Healthier Shepherds Pie

Healthier Shepherds Pie

In my journey to eating healthier, I occasionally want something a little more substantial to eat that allows me to satisfy that craving while maintaining some type of balance. This healthier version of shepherd’s pies is one of my favorite go-to recipes, plus i get lots of leftovers. This dish freezes well so if you want to bake up a batch and freeze some, it makes a great grab and go meal prep!
