Pumpkin Spiced Apples

9. Pumpkin Spiced Apples: As we mentioned above, we love all things pumpkin spice. There is no limit as to what you can use a pumpkin spice blend in and still have it taste delicious!

Bonus Recipe: Chili

13. Chili: Would it be fall without chili? A true classic, it’s essentially a fall requirement to get chili on the meal plan at least once throughout the season! While a lot of store-bought chilies contains gluten, you can make your own gluten-free and delicious chili at home with our BurgerFit recipe.

We hope these recipes get you ready and excited for fall while staying true to your healthy lifestyle! If you’re looking for more recipes to get your family eating healthier, check out our top paleo burger recipes and 10 burger recipes under 5 Weight Watcher’s points

What They’re Saying

Not your typical burger with fries! I grew up just eating burgers with cheese, ketchup, and mustard alongside some fries...This burger offers more nutritional value while still being delicious to eat with the condiments that I love. A side dish of rosemary potatoes in place of fried french fries made it even better. This dish was a nice change from the average burger and had great flavor.


BurgerFit is a valuable resource to have at my office when talking about improving eating habits with my patients. It shows them that making healthier choices doesn’t mean giving up food that they know and love, and it helps them make the transition toward seeing food as a joyful part of self care, rather than something to feel guilty about.


Wait, these are healthy? If I had known, I wouldn't have eaten them...But they are good, so just don't tell me next time.


Trust me when I tell you these burgers are amazing!
I have had the wonderful opportunity to have them, and oh boy! My five-year-old even loved them. This is not your sneaky cook of the nineties, these are burgers your family will love. I cannot wait for the cookbook to come out so we can incorporate these into our weekly family meals.
