Shepherd Pie Light

Shepherd Pie, a staple in English diets, is traditionally made with cooked lamb and mutton, peas, carrots, potatoes and topped with mashed potatoes.  Cottage Pie is usually made with beef. Both are yummy but high in the carb department.


No need to forgo this treat.  We expand the table, lower the carbs and calories and still have a delicious meal! Use ground chicken, turkey or veal, all a wonderful taste with lower fat than beef. Trade in the mashed potatoes for cauliflower mash, ditch some of the higher carb traditional vegetables for sautéed celery, turnips, steamed broccoli florets, carrots--et voila! A definite addition to our regular favorites.

Read our expand the table tips for inviting vegetarians to share this meal.

Foodie Lit review

Lynnda Pollio's Trusting the Currents

is a book like no other. “I didn't know I

was writing a book. I just started

hearing a Black,Southern woman's

voice guiding me to write down her

words, which were wise and wild. Two

years later, I had the first draft of an

unexpected novel. It took another 8

years of me fighting this story, editing, giving

up, and reconnecting until I finally surrendered to the truth that I was born to bring this book and its wisdom and love into the world.”


Lynnda didn’t know if her book would ever be published and took a leap, publishing it independently. To her surprise, the book went on to win12 literary awards, including the BRAG Medallion.
