Seven Days of New Year—Day One!

OK—so now we’re all done with the festive celebrations and it’s time to get back to some good healthy eating—no dieting just simple healthy food. Over the next seven days we’re bringing you seven great recipes to start your new regime and get over the festive food binge, and, as well as the salads, fish, and greens, we’ve included healthy burgers, pizza, and hot dogs!  So you can still eat naughty, but nice.

We’re kicking off with a great recipe for yummy chicken and avocado burger. So let’s go!  And don’t forget you can also check us out on FB, Instagram, and Twitter.

Day 1: Healthy chicken and avocado burger—makes four burgers


Chicken fillet burger

What you need: Four GF or whole-grain burger buns, one whole chicken fillet cut into four, one ripe avocado, lettuce, low-fat aioli or peri mayonnaise, and half small lemon.

What you do: Heat oven to 220 degrees celcius. Cover an oven tray with foil and bake the fillets for 10 minutes, then turn and bake a further 10 minutes. If they need a few more minutes, turn the oven off and check after five minutes. Split the buns and spread with either the aioli or mayo and add lettuce and chicken fillet. Sprinkle the sliced avocado with a little lemon juice and pop the rest of the bun on the top. Serve with a small green side salad and use low-fat dressing, or make your own with a little oil and lemon juice.

And it’s super easy to substitute the chicken for either a salmon or white fish fillet.


Salmon burger

Fish fillet substitute: Follow the instructions for chicken and place skin side down on the foiled line tray and bake for 15 minutes. If they need a few more minutes cover the fillets with foil to stop them drying out, turn the oven off, and leave a further five minutes if necessary.

Burgers are Back!

Burgers are Back—and Healthy!

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.
