GLUTEN FREE SWEET POTATO BREAD

Weeks turn into weekends and before you know it, it's Sunday night and you've got the blues. It seems the weekend goes by too fast- faster than you can actually take that time to relax and reset. Whether needing a day off from work, brain usage, exercise, or recuperating from a night out of drinking, it never seems enough. 

For me, I like a reset and a little bit of food indulgence on the weekend- I mean it's about the 80/20 right? With Thanksgiving coming up, I love using fall harvest foods in sweet and savory ways. Food bloggers have been coming up with some delicious looking things- miso, tahini GF waffles- COUNT ME IN!

To create my own little far harvest food, I decided to bake up a gluten free sweet potato bread having in mind that I wanted to make some french toast outta it. All I can say it- DO IT.

Enjoy and take some time over the weekend to bake and bit- I promise it's super cathartic and you get something delicious in the end!
