With the prices rising everywhere, it is hard to eat healthy and stick to a diet. Normally, the healthier a meal, the more ingredients there are and that is more money out of your pocket. I have been on the hunt to find a healthier option for dinners that my toddler will eat and won’t break the bank. This turkey and sweet potato casserole is absolutely perfect and so simple! The whole family loves it and there are so many things you can do to tweak it and make it your own!
