A hearty and healthy dinner – lots of volume from the fibrous veggies and big jacket. Make the Chicken and the prebiotic veggies the primary part of the plate, and add as much Sweet Potato and Goats Cheese as your calorie budget / appetite allow. The Goats cheese and chives adds a strong punch of flavour to the meal. Drop it down to one chicken breast and a 300 sweet potato and you will reduce the meal by 442 calories.

Sweet Potato offers a nice hit of vitamin A, C, Copper, K & B6, plus has a lower blood sugar response than white potato. Chicken offer great sources of healthy protein. Leeks and Broccoli are great prebiotics, meaning they are food for the good bacteria in your gut, plus because of the fibre content they help with good bowel movement, feeling full and not all their calories are absorbed. Goats milk is easier to digest, has fewer allergenic proteins and causes less inflammation compared to over-farmed cows milk.
