Every other week, Los Angeles–based certified holistic nutritionist, wellness expert, and health coach Kelly LeVeque of Be Well by Kelly brings us a new installment in her #FabFourin15 series. Quick and easy #FabFourin15 meals turn off hunger hormones, squelch inflammation, and provide the body with the perfect complete meal of essential nutrients. The Fab Four are protein to up collagen, muscle tone, and metabolism; fat to benefit hormones, skin, and cellular health; fiber for gut microbiome and detoxification; and greens for phytonutrients.
Shepherd’s pie reminds me of home and is my favorite comfort food. I swap beef for bison because it’s always grass-fed and contains high omega-3 content. Lower in calories, fat, and cholesterol than chicken and higher in protein than beef, bison is becoming a new popular substitute. Pasture raised, it’s loaded with iron for healthy cell development. It delivers omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E to keep skin glowing and is a nutrient-dense lean protein that keeps my clients satiated post-workout. Substitute potatoes for cauliflower or fiber for a creamy, healthy mash. Top it off with sliced carrots to get your beta-carotene fix.
Below, learn how to make this recipe that contains all of your essential nutrients and tastes great to boot!
Join us in two weeks for another installment of the #FabFourin15, where LeVeque shows us the simple (and healthy) way to make a cold-weather favorite.
