Tasty Salmon Burgers [Recipe]

You guys this is such a yummy way to eat salmon! I tend to not do anything too exciting with my salmon – grilling it and throwing some guacamole on top is about as creative I get! Seriously though salmon + guac is a heavenly combo! 😋 Why is that when something is produced in the shape of a patty it automatically tastes 10 times better? I don’t know the answer to that but I do know that this burger recipe made plain old grilled salmon taste anything but plain and old!

Alright so it’s not the most macro-friendly of breakfasts out there but darn it, it does taste good!

Chicken Tortilla Soup [Recipe]

They say chicken soup is good for the soul well I disagree. It’s not good it’s GREAT!!! When my mum was visiting recently I tried to find some ways that I could sneak extra protein into her meals. She doesn’t like to eat a lot in one go and enjoys soup so I picked up two cartons of Kirkland Signature Chicken Tortilla Soup from Costco. I couldn’t believe the macros! 1 cup (240g) yielded 11g of protein, and just 12g carbs and 3g of fat! I couldn’t resist having a bowl myself and serving it with a side of buttered toast. Mmmm so yummy and so comforting!

It might be true that no good story ever started with someone eating a salad, but just because salad stories might be boring, that doesn’t mean that they have to taste that way! We’ve been taking a lot lately about how to maintain and quantify that 80/20 balance with your nutrition. We’re 100% on board with the savvy advice from our friend EC at Optimized Nutrition, that 800g a day of fruit and veg is a good target for most adults to shoot for – some may need more, some a little less depending on your overall caloric intake.

Sweet Potato Pork Fried Rice [Recipe]

Making “rice” substitutes out of vegetables is all the rage right now! Not only is it a great way to get your veggies in and keep your carb macros in check, but it makes your meals that much more satisfying as you can invariably have a whole lot more! At least I know that whenever I measure out a portion of rice it always looks depressingly small in respect to its carb content.
