Blood Sugar Stable Sweet Potato Toasties
We love Sweet Potato Toasties -- and even more so when they are sweet!
Let's get into the science of how to make this dish even more nutrient dense. The way to instantly boost the nutritional content of something like potatoes or rice is by prepping the starch, letting it cool, and then reheating and cooling again. This helps activate the resistant starch found in the carbohydrate.
Then when you add on a source of fat to the carb, it helps stabilize blood sugar when you eat it -- preventing any blood sugar spikes!
