One of my fitness goals is to increase muscle mass and reduce fat percentage. Recently, I decided to go on a low carb meal plan (don’t worry, I have a cheat day in the week where i get to eat WHATEVER I want!) to help increase my strength and fitness.
With some chicken mince on hand, I decided to create some patties. The challenge is to not use breadcrumbs. Using some almond meal and an egg, I was surprised that the mixture actually bind together very well. Using some fresh shitake mushrooms, chill and spring onions as flavouring, the patties turned out moist and fresh.
I think it is a myth that one cannot enjoy food while on a meal plan. Every bite of the chicken patty was enjoyable and tasty. Food is still meant to be delicious and not plain I say!! 😉

Mixed everything together. Shape them into patties and pan fry. Easy!
