Shepherds Pie Recipe

Posted on January 6, 2016 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)

After 2 days of rain I am welcoming the spurts of sunshine and warmer temps despite the winds!  So as I posted on Instagram I had never eaten or made Shepherds Pie but it was something I was interested in trying.  Something new for us to try - which I am making it one of my resolutions to make more of a variety of home cooked meals.  I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I figured it was worth a shot - I loved it to say the least (and it even tasted good as leftovers)!  I am a crock pot junkie (I have 3 of them LOL) and find that many times it is so much easier to use my crocks to make meals because I am able to basically put the ingredients in and not have to stand over the stove or oven (and they are a savior in the summer time)!  Now, I knew it required meat, veggies and mashed potatoes.  That was about the extent of what I knew about Shepherds Pie.  So I pulled out one of my trusty crocks and put about 2 pounds of grass fed beef in, some dried minced onions, turmeric and ginger powder (I add these 2 spices to just about everything I cook), about 1 cup of water, and a about 8 splashes of Worcestershire sauce (you can buy what I use here - affiliate link), and some Himalayan salt (You can buy the kind I use here - affiliate link).  I let the meat cook throughly and once the meat was cooked I added a 16oz. bag of organic mixed vegetables to the meat.  Then I cut and cooked about 7 organic potatoes and when they were done I mashed them, added some grass fed butter, milk, some Himalayan salt, cheese, and parsley.  Once the mashed potatoes were finished I scooped by spoonfuls on top of the meat and vegetable mixture and allowed it to cook on low.  Whether it would be considered Shepherds Pie, I don't know but for not having knowledge on how to make it and never eating it - this was yummy!  Something I will definitely make again!  If you decide to give it a try, drop me a line or comment on how it was!  I would love to hear about it!  Coach Michele

Happy New Year 2016!!

Sunday January 3, 2016  by Coach Michele

Good morning and I hope everyone has had a safe and Happy New Year ringing in 2016!  We chilled and watched the ball drop back east in NYC (as I always grew up watching that as my part of ringing in the New Year, regardless of where my location was).  I was able to sit back and do some reflecting before and after.  One of the things I found myself thinking about was how despite the trials and tribulations (current and past) my family made it through the rough patches.  It was tough but we did it, and are still managing to continue to trudge through these current ones that are ongoing.  So I am making it a point to really focus not only on my family (as I continue to always do), but really start to work on my business (and yes still going to school)!  I know, it sounds tiring already right?  LOL  One of the things I want to share from 2015 is my piece with Coach Omar and The Wellness Ultimatum where I was a guest on his show.  You can check it out here from Coach Omar's tweet: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly of Weight Loss Surgery on Thewellnessultimatum will air 09/19. #BlogTalkRadio #BeWellLifestyleLLC .  The show gives a nice background regarding my decision of having gastric bypass surgery (which will be 8 years on January 23rd (2008 )).  While having the surgery was a life changing decision, I had no idea that there was such a thing as having a coach, reading labels, etc.  It took nearly 4 years for me to realize that aspect and how those things were so vital to health and wellness.  I began to watch documentaries, do more of my own research and went back to school (and am in the process of pursuing my Bachelor's in Integrative Health as I have now changed to that major).  Ironically, with the research and schooling my kids have had things pop up in school regarding GMOs... guess Mom was able to help with that!  I look forward to working on blogs/articles each day and really putting more into my business this year... a new year with positivity - 2016!  While my family and I spent the first 2 days of the new year relaxing, today we began the day by taking down weights and blood pressures.  I downloaded My Fitness Pal and Runtastic apps on my phone (considering my vehicle works when it wants to - hence I tend to walk most everywhere if it's within a reasonable distance and I don't have to get a lot of items).  I'm looking forward to getting word out about Be Well Lifestyle LLC and what I do.  Happy New Year to all!  Coach Michele

Happy New Year (Resolutions)!

Posted on January 1, 2015 at 8:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Welcome and Happy New Year 2015!  Hard to believe another year has passed us by!  At least for me it has probably because I've been busy with school, house chores, business papers/work, etc. etc.  I don'tknow about you, but I am looking forward to a new start.  Now that my business is finally heading in a forward motion, it feels good instead of the hurry up and wait feeling.  It is the first of the month, and yet I found myself not able to take a moment to sit and write what I felt I needed to in order to get 2015 somewhat organized.  And when I say organized, it means my way of being organized (hence no one else can figure out where I have things filed except me lol)! Along with my resolutions I need to write (and my book!), I want to try (notice I said TRY lol) to blog about something each day - no matter what it is!  So to make this short and get a move on the stuff I didn't get to today, I want to wish you all a Happy New Year!!  8)  ~~MJ
