Burgers are Back!

Burgers are Back—and Healthy!

By Emma


Yes! Burgers can be healthy! Well, in reality as healthy as you make them. Our LFW burgers are organic and lean, vegetarian, chicken and fish and we use whole fillets not shredded or mashed with other ingredients.  As a Paleo I go ‘naked burger’ ie, no bun, but you can use GF buns or wholegrain if you prefer. Best GF wholegrain buns are either DEEKS (Dickson and Pearce) or delish PURE BRED rolls from your local Coles or Woolworths supermarkets—our GF team stumbled across these when in Sydney with no DEEKS in sight and they’re terrific!

You can use a meat patty (recipe below), a nice lean chicken or salmon fillet, veggie patty, and your favourite salad fillings. Top it off with aioli or our home-made guacamole or salsa sauce*. You can also ring the changes on your meat or veggie patty by including mixed spices such as Moroccan, Indian, or Australian bush spices and conserves.

LFW—Eating healthy for 2015!

It’s 2015 and time for those New Year resolutions that we never keep beyond about a week … but this year LFW is focussing on healthy eating—that doesn’t mean dieting peeps, it just means watching what we eat.

So we’re kicking off with a couple of great ideas for breads, cakes and sweet treats! Enjoy!
