These veggie burgers are a fantastic way to satisfy a burger craving. With the base of the veggie patties coming from sweet potato and other veggies, you’ll be giving your body nutrients while enjoying every second of sinking your teeth into a delicious burger. Pack your burger full of crispy lettuce, salty and sweet tomato slices, creamy avocado, or any other toppings of your choice and enjoy!

“Sweet potatoes: An important glucose and glycogen storage food for the liver. All sweet potatoes and yams are beneficial, even white sweet potatoes. Similar to regular potatoes, they help support almost every function for which the liver is responsible inside our bodies. Sweet potatoes have phytochemical properties that calm heated, angry, stagnant, sluggish, and toxic livers and help prevent spasming. They also offer a range of hormone-balancing phytochemicals for the liver; the liver uses sweet potatoes and yams to regulate and control some of its hormone functions.” – excerpt from Liver Rescue

Veggie Burgers

Ingredients:

Additional topping options:

  • Spinach or lettuce
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • Sliced avocado
  • Ketchup

Directions:

Place a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Add the onions and mushrooms and fry for 2-3 minutes until the onions start to soften. Add the sweet potato, garlic, coconut aminos and tomato paste. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring often, until the sweet potato starts to soften. Add the water add place on the lid. Cook at medium-high heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, until the sweet potato is soft. Add more water if necessary. Remove from heat and cool completely.

Place the sweet potato mixture in a food processor and pulse a couple times until the mixture is smooth but still chunky. Don’t over process. Place in a medium-sized mixing bowl and set aside.

Add the walnuts to the food processor and blend until you get a coarse crumb. Add to the bowl with the sweet potato mixture, followed by the ground flaxseed, smoked paprika and ground cumin. Mix until uniform. The mixture should be firm enough to shape into patties - if not then add more ground flaxseed. Shape into patties.

Refrigerate for 1 hour for a firmer patty, or cook immediately using a non-stick pan for 4-5 minutes at medium-high heat on either side.

To assemble the burgers, place the patties on burger buns and add toppings of your choosing. Serve immediately.

Serves: 4

These crispy baked zucchini fries are the perfect healthy and delicious way to conquer a fried food craving! Coated in chickpea breadcrumbs and spices, these fries have that crunch factor that will both satisfy you and keep you coming back for more!

Zucchini is a highly alkaline food that is one of the mildest and easiest vegetables to digest. Zucchini is a great source of vitamin A, C, & B-complex as well as minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium, and manganese. It is high in fiber and low in calories which makes it a great weight loss food and helps to reduce constipation and bloating.

Zucchini is a fruit that’s helpful for liver hydration. It allows the liver to store micro pockets of water that it can later release back into the bloodstream during moments of chronic dehydration in your life. Zucchini have a mild liver purging effect, allowing the liver to squeeze out poisonous troublemakers safely. It’s also soothing to the intestinal tract walls, pushing out pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, allowing for better absorption of nutrients that can be sent up to the liver. Zucchini is also a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.

Zucchini Fries

Ingredients:

Ketchup

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.

Combine the chickpea breadcrumbs, dried oregano, paprika, garlic powder and sea salt in a small bowl and mix until combined. Set aside.

In another bowl, make the flax egg by combing the ground flaxseeds and unsweetened almond milk. Whisk until uniform. Set aside for at least 5 minutes to thicken.

Dip the zucchini first into the flax egg and then into the breadcrumb mixture, coating it evenly. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the zucchini pieces. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and crispy. Serve immediately.

Serves: 2

Grazing is critical to healing. If your blood sugar drops and your liver’s glucose reserves are low to nonexistent like most people’s are (for more on why this happens and how you can heal, you can read Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease, your adrenals are going to be forced to produce excess adrenaline to compensate—corrosive adrenaline that wears out your adrenals and strains your liver and nervous system. If you're already experiencing a chronic illness or symptom, such as acne, eczema, acid reflux, bloating, weight gain, thyroid problems, diabetes, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, addictions, eating disorders, fibroids, cysts, menstrual pain, migraines, autoimmune conditions, Raynaud’s syndrome, Parkinson’s, endometriosis, hair thinning and loss, an autoimmune condition, or any other chronic illness or symptom, your adrenals need support so unnecessary adrenaline isn't being released that could worsen your symptoms or bring on new ones.

By eating a nourishing snack or meal every one and a half to two hours that contains the right balance of the glucose, sodium and potassium your body needs, you can prevent the blood sugar dips that force your adrenals to fill in and release adrenaline. In turn, you save your adrenals, and also your liver and pancreas and prevent corrosive, toxic adrenaline from causing you more problems. Adrenal snacking on the right foods can put you on the true path to healing.

Watch this video to see ten examples of snacks you can enjoy every one and a half to two hours to support your adrenals every day. They are simple and easy to pack foods so you can take them with you or have them prepared for busy days.
