Ever tried Parsnip Mash? You should! Great thing here is it’s almost the identical texture as potato mash, but has a mild sweetness, delivers more fibre, is a lower calorie option and comes with less of a post-meal crash. The blend of flavours on this Dinner plate is bang on. Succulent Roasted Chicken breasts roasted in a bag, the pickled flavour of the beetroot, the satisfying feel of butter leeks and the tenderness of tender stem Broccoli. Delicious! And pretty low in calories too. If you are after less volume, drop to 1 Chicken Breast, 50g of Leeks, 150g of Parsnips and 10g of Butter, saving you 339 calories.

Chicken offer great sources of healthy lean protein. You get a great portion of indigestible fibre and prebiotic benefits for your guts’ microbiome (i.e. feeding the beneficial bacteria), that come with Broccoli, Leeks and Parsnips. Broccoli brings a good hit of vitamin K, vitamin C, folate (folic acid) and potassium. Parsnips, a close relative to the Carrot, are a good source of vitamin C, folate, and manganese. Beetroot, considered a superfood, is a good source of iron, nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants, in addition to helping lower blood pressure and boost exercise performance.
