Sweet Potato Toast

Any way you “slice” it, bread is a processed and refined food, not a whole food. Remember, a whole food is something that doesn’t come in a package…something you can walk into a field or garden and “pick”. Last time I checked, you can’t walk into a field and pick a loaf of bread…wheat yes, bread no. So what is a health conscious, whole foodie to do?

Enter sweet potatoes! Yes, the new thing in the whole food movement is “sweet potato toast”. That is toast made from slices of sweet potato. We’ve discussed sweet potatoes before in the article: 15 Reasons Why Sweet Potatoes Are Perfect For Diabetics – Natural And Healthy World. They are incredibly healthy and a wonderful substitute for a highly processed slice of bread. Here’s an infographic to refresh your memory:

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness! I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, RNCP, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. That sure looks tasty! I love sweet potatoes. I do still eat bread but the majority of what I eat is hand made – either fresh tortillas from a place a couple miles away from where I live, or bread baked in my own oven with nothing but flour, water, salt, yeast, and sometimes eggs. Still not perfect, but sure more tasty! I totally agree that whole is the way to go, where possible.
