Check it out: You can make sweet potatoes in the toaster!

 TIP: To get the most nutrients from your sweet potato toasts, add a little fat, such as peanut butter or almond butter. This will help your body better absorb all the beta-carotene found in sweet potatoes.

FUN FACT: In addition to beta-carotene and vitamin C, sweet potatoes are a good source of vitamin B-6, which helps keep your brain and nervous system healthy.​
