If you're tired of the same old breakfast routine, but haven't got much time in the morning, may we suggest a sweet potato instead?

Sure, it sounds a little crazy at first, but once you try it - you'll love it. Sweet potato slices are the new toast and they can be loaded with all kinds of delicious toppings.

These tasty taters are full of vitamin A, vitamin B5, B6 as well as thiamine, niacin and riboflavin. Even more importantly, they're a solid source of vitamin D, which comes in handy to fight osteoporosis.
