Burgers and Fries

Who doesn’t love burgers and fries? I know that I love them. Pack your “brown bag” with this delicious meal and treat yourself at work.

Sometimes we just want a burger and fries and we don’t care how much water we have to consume to eat it. I’m giving this meal a “low” water content rating.



1 Organic Sunshine Garden Herb burger
1/2 Food for Life sprouted whole-grain bun
2 leaves romaine lettuce
1 thick slice red tomato
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 small sweet potato
1 tsp olive oil

Cook burger, and serve open-faced on half a bun. Top with lettuce, tomato, and mustard. Cut sweet potato into wedges, coat with oil and seasonings to taste, and bake.

Total: 490 calories

This is your lunch so do what I do and make it fit your tastes.

1st Swap:


I am going to substitute the Organic Sunshine Garden Herb burger for a grilled Jennie O Turkey burger. Jennie O = One burger is 250 calories. Organic Sunshine Garden Herb burger = One burger is 240 calories.

2nd Swap

Swap out a baked yam, for Alexia Sweet Potato Fries. I love these! 12 fries are a single serving and they have 130 calories. Compare this to a small fry at McDonalds: 230 calories.
