stress food and are known to help relax muscles, steady nerves, and balance cognitive function.
They are also one of the best anti-cancer foods and can particularly help to prevent breast, colon, lung, skin, and oral cancers. Sweet potatoes are known for being easy to digest and are very good for ulcers, inflamed colons, digestive disorders, and constipation. Sweet potatoes contain compounds called phytochelatins that can bind to heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, & cadmium and safely remove them through the body. 👍🏽
