Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – as our moms and favorite wellness enthusiasts have taught us over the years. But breakfast doesn’t need to revolve around oatmeal, pancakes, and cereal anymore. Though we’re still very, very big fans of these A.M. staples, many of us wake up wanting something completely different (and just as delicious). Enter: Sweet Potato Toast, which has totally transformed the breakfast game since it started flooding Instagram our feeds.

In an attempt to satisfy both sweet and savory cravings, we dreamt up two versions. Using the veggie as the base, which is first toasted, use avocado or nut butter as your chosen spread. (Or better yet, treat yourself to one of each.) Then, top off your creations with sea salt and red pepper flakes if you’re in the mood for a savory meal, and use bananas and berries if you have more of a sweet tooth.

It also supports stronger hair, skin, nails, and joints, so you don’t have to feel guilty about trying one sweet and one savory Sweet Potato Toast.
