My Favorite Pregnancy Dinner: Veggie Filled Shepherds Pie with Cauliflower Mash @EclecticEveryday

Summer is in full swing and we’ve been enjoying the beautiful sunny weather everyday. It’s so much fun to spend time with the kids outside in the pool and at the park during the summer. Our days have still been full of lots of activities like summer camps and play dates so dinner time can be a little hectic.

I love to make vegetable filled dinners like this yummy Shepherds Pie for dinner. This is so easy and the kids love it. I’ve added lots of chopped vegetables to the lean ground turkey filling and instead of topping it with mashed potatoes, I topped it with creamy mashed cauliflower. It’s so delicious!

I have tried so many fad diets, but I’ve learned that the most beneficial diet is just a simple healthy diet based on common sense paired with high quality vitamin supplements. By using myplate.org, I can easily see how many vitamins and minerals I intake everyday. For me, I always came up a little short on something, and that’s where Nature Made® Prenatal Multi + DHA (200mg) 150ct. softgels from Sam’s Club are so beneficial.

I shared last December that we were making healthier choices in preparation to add an additional family member to our little family. We increased our activity, made better food choices, cut down on salt and sugar and increased our intake of nutritionally dense foods.

To ensure a happy and healthy pregnancy, I’ve been eating as healthy as possible everyday, participating in light physical activity and taking Nature Made® Prenatal Multi + DHA (200mg) 150ct. softgels.
