Burger and Fries Anyone?
For a healthier burger, our classic upgrade will always include well sourced meat whether it be grass fed beef or organic and/or pastured chicken and turkey.
If you’re watching your carbs you can skip the bun (or try using a sauteed portobello mushroom instead)! And don’t forget to top your burger with lots of juicy tomatoes, avocado, organic ketchup, greens, etc.
You can make fries with many types of veggies such as sweet potatoes, butternut squash, turnips, and celeriac. Instead of frying, coat your “fries” in an oil that can take the heat such as avocado oil, which also has great heart health benefits. Spice them up as you like!
These are really easy to make. Eat with or without a bun, topped with more red onion and some fresh guacamole and/or a dollop of our favorite mayo.
