    I didn’t think I was going to like this, when I first took it out of the microwave. However, I got my teaspoon ready and closed my eyes to ‘the look’ of it. I’m pleased to report I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice taste and it has a bit of substance to it. Lovely.

      Glad you enjoyed it Val!

    Struggled to finish the meal when I made it as a shepherd’s pie as I thought it was vile but have discovered that, by adding only a little water, you can shape it into a burger and then fry it in a non-stick pan, which is much better. I only have it once a week though for a change as I find it to be extremely salty!

      Hi Linda, thanks for your honest review and your Foodpack Hack. Sorry you didn’t like the Shepherd’s Pie as is.

    The smell is terrible, like a hamsters cage! sorry! It tastes OK if you can get past the smell. It’s not for eating near other people.

    Really not one of my favourites. Very fake mutton taste and the kitchen carried the smell for ages. Won’t be ordering again.

    Smelled like goat rather than lamb, tasted a bit better than it smelt and quite peppery I think. It wasn’t for me unfortunately

    Really liked this. It smells like shepherds pie and actually tastes like it too. It can be a bit peppery but I quite like it. It is nice and warming when. It is cold and you want ‘ comfort food’

    • LighterLife Team

      We think so too! Thank you!

    I love this food pack! Nothing bad to say about it!
    I just guess we all have different tastes! I find that your tastes change massively on this programme, what you like at the start is not necessarily what you will like as the weeks pass but this is one of my firm favourites!

    This is the worst thing I have ever eaten. The smell and taste are awful, and it looks dreadful. I couldn’t finish it.
    I would give it a zero, if I could.

    I just couldn’t eat this one at all I was gagging. The smell the taste I just couldn’t eat it.

    Ok wow. I’ve tried similar food packs from other companies and every one has gone in the bin, because it tasted so bad.

    This was such a pleasant surprise.
    Don’t expect perfect Shepherds Pie, but give it a go. I found it smelled good and tasted strongly of lamb – but it was very peppery. Normally that would put me off, but it was stronger on spice than the actual flavour of black pepper.

    I used just 120ml water fresh from the kettle and then nuked for a minute as per instructions and it actually settled into quite a nice ‘soft mash’ consistency.
    Mouth feel is super important to me and this legit felt and tasted like food!
    Bravo Lighter Life

    I actually love the Shepherds pie it was a pleasant surprise after trying Spaghetti Bolognese!

    It is quite peppery but that suits my tastebuds .

    I’m a vegetarian but think it is quite a meaty meal with lots to chew on.

    Mine was more like a thick meaty soup than Shepherds pie but still delicious. I will try adding less water next time.

    This will definitely be my lunch or dinner for the next 12 weeks!

    Not for me sadly. – Nice texture and satisfying to eat at first but then there is a really unpleasant back flavour that I just couldn’t get around no matter how hard I tried!

    Shepherds Pie Soup – don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! – I have been using the Shepherds Pie food packs with 300ml of water to make a meaty style soup. I add the boiling water and microwave for a minute as per the usual instructions and I love it!

    Not my favourite due to peppery taste. Won’t be ready ordering this one. – Was looking forward to this as it smelt lovely but once I started eating it it seemed quite strong on black pepper.

    Mutton Pie? – This is very hearty and filling, but I find the smell – which is far, far closer to mutton than it is to lamb – is very off-putting.

    Main staple – I used lighter life 7 years ago and lost nearly 9 stone, the Shepherd pie is one of the main reasons for coming back as opposed to similar diets out there. The shepherds pie has the ability to make you think you are having something you shouldn’t it really hits the spot!

    Too peppery! – I realise it’s to stop it being bland, but I find this foodpack way too peppery!

    Not fond of Lamb – Hubby and I both disliked this. I am not amazingly fond of Lamb and it tastes very strongly of Lamb, I know, who would have thought Shepards Pie would be tasting of Lamb!

    Easy to prepare – lovely – I thought I’d miss meat on my LighterLife journey but I don’t. This is due to the lovely meaty flavour of the Shepherd’s Pie. It is a hearty meal and so easy to prepare.
