Ready in 1 hour 50 minutes
1 large baking potato
100g fat-free natural cottage cheese
10g fresh chives, finely chopped
½ tsp onion granules
1 lean gammon steak, visible fat removed
Low-calorie cooking spray
150g broccoli florets
Lemon wedges, to serve
1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Prick the potato all over with a fork and bake for 1½ hours until soft.
2 Split the potato in half and place on a non-stick baking tray. Scoop the flesh out into a bowl, leaving a 0.5cm border around the edges of the potato halves. Season the flesh, then mix with the cottage cheese, chives and onion granules, and spoon back into the skins. Increase the oven temperature to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Cook for 8-10 minutes until the tops are golden.
3 Meanwhile, place a non-stick griddle or frying pan over a medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, spray the gammon with low-calorie cooking spray and fry for 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
4 Boil the broccoli for 3 minutes, then drain. Serve with the gammon and potato skins, and the lemon wedges for squeezing over.

There is a huge list of Free Food to choose from, which doesn’t need to be weighed, calorie counted or measured.
You can also snack on these to satisfy your hunger in between meals.
In addition, you are encouraged to eat measured quantities of certain foods, known as ‘Healthy Extras’ that provide nutrients essential for a healthy, balanced diet.
These include milk and cheese (for calcium) and cereals and wholemeal bread (for fibre and minerals).
And so you never feel deprived you can enjoy limited amounts of treats which are higher-calorie, less filling foods that include chocolate, crisps and alcohol.
