Nutrition for Runners: Ground Turkey Shepherd’s Pie

Tonight’s recipe is a healthier version of a classic comfort food. It is the second recipe I’ve tried from the Feedzone Fast and Flavourful for Athletes Cookbook I received for Christmas last year. 

This is not a complicated recipe. The longest part of it was boiling the potatoes so I could mash them. Once that was done the rest was preparation was quick. 

Shepherd’s pie is generally one of my favourite meals and I like it the way my mom used to make it with just meat, creamed corn and potatoes. My 7 year old had reservations about it for the same reasons when she found out what I was making. 

This recipe won both of us over. We will definitely be adding it to our rotation again.
