Sorry avocado, there's a new trendy toast in town—and it tastes amazzzzing! But is it Eat This approved? Read on to find out!
Sweet potato

From over-the-top indulgent recipes to super healthy ones, Instagram has become more than a place for culinary inspiration, it's turned into a total food circus. These days it's nearly impossible to scroll through your feed without stumbling on something that will make your stomach growl.But the latest craze to hit the Internet is one that truly makes our heart sing! It's called sweet potato "toast" and it's exactly what it sounds like: toasted sweet potato slices topped traditional toast toppings like nut butter and avocado. (And yes, the tater slices go right into your toaster! Pretty cool, right?)

With more and more people ditching gluten (a substance found in traditional toast) by the day, it's really any wonder no one thought of this sooner—especially since sweet potatoes are a nutritional powerhouse. Not only are they packed with vitamins B6 and A (a nutrient critical for healthy vision and bone growth), one orange spud has just 112 calories and 26 grams of healthy carbohydrates. And of course, when it's sliced into "toast", these stats shrink down considerably. But what we love the most about this trend is that it's crazy versatile. Sweet potato toast can be tweaked to work as a breakfast, lunch, snack, or dinner option. To help fuel your culinary creativity, we rounded up snaps of our favorite flavor combinations! Enjoy, guys; they're all crazy delicious.
