I found a really good  blog called Paleo on a Budget! This girl really knows how to develop delicious meals on a budget. Who says eating health can’t be affordable.  This week on her blog she has committed to doing the  Whole30 so all the meals this week are Whole30 approved. Check out her blog for some great meal ideas!

Lazy Man Sheppard’s Pie
• 1-2 Sweet Potatoes {Depending on the Size}
• 1lb ground beef
• 1 Medium Onion, Medium Dice
• 2 medium carrots diced medium-fine
• 2 Cloves Garlic, Finely Minced
• 1 Can diced tomatoes
• 1 Medium bag of string beans
• 1/2 tbsp of both Oregano and Basil
• 1 tsp rosemary
• Coconut Oil
• Ghee or Coconut Milk {which ever you prefer in your mashed sweet potatoes}
How to:

  • In a good size pot, fill it with water, cube your sweet potatoes up { somewhat on the smaller side, they’ll cook a bit faster, just make sure the pieces are uniform they cook better that way }. Turn it on high, get them boiling!
  • While that’s going, add some coconut oil to a big pan, and let that get heated while you chop up your onions and carrots, add those both in. When they’ve started to soften add your garlic in. Let that cook up for a few minutes.
  • When that’s all set, add your ground beef and your string beans {I used the steam fresh ones so I just heated them up in the microwave and added it in when the ground beef was almost done cooking}.
  • When you’re ground beef is almost done, add in your spices, salt and Pepper and Diced Tomatoes. At this point I just it turn the pan down to a medium low and let it all just keep cooking while you deal with the sweet potatoes.
  • Check to see if they’re done yet {poke em with a fork or a knife and it should go in easily… just like it would be for regular mashed potatoes}. Drain the potatoes, and mash them up with a fork a bit. Then add in 1/2 – 1 tbsp of ghee or coconut oil {to your taste and the consistency you like}. Add in some salt and pepper.
  • On a plate add some of the ground beef filling, on top of that add your sweet potatoes, and serve!
