Toast 1/4-inch-thick slices of sweet potato until tender and starting to brown, 12 to 15 minutes. You'll get a similar amount of satisfying fiber for half the calories of bread, plus more than 100% of the daily value of vitamin A. Healthy fats in the toppings help your body absorb this vision- and immune-boosting nutrient.
