    If I was to do a red day, I'm aware that a specific weight is given for a jacket potato as a HexB. My question is - can I make that jacket potato into chips (made the slimming world way) and still be "on plan" or is it intended to be eaten as a jacket. Does it make a difference. :confused:

    I'm sure you need to eat the potato with the skin on to make it a HexB because all the fibre is in the skin. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong x

    I was thinking exactly the same thing earlier...I don't do red days very often but am trying a week of red and green to see where it gets me.

    I was thinking of just making them into wedges. I do the following on EE and green (this time will just have to weigh the potato);

    - Cut into wedge shapes (leave skin on).
    - Spray very liberally with fry light, and season with salt and pepper (and anything else you fancy).
    - Chuck in mincrowave for 8 mins, turning after 4 mins.
    - I guess if you want them crispy, you could whack them in the oven for 20 mins.

    Not sure if this is allowed but I don't see why not.

    PS I realise after typing this, I have been watching far too much 'Jamie's 30 Minute Meals' - 'whack', 'chuck' whatever next?!

    Ah - so I CAN chip the potato, but with the skin on i.e. unpeeled? That sounds good, thanks x

    I make my chips leaving the skin on anyway. I find they fall apart if i peel them.
