Who doesn’t love burgers and fries? I love a burger on the grill. The aroma of a hamburger cooking on the grill is a definite sign that summer is here.
How about a healthier version of a hamburger and fries? I have swapped out the classic hamburger for a turkey burger and french fries for yam fries.
BURGER AND FRIES
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
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.
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.
