There is a bit of carb loading going on in this week’s menu. The shepherd’s pie uses sweet potato for a lower-carb alternative, and you can always substitute the white potato mash on Sunday’s meal with extra veg. This week we are doubling the Split pea dahl and the meat from the Shepherd’s pie. Remember to portion and freeze the chocolate brownie to stop it tempting you to eat it all at once.
