Well hello there!! You are in for a real treat today my friend! I’ve got some sweet potato toast that is OUT OF THIS WORLD.
If you are like me and are sensitive to gluten, I FEEL YOU DAWG. And because you can’t eat gluten, you feel really left out of the basic white girl community… ‘Cause like, AVO TOAST, duhhh.
Well, fear not! I am HERE FOR YOU.
I’m SUPER PUMPED to share this sweet potato toast recipe with so you can satisfy your basic white girl needs. Sans gluten.
WHY DON’T I EAT GLUTEN YOU ASK?
I stay away from gluten because it makes me bloated, constipated, gassy, fatigued AND gives me brain fog. It’s just not worth it to me.
I thrive off of feeling my best every day. And gluten DOES NOT make me feel my best.
I’m actually pretty sensitive to a lot of things, like inadequate sleep, dehydration, where I’m at in my cycle, foods I put into my body, etc. Unfortunately, some factors I can’t control, but there are plenty that I can. And the easiest thing for me to control is what I put into my body.
If I eat whole foods that are unprocessed, dairy-free and gluten-free, I feel good. Because of this, I never went back to eating foods that are processed or contain gluten/dairy after I started paleo.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t miss a thick New York deli sandwich on a poppy seed roll, an everything bagel with fluffy vegetable cream cheese or fresh out of the oven Bronx style Margherita pizza.
BUT FIRST… A QUICK RANT
I purposefully say, New York, because I grew up just outside of New York City and no other place can beat New York sandwiches, bagels or pizza. And yes, I’ve tried bagels out here in California. I bit the bullet and sacrificed feeling crappy for a few days. And I literally asked around for the best bagels in the Bay Area! It was just NOT GOOD.
I also will not try the pizza out here. Refuse. If I’m going to feel like crap for a few days it better be some good ass pizza. And I have yet to see or be convinced that there is such a thing out here on the West Coast. Pizza My Heart is NOT good pizza you guys. I can say that with confidence, just by visual.
Ughhh, I digress, as usual…
OK, BACK TO GLUTEN
I definitely miss the all the bread basics, like… TOAST! Almond butter and jelly, anything almond butter really, almond cream cheese and lox, avocado toast… I can’t be a basic white girl if I can’t get some avo toast!! I mean come on!
There are so many different ways to substitute now. Commercial paleo-friendly baked breads are out there! But I just wanted to keep it simple instead of searching around for the perfect paleo bread. And I LOVE sweet potatoes anyways.
With that being said, I’m pumped to have THE TOAST OF ALL TOASTS for you to satisfy that basic inner white girl.
I mean even if you can eat gluten you will absolutely fall in love with this sweet potato toast. Don’t these just look AMAZING?!?!
