How are you guys? I’ve been in São Paulo (the biggest city in South American) for about a week with my husband and baby boy visiting some old friend and few family members. 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. I’m a huge Beatles fan. 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 local nickname for São Paulo), we’re staying in a house that has a spectacular kitchen and of course, I’m cooking a lot. I love how much countertop 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 and I prefer to make his fresh and homemade food. Then, I know exactly what we’re 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 into 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 only need one pan to sauté the zucchini, cook the meat, and a casserole dish. So, this recipe is also perfect for those days 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 incredibly flavorful, 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 recipe and make it for your family 😉
