Hi everyone, remember those sweet potatoes I shared with you last week? This week I’m making Shepherd's Pie with perfectly cooked sweet potatoes. Shepherd’s pie is one of my all time favorite foods. With the cold weather coming, this will be the perfect comfort food to enjoy in front of the fire on a cold evening and still hit calorie and protein goals.

I’m giving this recipe a 9.5/10

What makes it great? This recipe is packed with protein, veggies and flavor. It’s a healthy approach to a comfort food that still tastes just as good.

What makes it just ok? The prep is a little time consuming and it takes a little while to cook. But it’s totally worth it!

Disclaimer: please track ingredients for yourself! Based on the type of ingredients you pick and number of servings, it could change the nutritional info. See how I made it below.

Ingredients:

About 2lbs ground beef (I used 90% lean beef and 2.4lbs)
1 cup chopped carrots
1 medium onion, chopped
8oz container of mushrooms, diced
2-3 cloves of garlic
8oz can of tomato sauce
6oz can of tomato paste
⅔ cup of water
2tbsp worcestershire sauce
½ tbsp white vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

Cooked sweet potatoes

1. Cook the sweet potatoes. You can cook them in the microwave, oven or use the crockpot method I shared last week.

2. Heat a large skillet, I used one with some depth to it, on medium high heat. Add the meat and break into small pieces. When the meat is pretty much done, add onion, garlic, carrots, and mushrooms. Mix.

3. Reduce heat to medium and add vinegar, worcestershire, tomato paste, tomato sauce and water. Mix well.

4. Add salt and pepper. I added a little at a time and tasted it along the way. Be cautious with the salt. There are ingredients in this recipe, such as worcestershire sauce, that have a decent amount of salt in them already.
Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until carrots are tender, about 20-30 minutes.

Check out the pictures below to see the nutrition facts for this recipe with and without the sweet potatoes.

This looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it!

I use ground turkey in mine, with chicken or turkey broth, sage and thyme instead of the Worcestershire and vinegar. I also make a vegetarian version for my husband. Thanks for reminding me of shepherd's pie!

Nutrition Basics: How far are you willing to go for your goals?

Whether its weight loss, financial, personal, professional or whatever, how far are you willing to go to accomplish your goals? Are you willing to make the sacrifices? Are you willing to delay the instant gratification for the long-term success? Are you willing to put in the hours? Everyone says they are, but few actually follow through. Which type of person are you?

We started our 12-month opportunity challenge in January 2019, and we are left with 105 days to complete all the things we put on our Vision Boards. How many things have you accomplished? What is still left to do? I’ll start the sharing:

1. I passed my Strong First Certification
2. I deferred my Spartan Race until 2020 due to injuries
3. I moved all my long-term investments to Charles Schwab
4. I competed in my 1st barrel racing event
5. I booked my trip to Quebec this December
6. I am test driving cars tomorrow
7. I haven’t perused my R + F as much as I wanted, but I still have 105 days.

We asked you to participate in this challenge because goal setting is only ONE part of the equation. It’s not enough to put pretty pictures on a board, you have to take ACTION. Action is what leads to success. What action steps have you taken towards your goals? What goals need to be adjusted? What new goals were discovered? Sometimes we need to evaluate those goals and make changes. And that’s OKAY! Keep taking action, or in the words of Dori, “keep on swimming, swimming, swimming!”

Please share the good, the bad and the ugly. Let us know how we can help you finish the year off strong.

Until Saturday, make good choices!

The Sanddune is an awesome tool to have in they gym.

In this video you’ll see one of our clients doing a Sanddune Run. This running variation is a great way to decrease the amount of impact on joints, specifically the knees.

There’s always a way to work around an injury or pain. So remember keep moving!!
