Looking to incorporate more veggies into your diet in a unique and delicious way? Give sweet potato toast a try! This innovative approach uses sweet potato slices as a healthier alternative to traditional toast, and it serves as a versatile base for both sweet and savory toppings. Plus, sweet potatoes are packed with essential nutrients, including vitamin A and vitamin C, making this dish a nutritious choice.
Here’s how to make your own sweet potato toast:
1 large sweet potato, cut into ¼-inch lengthwise slices (generally yields about 4-6 slices)
2 teaspoons of olive oil
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
Place the sweet potato slices in a bowl and gently toss them with olive oil until they are evenly coated.
Arrange the sweet potato slices on the prepared baking tray, making sure not to overcrowd them.
Place the tray in the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove the tray from the oven, flip the sweet potato slices over, and then return them to the oven to bake for an additional 10 minutes or until they are tender and slightly crispy.
Now comes the fun part – adding your favorite toppings to your sweet potato toasts. Here are some delicious topping ideas to get you started:
1. Ricotta & Smoked Salmon:
Spread a generous layer of ricotta cheese on the sweet potato toast.
Add slices of smoked salmon for a savory kick.
Enhance the flavor with thinly sliced onions and a sprinkle of capers for textural and flavor contrast.
2. Smashed Avocado & Poached Egg:
Top the sweet potato toast with mashed avocado for creaminess.
Add a perfectly poached egg for a protein boost.
Elevate the taste with chili flakes and fresh microgreens for extra flavor and texture.
3. Nut Butter & Berries:
Slather your sweet potato toast with your favorite nut butter.
Layer on fresh berries for a delightful burst of sweetness.
Warning: This combination is basically irresistible and might make you want to eat it all day long.
With its vibrant colors and mouthwatering toppings, sweet potato toast isn’t just delicious – it’s a visual treat as well. Plus, it’s an excellent way to incorporate more veggies into your diet. And if you have any leftover cooked sweet potato slices, you can refrigerate them for up to four days. When you’re ready to enjoy them again, simply toast them in a toaster, just like you would with regular bread. Bon appétit! 🍠🍴

I offer online nutrition coaching to clients who are ready to quit dieting and start looking and feeling better, with more confidence and increased energy levels – without complicated diets or painful workouts
What exactly is “nutrition coaching”… and how will it help you reach your goals?
When it comes to losing weight and getting the body you want, “eating better” is one of the most important steps. The only problem?
Most of the common diet advice you receive simply isn’t sustainable…
- “Avoid your favorite foods… forever!”
- “Don’t eat after 7pm!”
- “Weigh and measure every morsel of food you eat!”
If you’ve tried something like this before and “failed”—or just couldn’t stick with it—you’re not alone.
(And it’s definitely NOT your fault.)
I talk to people every day who are trying to muster up all the willpower they can find to diet their way to a better body… but they still aren’t getting the results they want.
The good news? There’s a better way.
My nutrition coaching focuses on strategic, doable daily actions that are designed to fit into YOUR lifestyle. With this approach, you’ll learn how to:
- Eat better—without dieting or feeling deprived.
- Lose weight—without giving up your favorite foods.
- Ditch the food rules—overcoming the guilt and shame.
- Feel energized all day—so you can enjoy all the things you want and need to do.
- Get the results you’ve always wanted—and build the healthy habits you need to stay that way for good.
Bottom line: My goal is to help you learn how to “eat better” so that it becomes easy, consistent, and automatic.
No restrictive dieting. No weighing or measuring your food. No “one size fits all” meal plan.
Instead, you’ll learn how to bring healthy eating into your lifestyle and get in amazing shape—while building the habits you need to stay that way for good.
How is nutrition coaching different from fitness coaching or personal training?
As a coach, my number one goal is to help my clients reach THEIR goals. Doing that effectively requires me to constantly look for opportunities to learn new skills and hone my craft.
This is exactly why I chose to become a Certified Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition.
I’ve now been trained by the best of the best, so I know what works.
(The nutrition method they teach is backed by science and has been proven to work with over 100,000 of their own clients… so it’s the real deal.)
The best part? The knowledge and skills I’ve gained can help you finally get the results you want—and keep them for life.
Through the rigorous training I’ve received, I learned that while exercise is a crucial part of losing weight, feeling good, and achieving optimal health… it’s only half the equation.
The other half—as you may have guessed—is nutrition.
I’d actually argue that nutrition is more important than exercise, because while you spend a few hours working out each week, challenges around eating and food can happen anytime (some would say all the time!).
That’s why having a coach there to guide and support you is crucial.
Don’t get me wrong: Exercise is very important. But no amount of exercise will ever be able to “outwork” bad nutrition habits. So in order to help you get the life-transforming results you deserve—I’m excited to be able to offer nutrition coaching in an official capacity.
What I learned while becoming a Certified Nutrition Coach opened my eyes to a whole new way of doing things. And through this science-proven approach, I’m ready to help you get even better results through healthy nutrition habits.
