parsnip might look like the lit­tle-loved off­spring of a car­rot and a potato, but when it comes to fat loss, it trumps both. The rea­son? Fi­bre. Be­cause each one has an im­pres­sive 10g – more than 30% of your RDA – a parsnip-packed meal will help keep you feel­ing full for hours, avoid­ing the urge to snack on fat-stor­ing junk food. Just make sure you cook them from fresh – parsnip crisps might sound ap­peal­ing, but the added sugar in most packs will negate the fi­brous, fat-fight­ing good­ness. The per­cent­age of your vi­ta­min C RDA pro­vided by one parsnip 1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated / 1 large parsnip, grated / 1 red ap­ple, peeled, cored and grated / 1tbsp ar­row­root flour / Salt and pep­per, to taste / 1tbsp co­conut oil

TO MAKE Use a steamer bas­ket to steam the grated sweet potato, parsnip and ap­ple for three min­utes. Re­move from the steamer and gen­tly squeeze to re­move ex­cess mois­ture. Pat the mix­ture dry with pa­per tow­els, add it to the rest of the in­gre­di­ents in a bowl and mix well. Pick up roughly 1tbsp of the mix­ture and squeeze it with your hands to form a hash brown. Heat the oil in a fry­ing pan over a medium-high heat and add your hash browns, flat­ten­ing them with a spat­ula. Cook for two to three min­utes on each side. RECIPE FROM
