Healthy Chicken Burger

I’m always trying to make healthy meals and snacks for myself and the family to sustain us through our busy week.  I like making healthy burger patties from either grass fed chicken or beef.  I also make vegetarian versions from a combination of vegetables, tofu and seeds. These burgers are full of complete protein which means they have all the essential amino acids needed to repair the body as well as support your immune system.

CHILLI CON CARNE

CHILLI CON CARNE

It’s a quick, easy one pot meal that’s delicious to eat. In this recipe I’ve used lean grass fed beef that I minced myself in the Thermomix.

The avocado and lime cools and refreshes the palate as you eat it – feel free to double the amount of avo per serving.

What I love about this dish is that it also keeps in the fridge for about 3 days so you can take it to work for lunch the next day. It  freezes well too.

What’s good about it: Lean beef and beans are a great source of protein. Whenever the body is growing, repairing or replacing tissue, protein is involved.

Veggies such as carrot, capsicum and tomato add antioxidants to help nourish and boost your immune system.

Avocado contains the antioxidant vitamin E and it’s also a good mono-unsaturated fat that’s acts as an anti-inflammatory which is perfect after a good training session in the gym.

A touch of chilli  can help spike your metabolic rate and stimulate digestion.
