Avocado Sweet Potato Toast with Poached Egg

We are going back to the basics with this recipe. It is one of our favorites as it contains a solid balance of fat, protein, and carbs.

For sufferers, balance is everything. The plate should contain nutrient-dense foods to help your nervous system and digestive system at bay. This will help keep your migraines and headaches at bay.

Be aware of how you feel, as some sufferers may be sensitive to avocados or eggs.

Sweet potatoes taste like dessert and have many health benefits; antioxidants, anti-inflammatory nutrients, and blood-sugar regulating properties. Loaded with vitamin A, C, B vitamins, and fiber – sweet potatoes are a nutrient-dense ingredient which should be a staple in your everyday eating. It has been suggested there is a link between vitamin B2 deficiency and migraine. Sweet potatoes are a good source of vitamin B2, giving you 16% of your daily recommended value per 1 cup.

Avocados are another food that has broad-based nutritional support. This high fat, nutrient-dense food provides you with support across blood sugar, cardiovascular, and controlling inflammation. For this recipe to be a success, make sure you pick a great avocado. To do so, look for the avocado that has a bit of a squeeze, not mushy!!

Lastly, make sure your eggs are pasture-raised as they have the highest nutrient quality. Eggs are a great source of choline, selenium, biotin, vitamin B12, vitamin B2, protein, and vitamin D – all nutrients required for optimal body and brain function.

If you make this recipe, please share with us as we would love to know your thoughts. Enjoy!!
