Week 2: Shepards Pie and Brisket

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly. – Buddha

Week 2 is here and I am ready.  After week 1 behind me, I feel like I am on the right path to being my best and healthiest self!  This week, one of my friends is bringing me lunch 2 days so I am only going to be making 1 meal for myself this week.  I have always been a fan of Shepards Pie, but didn’t know of a way to make it more healthy…that is until I discovered that I LOVE using califlower as a substitue for mashed potatoes.

The plan for this week is to make 6 servings of Shepards Pie with a cheese (dairy-free of course) and califlower topping.  There is just something about grey skies and Shepards Pie that makes my insides feel all good inside!

Besides Shepards Pie, I am going to slow cook some Brisket with banana peppers as well to individual package into 4oz servings and put it in my freezer as a good “emergency” dinner/lunch.  Plus, it is great with eggs!  Other things I love to eat Brisket with is califlower nachos and deconstructed brisket tacos (oh my goodness — my mouth is just salivating thinking of those two things – will definetly have to share my recipes with both of those! #SuperBowl post maybe?!)

Since I am posting this “The Plan” on Tuesday (later than I would have liked) – I am actually going to cook the Shepards Pie and Brisket today and hopefully have “The Reality” post tomorrow!  I am excited to see how it turns out because I have never made Shepards Pie before — worst case, I eat it anyway because I know that it is healthy for me and don’t make it again…but I have a good feeling about this one.
