You can also enjoy delicious chicken patties when you are on a healthy lifestyle with this super easy recipe. No special seasoning or ingredients needed – just something you may already have on hand.
Since I’ve been doing this Whole30 thing, I haven’t experienced bad cravings. Well, if you’d count wanting to eat potatoes with Cajun seasoning and tahini sauce every single day, then OK – I did crave… something good! When looking at my Instagram feed or Pinterest, I still get those sparkling eyes when I see anything chocolate or that melty ice cream, but the urge of wanting to eat them ASAP is not present anymore. Unlike before, when I see brownies, I feel that I NEED TO EAT THAT NOW! Maybe it is really true that sugar makes you crave.
One of the things I’d love to do just before I started this Whole30 thing – make my own burger. I want my burger homemade – buns, mayonnaise, ketchup, pickled veggies, patties and everything I can do at home. It sounds like a lot of work, but I bet they will turn into something really delicious. Bread is a big NO NO when it comes to Whole30, though I can still make my own patties.These chicken patties are super easy to do – you can just mix everything in a bowl or food processor and you are ready to grill/fry them. Since I haven’t made ketchup and mayonnaise, I did serve this with tahini-harissa sauce. Yes, you got that right. Everything with tahini-harissa sauce is delicious! I wrapped the patties with lettuce and they were perfect!
