Week 1 Day 5

Breakfast: Egg whites + diced potatoes

Lunch: Butternut noodles + beef (leftover)

Dinner: Cottage Pie

Egg whites are a regular breakfast for me, ready in minutes and have a ton a protein to keep me full, especially with hemp hearts on top. If I had busy mornings, I would put the eggs and veggies, etc. together in a mason jar at night so I could just throw it all into a pan in the morning and it would be ready even faster.

The butternut noodles + beef lasted so many days and were just amazing as the first. If you work and have to meal prep on Sunday (or whatever day), that can be your lunch for the week!

Cottage Pie is just like Shepherds Pie, but using beef instead of lamb. I have been making this for a long time so I don’t use a recipe anymore, but you can find a similar one here. The only vegetables I used were carrots and celery, and the spices I used were a little different; you can season how you like. I also didn’t use yeast, I believe in the recipe I linked it is used as a thickener, but I don’t find that to be necessary. Mashed potatoes layered on top of meat and vegetables, then baked in the oven until golden. Comfort food is the only way to go in Winter and this is everything I wanted and needed.
