  • 2014 and hello
  • 2 diet again, after a brief lapse of just under two weeks, with an odd low
  • 500 calorie fast days again
  • 2 diet recipe, and one that uses leftovers, TURKEY leftovers if you have any kicking about still. It’s my take on a traditional New England recipe for Red Flannel Hash, but minus the eggs and spuds; my VERY low-calorie version is made with turkey mince, (or cooked leftover turkey), beetroot, beans and a tomato – NOT traditional I know, but there is more than an essence of the original New England Fry-Up in my recipe, which is only 260 calories per serving. In the interests of tradition, which I am very keen to uphold in any culture, I have shared an original recipe for Yankee Red Flannel Hash below my healthy and virtuous version, just in case you have family baying for more calories! We BOTH enjoyed this recipe the other day and Malcolm has asked me to cook it again for a feast day, with eggs and spuds next time though. That’s it for today, I have LOTS of great news, new recipes and giveaways to share over the next few days, so keep popping back to see what’s new! Karen
