Some light options for meat include fish, chicken and lean steak cuts. Fattier options include salmon (the healthy kind of fat), pork, lamb, fatty steak cuts and sausages. Choose your meat according to preference, appetite and health goals. A great way to increase the nutritional value is to go ‘naked’ and use a lettuce leaf as an alternative to a bun and load your plate with salad.
Falafel (not deep fried), lentil pattie, grilled halloumi and marinated BBQ tofu strips are a few delicious alternatives to meat.
You can’t go wrong with a simple green salad or coleslaw. These are also great burger toppers however, I would usually add a second, more lavish salad such as roast pumpkin, brown rice or potato salads. The DediKate recipe page is great salad recipes!
