Why eat the vegan Asian BurgerFit Burger?

Snap peas and bok choy are two vegetables many people wouldn’t eat solo…But mixed into this burger, they provide a variety of vitamins and minerals, including iron and folate. Both vegetables also add fiber to assist with digestive health. Studies have shown that many people do not consume enough fiber, so eating this burger can help you get more of this important nutrient. Coconut aminos is a great substitute for soy sauce, which is higher in sodium and off limits for people with soy and/or gluten allergies or sensitivities.

Green Mango Coco Salad

This salad is so refreshing and cooling! Inspired by the Thai Papaya Salad, I gave it my healthy twist by balancing flavor and nutrition. Green mangos are a low glycemic fruit high in vitamins C, A and B6. The fiber and enzymes are great for digestion. The herbs in this salad add a boost of antioxidant power, while the coconut provides healthy fats that are burned quickly for energy. This dressing is a perfectly balanced creamy blend of spicy and sweet - if you don't like spicy, simply omit the chile.

    I wanted to make a burger that was a little different and I found this recipe. I use sriracha for hot sauce. I normally vary the amount of hot sauce specially when the kids are home, I have a teenager that doesn’t like anything spicy. If you have fresh snap peas by all means use fresh.

    It was a challenge to find a young coconut so I bought one that has been preserved in a jar at an Asian store. This recipe doesn’t take you but a couple of minutes to prepare. Just make sure that you don’t overdo the lime juice when you are making the dressing.
