1 Put the parsnips and potatoes in a saucepan of boiling water and cook over a high heat for 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain well and mash until smooth. Stir in the carrot, tarragon and 2 tbsp fromage frais, and season to taste.

2 Meanwhile, put the leek, stock and chicken into another saucepan and bring to the boil over a high heat. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the leeks are tender.

3 Preheat your grill to high. Remove the chicken mixture from the heat and stir in the ham hock, mustard, Parmesan and remaining fromage frais. Season to taste and divide between 4 individual pie dishes (or 1 large ovenproof dish). Spoon the mash on top, smooth over with a fork and grill for 5 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Serve with your favourite Speed veg.

Ultimate Slimming Tips!

Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry
If you are hungry you need to eat. Depriving your body of food will just see you miserable and maybe even grabbing the high fat, high sugar foods instead. And that’s really not going to help.

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods 
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way. If you know you have a night out, that’s fine, just plan… What food will you order? What drinks will you order? And stick to your plan for amazing weight losses.
