Sweet Potato Toast Is Kicking Ass All Over The Internet These Days

Trine Jensen-Burke

You know how the whole world (at least if our Instagram feeds are to be believed) has been going ga-ga over avocado toast lately?

Well, no it seems avocado has met its toast match. Finally.

Say hello to the sweet potato toast, the latest craze to sweep through social media like a nutritionally correct hurricane.

Curious? Here is the deal:

What you need: A sweet potato and a toaster.

What you do: Slice the sweet potato into quarter-inch-thick pieces (they should look kind of like toast) and pop them into the toaster. After two rounds on the highest setting, they’re ready to eat–after adding toppings like avocado or almond butter, of course.

Why you should do it: For one thing, sweet potatoes are delicious. For another, they’re way more nutritious than bread. (Sweet potatoes are a fantastic source of calcium, potassium and vitamins A and C, I’ll have you know)

And then, all that’s left to do is Instagram your work and wait for the likes to roll in.
