If you know me, you’ll know that I love to cook and also meal prep. Every Sunday is my meal prep day where I make breakfast and lunches for the week, those few hours spent on a Sunday in the kitchen gets me ready for the week!
I’ve been on my fitness journey for quite some time, and as I lift weights I need to ensure I’m eating the right foods to help my muscles recover. I am a massive foodie and really look forward to eating. I’m not about having bland food and am always using seasonings to add plenty of flavour. That’s when packet mixes like Schwartz’s range come in handy!
Shepherd’s Pie usually consists of lamb mince, onions, carrots, frozen peas and topped with mash. However, the Schwartz mix also goes well with beef mince, and getting your hands on 5% lamb mince is a pretty hard task!
I try to squeeze in as many veggies as I can into my lunches to make sure I get my five a day. So, when making this recipe I added in a lot of other veggies, which helps to fill the meal out and make it the perfect meal to get me through the rest of the day. I opted for carrot, red onion, courgette, sweet red pepper and mushroom to go alongside my beef mince!
Honestly, this is the tastiest Shepherd’s Pie! I’m all about adding plenty of spices and herbs to my meals to make them as tasty as possible. I usually use Schwartz’s normal seasonings, but the recipe mix’s make it even easier for you to make a yummy and healthy meal.
The recipe makes four, meaning I have four delicious lunches for my work week, which I can easily pop into the microwave at lunch for a few minutes. Recipes like this are great during the winter, ensuring you have a hearty meal!
Have you got any go-to recipes you have for lunches? Let me know in the comments, I’m always looking for new meal prep ideas!
