Double The Portion, Half The Guilt, Bangers and Mash Recipe

Because winter.

You have two options, says nutritional scientist Jane Baker: “Use Yukon potatoes [or other waxy potatoes], which are naturally creamy so need no milk or butter, or a mash of swede and carrot. Even a double portion will have nowhere near the glycaemic load, fat content or carbs of normal mash.”

Go with grilled 80% meat sausages and treat yourself to an extra couple.
