Clean-Eating Shepherds Pie In 6 Easy Steps

Shepherds Pie is one of those warm-up-your-insides dishes. It’s so easy to make, and the ingredients mesh together to unveil this homey goodness. Unfortunately traditional Shepherds Pie isn’t the healthiest thing around. When we started our clean eating lifestyle, husband made some adaptations so we could still enjoy it.

Step 3:

Brown 1-2 lbs of ground turkey. The amount depends on how much you like ground turkey. (You can’t really mess this recipe up.) By brown, I mean cook thoroughly. Make sure all the light pink spots disappear.

Step 4:

Heat up your frozen bag of mixed veggies. You can follow the microwave instructions if they are microwaveable or throw them in a pan until the ice is gone or “knock the frost off” is what Husband told me. Whatever that means, do that.

Step 6:

Grease a deep casserole dish. Fill the whole dish with your avocado turkey veggie mixture, but make sure to leave some room at the top for… the mashed sweet potatoes. When everything is stacked accordingly, place it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Salt to taste when served and enjoy!

Not the prettiest thing to look at, but it sure tastes good. I’m not a dietician, but I consider this super food. The last time Husband made it, I dropped .5-1 lb a day after every day I ate it. This was in addition to exercise and my morning smoothie and a clean lunch. [ More about Clean Eating here ] But, regardless of weight-loss, it’s delicious, clean and so easy to make!
