We had some pork mince that was 5% or less fat so I decided to experiment with some healthy pork burgers for Ben and they went really well.

Budget shopping tips for these burgers
I try to ensure all of the recipes I make are accessible for everyone. By this, I mean that they do not use obscure hard to find ingredients. I also believe that recipes should use as few ingredients as possible and avoid expensive ingredients. We would all much rather spend money on holidays than expensive ingredients wouldn’t we?
Buying herbs and spices in bulk is something I really recommend. It can save a lot of money in the long term but also mean you never run out! I find putting them on Amazon subscribe and save helps too!
Shopping around to see which shops have offers on your usual products can make a big difference to your weekly shopping bill. Additionally don’t forget to check out the yellow sticker reductions and freeze what you can.
Keep an eye out for reduced pork mince to put in the freezer and make into these burgers to save even more money!
Frozen vegetables are nutritionally just as good as fresh usually so do keep an eye for those too to save money. Do you have any particular frozen vegetables you love? This recipe works just as well with frozen and defrosted onions if you prefer. Do share them with me it is always nice to hear of people’s recommendations.
Why you need vegetables to lose weight
Everyone knows vegetables are good for you, don’t they? They are healthy and filling for very few calories!
The best vegetables are those with low-calorie density. Basically, we are talking about healthier vegetables – potatoes don’t count but butternut squash is much healthier for example!
This means if you eat 100g of spinach, for example, it is just 23 calories and obviously, 100g of anything would fill you up significantly. On the other hand, 100g of crisps, which would be just as filling, is around 536 calories!

Yes, this can be just as easily made with beef mince if you prefer. It really is a great way to get children to try new things and make something themselves.
