Low GI Cottage Pie Recipe



Can you burn fat with comfort food? If you use our cottage pie recipe, which has a 65% lower GI, then yes you can!

It’s the carbs that kill your fitness in this winter favourite. A big slab of cheesy mashed spuds slathered onto fatty beef adds more than 1 876 kilojoules and gives a GI rating of 74, according to sports nutritionist Caroline Farrell.

By blending sweet potato and cauliflower in place of the mash, you lower the GI rating to less than 45, meaning you avoid the blood-sugar crash. And by shaving roughly a third of the kilojoule count, you can justify going back for seconds, maybe thirds.
