Sweet Potato Salmon Avocado Toast

Serves: 1


Avocado Mash

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 tablespoon Brain Octane Oil or MCT oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced cilantro

Sweet Potato Toast

  • 1 sweet potato, roughly 3.5″ diameter
  • 1 teaspoon grass-fed ghee
  • 1 pasture-raised egg
  • 2 ounces wild-caught salmon
  • 1 tablespoon organic hemp seeds (optional)


  1. Bring 1.5 quarts of water to a boil. Gently place egg in boiling water, cover with lid and set timer for 7 mins. If you prefer a less runny yolk, increase time to 9-10 minutes.
  2. While the egg is cooking, slice sweet potato length-wise with a thickness close to 1/4″ (The thinner the slice, the faster the potato will cook and also the lower the carb content).
  3. Melt ghee in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Place sweet potato in the pan and cover. Cook for 3 minutes per side or until fork tender.
  4. Mash avocado in a bowl until most large chunks are gone.
  5. Add Himalayan pink salt and cilantro to the avocado, top with squeezed lemon and Brain Octane Oil. Stir until creamy.
  6. Place sweet potato on a plate and spread  with avocado.
  7. Remove the egg from boiling water and run cold water over it until it is no longer hot to to the touch. Gently remove the egg from its shell and place on top of your sweet potato and avocado.
  8. Top with salmon and sprinkle with hemp seeds. Drizzle with extra Brain Octane Oil over your avocado toast for an added cognitive boost.
