this sweet potato toast is done in two ways – catering to both sweet and salty flavours! the superfood ingredients in each toast support elevated and balanced mood.
sweet potatoes contain nutrients that support healthy blood sugar regulation, as well as have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. balancing our blood sugar is one of the quickest ways to see improvement when it comes to our mood because we are supporting the slow release of glucose into our bloodstream, avoiding any “hangry” symptoms (such as negative mood or energy crash).
hemp seeds and sunflower seed butter are both great sources of healthy fat, which also support balanced blood sugar.
