Burgers on burgers on burgers! I love burgers! The funny, or maybe not so funny, part about this is that when I was pregnant I couldn’t even smell a burger without wanting to gag. Like why?!?! In-N-Out burgers in particular. I love burgers so this was super out of the ordinary for me. It wasn’t until almost a year after I had my son that I finally wanted a burger again. Since then I’ve been back on track with my love for burgers! These chicken veggie patties were kind of a quick throw together meal prep that I didn’t think was going to be that great but they turned out awesome!
The KitchenAid made the prep on these a breeze and I think that I’m going to bake the next batch as well. They were so juicy and full of flavor on top of that fact that they were packed with veggies and low in fat. Eating healthy can be so easy once you’ve gotten used to making some simple swaps. I’ll use ground chicken, turkey, or beef as long as it’s lower in fat. I always thought that protein was just protein until I started really paying attention to labels. Some of these protein sources have upwards of 20 grams of fat! That is basically one third of my total fat intake for the day. If I had two servings, which I can easily do, I’d have taken in more than half of my daily fats. That’s crazy to think about! Chicken veggie patties are packed with veggies and protein but low in fat.
Alright, so what’s the secret to easy meal prep or dinners? Short cuts! One of my favorite short cuts is buying veggies that are already chopped, cut, or prepared. If I don’t have to waste any time doing this it really cuts down on prep time, making evenings a lot less stressful. One of my favorite things to buy is riced cauliflower. There are so many different uses for it and I can easily go through a bag in a week. I used to spend so much time making my own before it was readily available. Not only did it take a ton of time to prepare but it was also a huge mess. I’d find bits and pieces of cauliflower all over the kitchen days after I’d riced the cauliflower. The only good part was that I felt like a got a solid arm workout when I was done. Ha! All jokes aside though, being able to buy riced cauliflower is so much better than having to do it yourself!
Ever since finding the riced cauliflower hash, I’ve been using it for all sorts of things. It’s a medley of cauliflower, broccoli, carrot, and green onion and adds a ton of flavor to every meal. Let me know what your favorite grocery store hacks are? Anything that can make dinner easy, less timely to make, and easier clean up is what I want to know about. This just gives me more time to focus on family time or catching up on everyday household chores.Print
