How are you guys? It’s been about one week that I am here in São Paulo (the biggest city in South American) with my husband and my baby boy visiting some old friend and few members of my family. We are having a good time because this city has a lot to offer. We already visited parks, shopping malls, friends and family. This weekend we are going to the biggest exposition in South American about The Beatles and I am very excited about it because I’m a huge fan of this British band. Also, we’re going to visit a very close friend of mine which I haven’t seen her for over 5 years. OMG… I CAN’T WAIT!!

Here in Sampa (this is the cute way people from São Paulo call the city) we’re staying in a house that has a spectacular kitchen and of course I’m cooking a lot. I love how much counter top space this kitchen has. It’s great to chop all the veggies and make salads.  Of course we’re going to some cool restaurants around the town too. But when you have a small child, it’s not very easy to eat out a lot. Also, I prefer to make his fresh and homemade food because I know what exactly is eating.

And talking about homemade food, what about making this Sweet Potato Zucchini Casserole for dinner today? I can give you many reasons to convince you this is the perfect dinner during your busy week. The first reasons: it’s very easy to make. I know I always say that, but it’s true. What you have to do is to slice the sweet potato, cut the zucchini in cubes, sauté them in olive oil and then cook the ground turkey until it’s no longer pink. And finally you assemble it in a baking casserole and bake it for about 25 minutes. Now, tell me if it isn’t easy to make?
The second reason is: you’ll need only one pan to sauté the zucchini and cook the meat and a baking casserole. So, this recipe’s also perfect for those days that you don’t have time to clean up your kitchen after cooking. You’ll have a complete meal with healthy carbs, protein, vitamins and nutrients inside of only one dish. Great! And if those two reasons are not enough to convince you to make this dish what about if I tell you this recipe is incredible flavourful, gluten-free and a low-carb recipe? Awesome, right?  Definitely, this healthy Sweet Potato Zucchini Casserole recipe is diet-friendly and delicious. Hope you enjoy this recipes and make it for your family 😉
