Sweet Potatoes

Counting your carbs? Miss bread? Try this sweet potato toast recipe!

When you think of sweet potatoes and yams you probably think “CARBS! NO THANK YOU!” but even Dr. Atkins allowed them on his low-carb diet plan so before you rule them out, check your own diet because you may be surprised to find that because they are a “superfood” you can have them on your own plan. Sweet potatoes are delicious by themselves, or when served as part of a meal and can also be substituted in virtually any recipe that calls for apples, squash or white potatoes.
