HAMBURGERS THE HEALTHY WAY

For most families Friday night is associated with junk food night, but this can easily undo all your hard work that week. So a little bit of planning and consideration you can still have your burger and eat it too. Today I am sharing an alternative to Hungry Jacks cravings.IMG_6408

HOW TO MAKE A HEALTHY BURGER

Using 500g lean mince (can be beef, chicken or turkey shape into patties, all I add is chia seeds to sneak in some Omega 3 fatty acids for growing brains)

Wholemeal English Muffins in place of white buns

Tomato, Lettuce, Avocado

Greek Yoghurt in place of mayo

Low fat cheese

Pop it all together and you have a healthy burger that will taste great and won’t leave you with burger belly after you eat it. You can also make sweet potato fries by chopping up sweet potatoes spray with olive oil and bake in the over for 20 minutes. Yummy healthy meal right there and you have saved yourself from Friday Fright Night.

PAY IT FORWARD FITBIT GIVEAWAY

Another awesome chance for you to win a great prize as part of my partnership with Fitness First. This time they are helping me to pay it forward by giving two lucky readers the boost to reach their fitness goals for 2014. Keep reading to find out more.

Just recently I heard about the new gadget Fitbit it sounded pretty awesome so I got myself one to try it out. Basically it is a wrist band you wear that tracks your activity and your sleep. You take out the device inside the band and pop it into the USB cable it comes with to upload the data it has collected. It shows you the following:

  • The amount and level of activity you have or have not achieved each day.
  • The amount of steps you have taken each day.
  • The amount of calories you have burnt each day.
  • The amount of sleep you got each night.Fitbit Giveaway

You can event take one step further and track your calories in and water consumption on the website. It is really a great tool for accountability and it is quite surprising to see just how much or how little you have done each day. Or more importantly just how little quality sleep you are getting each night, it tracks if and when you are restless and how many times a night you woke up.

I have mine set for a goal of 10,000 steps each day. Some days I make it by 11am just doing normal day to day things other days I hardly reach 4,000 due to sitting at a desk for those days. So it has really been quite eye opening especially how I seldom get 8 hours sleep at night, something I am now working on improving.

HOW TO ENTER

1. Like My Facebook Page

2. Tag a Friend on my Facebook Page

3. Share the giveaway on Facebook

You must do all three things to be in the running.

Winner will be announced on Facebook on Sunday 27July2014, winner will be notified by Facebook so be sure to check back in.

CHOC BANANA PEANUT BUTTER BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE

Breakfast is really the most important meal of the day from an elite athlete to a Mum on the run. You have to make time each day to have a quick breakfast as you really are breaking the fast that has been you not eating all night. Having a healthy breakfast is also a great idea as you are most receptive to nutrients in the morning after the big nights fast.smoothie

If you don’t have time to sit and eat make a breakfast smoothie to drink on the run. I love having chocolate, banana and peanut butter smoothies in a water bottle and drinking them on the way to school drop off.

HOW I MAKE IT

1 Banana

1 Cup Soy Milk (can use cows/almond)

2 Table Spoons Cacao Powder (basically raw unprocessed chocolate)  

1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder

1 Heaped Scoop Natural Peanut Butter (Must be Natural ie just peanuts no butter)

Blend all these ingredients together to end up with a chocolaty amazing smoothie that is packed full of protein, magnesium, antioxidants, vitamin E and iron. This is really a healthy easy start to the day and I promise it tastes amazing. Try it tomorrow, all the ingredients can be bought at your local Supermarket or Health Food store.
