Food to Fall For | Sweet Potato Toast

Sweet Potato Toast featuring Betsy's Best Nut Butters

As the weather transitions from summer to fall, so should your diet. We all require different nutrients in the fall/winter versus spring/summer. Cooler temperatures cause the body to crave warmth, so loading up on warming harvest produce and seasonings help prepare the body for winter.

An even better reason to change your food regimen each season is to get out of a diet rut. We are creatures of habit who tend to eat the same foods over and over again. Changing up your diet each quarter allows a new variety of nutrients and different taste bud experiences. Also, local produce is more available when eating with the season. Autumn is synonymous with apple orchards and pumpkin patches—a great weekend activity and the perfect time to pick your local harvest.

This fall, enjoy the changing of the leaves and the foods of the season. Your body will thank you!

Enjoy these fall harvest produce in your diet this season:

Apples, arugula, Asian pears, beet greens, beets, boo choy, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, chard, collard greens, corn, cranberries, cucumbers, eggplant, fennel, garlic, grapes, green beans, kale, leeks, lettuce, mustard greens, mushrooms, okra, onion, parsnips, peas, peppers, potatoes, pumpkins, radishes, raspberries, rutabagas, scallions, shallots, spinach, sprouts, squash, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, turnips, ginger, peppercorns, mustard seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and all spice

Sweet Potato Toast Recipe

Toss the bread and use sweet potato instead! These creative ideas will give a new and innovative way to make a superfood swap to your morning routine.

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut or Seed Butter
  • cinnamon, coconut, nuts/seeds or fresh fruit for toppings (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash the sweet potato and slice lengthwise into long slices about 1/4 in thick. Place on cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake about 20 min or until just soft enough to pierce with a fork, but not too soft where it feels like mush. Remove and allow to cool. Top with Betsy’s Best and add your favorite topping.

Betsy’s Butter & Bean Choco-Spread

Pretty much everything tastes better with this vitamin-packed spread on top. 

Place all ingredients except for water in a food processor fitted with the “S” blade or a high powered blender. Pulse to combine, and then run the motor. Drizzle in water until the dip is super smooth; you may need a few tablespoons extra water as you go along.
