Special Notes:

You can choose from a wide variety of tasty toppings that include avocado, guacamole, yogurt, cheese, nuts and seeds.  You can also use various herbs such as oregano, basil or thyme.  Oregano is a great antibacterial agent. It has phytonutrients (thymol and carvacrol), which fight infections such as staph. It’s loaded with antioxidants that help prevent cell damage, and it’s an excellent source of fiber, vitamin K, manganese, iron, vitamin E, tryptophan and calcium.

If you want to add in some protein, you can put some organic chicken, roast beef or turkey slices on this with some mustard if you are a fan!   If you have trouble finding organic and pasture-raised products at your local health food store than try out US Wellness Meats where you can order just about any type of meat you want and it is all the highest quality.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This savory sweet potato toast is a great grain-free alternative to traditional toast.  Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A, B vitamins, prebiotic fibers and trace minerals making this a tasty and healthy side dish.

While sweet potatoes are higher in starch and not used on a ketogenic diet, they are a great food for many individuals who are looking to reduce inflammation and improve gut health.  Sweet potatoes and other root vegetables are used on the autoimmune paleo diet we use in our autoimmune elimination program.  I recommend adding some good protein and healthy fats like guacamole or avocado slices to help stabilize your blood sugar and enjoy great flavor.
