The trick to leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle (as opposed to being on a restrictive diet) is to still allow yourself your favourite foods, but with real ingredients that still tantalize your taste buds.
Our FitChef culture is to support, encourage and motivate you in your quest to choose the healthiest foods possible. You can now enjoy your favourite weekend spoils while still adding to your health with burgers, pizzas and guilt-free snacks with FridayNite from FitChef.
Better Bun Burgers
For a spoil with a health difference, try the FitChef Burger Kits made with 60 hour fermented sourdough buns.
Top your bun with cheese slices from the Dairy Aisle and add some healthy fats with Smashed Avo. Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (called oleic acid) and antioxidants like carotenoids, tocopherols, and polyphenols.
A 2013 study showed beneficial anti-inflammatory and vascular health effects when avocado was eaten with a hamburger patty.
You Wanna Pizza Me?
In America, 350 slices of pizza are eaten every second. Made with a sourdough base, the FitChef Pizza Kits are your answer to the whole family’s Friday night cheat food.
Sneak in extra vegetables by serving with a large side salad or topping with added roast butternut or stir-fry from the Vegetable Aisle.
Snacking is a great way to help control your appetite between main meals and might help overeating at the next main meal.
The problem is that our culture of snacking on unhealthy, high energy foods means snacking may contribute up to one-third of your total daily energy intake.
But when we talk snacks at FitChef we’re referring to healthy, guilt-free snacks of the whole, real foods that are high in protein, fibre and healthy fats to keep you fuller for longer, while satisfying the craving.
The best food to conquer a craving is the food that you are craving. The word cheat has a culturally negative connotation, often associated with feelings of guilt.
It is an important and powerful skill to enjoy your favourite treat foods guilt-free. Enjoy our guilt-free grass-fed lean Biltong Slices if you’re longing for savoury snacks or try the Pine Nibbles to satisfy your sweet tooth with natural sweetness from the goodness of fruit.
