Two casseroles for meal prep this week made for a quick day in the kitchen! I altered some of the ingredient amounts in this recipe, which I indicated in parentheses below, but that was just so I had enough protein and carbohydrates across all six meals I was prepping for. Most people do not need 5lbs of sweet potato, however I do and that is why my casserole has a large layer of sweet potato mash. If you don't have a potato masher you can always roast your sweet potatoes in the oven then peel and transfer to a food processor to make the mash. For veggies I picked up a bag of frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots and ended up using the whole bag. Also, I usually hate the excesss liquid when transferring to the casserole dish, but I listened to the directions and kept it and I'm really glad I did. The casserole held together and turned out so flavorful and delicious! This was super easy to prepare and even easier to devour. If you have any questions about the portions or about changing ingredient amounts I'd be glad to help you out!

About the veggies: you can use your favorite combo of frozen veggies. The original recipe used a mix of corn, peas and bell peppers (technically not paleo). I suggest using carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, or peppers.
