Sweet Potato Toast with a Trio of Toppings

Raw Fusion, Vegan, Gluten/Grain-Free, Paleo-Friendly When I first heard about “sweet potato toast” from a raw foods colleague, I was super intrigued.  One of my weak spots in maintaining a raw fusion (50% and higher raw on a daily basis) is my love affair with toast and butter.  But I am finally at the point […]
