Clean and lean burgers for lunch? How can you turn down that offer! Every Sunday is meal prep day for me, and each week I research away to find new ideas to give a crack.
This little gem of a recipe was super simple to whip up, didn’t break the bank and aligns with my macros, keeping everything in check. It was a no brainer !
If you are sick and tired of chicken, pork or turkey mince are both absolute winners when it comes to recipes like this one.

What You Need.
500grams Chicken Mince
1 Tbsp Flaxseed Meal
2 Tomatoes, sliced
1 bag of Spinach
1 Onion, sliced
1 Cucumber, sliced
Pineapple half, OR pineapple slices tinned.
(looks for the least amount of sugar depending on branding)
Fetta to top (roughly 25grams per burger)
What You Do.
Season your chicken mince with salt, pepper and any additional seasoning of choice (Taco /Burrito dry seasons work well) and add in your flaxseed meal.
In a medium pan heat a small dollop of coconut oil
Slice up your onion, cucumber and tomato.
Roughly break up your mince into 5 even 100gram portions, roll into patties and place in pan.
Flip burgers and cook through, roughly 10 – 15 minutes
Take off heat and let the burger cool on a paper towel
Place your sliced onions and five pineapple slices into your pan and cook until both are golden brown.
Lastly crack and fry your eggs, sunny side up is always a winner!
Lay down your 1 cup of Spinach per serve, a 1/4 cup of your sliced cucumber, 2 slices of tomato. Finish with roughly 1/4 cup of cooked onions and top with your chicken burger, pineapple slice and fried egg.
Sprinkle with fetta and dig on in!
I adore recipes that only involve one pan, so be sure to keep it simple where possible!
Burgers whilst clean eating isn’t always the easiest, so I would love to know if you decide to give it a crack yourselves whilst training and focusing on your own fitness goals.
