Healthy man friendly meat pie

This delicious man friendly meat pie is a hearty family meal that will most certainly lead the way to dad’s heart (via his stomach of course).  It is also super healthy and perfect addition to a healthy eating plan like our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

The beef is tender and juicy and it is also jam-packed with yummy veggies.  Pair it with a healthy salad and you really can’t go wrong.

Steak Pie

Traditionally a pie isn’t on the menu in a healthy eating plan, but with this recipe you just use one sheet of low fat puff pastry to serve 6 people. Too easy!

Try serving this pie with some steamed beans, corn or peas; or a crispy green salad.
