Welcome to my Whole 30 life changing Airfryer Veggie Pakoras.

Welcome to my Whole 30 Airfryer Bunless Burgers recipe. Combining some of my favourite foods such as minced beef, avocado, crispy bacon and green beans this is heaven for anyone that is following the Whole 30 challenge.

Burgers….now where do I start? Well maybe that I just can’t live without them. I love to dive into a big juicy burger and I am never more than three weeks without one.

I have sampled them at Planet Hollywood, Hard Rock Café, Wendys and a huge range of other popular places.

And then there are Dominic’s homemade burgers, now they are something special.

They will be filled with melted cheese, have lots of onion, will be really crispy and will be inside one of his homemade burger buns.

But clearly I am not talking healthy Whole 30/Paleo burgers here, but the big bad naughty ones.

Air Fryer Recipes for beginners

However I have always eaten delicious burgers during my Whole 30 and Paleo days. They are rather easy to make.

Clearly you lose the cheese and the bread but pretty much everything else stays. You add a delicious salad, sliced bacon and avocado and you have something special.

You no longer feel like you are missing out and that dream of a big fat juicy burger can still be a reality. Then make it even more healthy by adding some extra vegetables to it like we do.

Even better I am sure you could stay on the Whole 30 indefinitely if you could have burgers cooked in the Airfryer like this everyday!

  • Preheat the Airfryer to 180c.
  • Clean and dice your fresh herbs. Peel, remove the stone and slice the avocado. Peel and dice the red onion. Dice the fresh tomato.
  • In a mixing bowl add the minced beef, 1/5 of the red onion, all the seasonings, the tomato puree and mix well. Make into 4 burger shapes.
  • In the Airfryer place the baking mat at the bottom of the Airfryer.
  • Place the burgers onto the baking sheet and cook in the Airfryer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes toss the green beans in olive oil and place in the Airfryer with the burgers. After a further 5 minutes add the slices of bacon and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Dish up the burgers with the green beans, avocado, bacon and salad garnish.
  • Serve.


I used back bacon for the bacon slices. It is the most lean and much better for when you are on the Whole 30.
Another option is to toss the green beans in coconut butter and cook them first, it gives a totally different flavour and can then be the bed to lay your burgers on.

Whole 30 Day 12

I am back with my day 12 on the Whole 30. The thing I want to discuss today is to not feel like you’re missing out. We often associate diets and healthy eating with rabbit food but there is a lot of amazing classics that you can do, but make them Whole 30 or Paleo compliant.

You could make a fajita with a basic omelette mix, burgers without their buns but loaded with salad, your own KFC takeaway and best of all amazing chicken curries.

Plus if you’re on a diet you end up resenting it, but if you make every meal interesting over your 30 days then there is no reason why you wouldn’t want to continue for longer and longer.

Some people I have chatted to in the past have even followed the Whole 30 for 60 or 90 days and just ended one go and then gone straight onto another.

What I ATE On Day TWELVE Of The Whole 30

Today has been a delicious day. Well of course it has been delicious because burgers have been involved!!! Now just because you’re on the Whole 30 doesn’t mean you can’t have burgers and this is how burgers are eaten Portuguese style. They never come with buns and have big signs on  the menu saying so in case they offend American visitors. They normally come with a fried egg, fries and salad and taste amazing. And this is our take on them for a Whole 30 day!

Breakfast = Pepper Omelette

Lunch = Bunless Burgers

Dinner = Thai Veggie Curry

Exercise = 5km Country Walk/Run

For breakfast I am starting the day again with my pepper omelette. It’s a great option for if you exercise like me and are not a big breakfast fan.

Lunch = these bunless burgers because they are so good and are perfect for a Whole 30 meal. Then you could serve them with more salad if you wish, baked vegetables or whatever you are in the mood for.

Then for dinner we have a Thai veggie curry. This is something I have all the time during my Whole 30 because it is so simple. A few herbs and spices, with a can of coconut milk along with seasonal vegetables. What is there not to love about it? Plus it is bursting with healthy vegetables.
