Homemade Salmon Burgers

Salmon burgers can be really expensive but these come in at only 1.50$ per serving! They have a crispy outside and are really good. You also get the benefit of squeezing in a serving of omega 3’s in burger form!

Recipe: Serves 1

In a bowl, mix together half a container of canned wild salmon, 1 egg white, and a tbsp or 2 of chopped red onion. Add salt, pepper, and garlic salt to taste (optional).

Mash it until it is a somewhat homogenous mush. Take the mush into your hand and form a patty. Place onto a pan that has been sprayed with oil.

Cover with a plate and cook for a couple minutes. Remove plate and flip. Cook until light brown on each side.

To serve, put the patty on a whole wheat bun with ketchup, onions, tomatoes, aguacate, and salt. Enjoy!

Benefits:

Salmon * the Inuit people have a very low rate of heart disease yet they eat a diet that is full of fatty fish, this is because the fatty fish are full of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega 3’s protect against heart disease by lowering the body’s levels of LDL cholesterol!

Onion * have cancer fighting properties, possibly because they increase your body’s production of glutathione-s-transferase. Also contain anti-inflammatory antioxidants and phytochemicals!

Avocado * Has more potassium than banana and is basically pure monounsaturated fat (the good kind)!

Random Tip:

A bowl of cereal for breakfast usually doesn’t tide me over very well. I am hungry like an hour later. I think it might be because of the lack of protein and fat. So, in order to make a bowl of cereal into a viable breakfast, I smear a spoonful of nut butter on the bottom of the bowl before adding the milk and cereal. That way, every bite has a bit of nut buttery goodness. Not only does it take the taste up 1,000,000 levels, but it is way more satiating! A really good combo is Fiber One honey cluster cereal with Nuttzo and Kashi Vive with almond butter. Oh! And Cheerios with chocolate almond butter.

Question: Do you like the new background or should I change it back? And, I was wondering what kind of recipes or posts y’all would like to see. Feel free to comment and let me know :)
