To most people, a healthy hamburger is an oxymoron, but we are here to change that. We realize that it’s impossible to resist a burger. Good, bad, ugly, greasy, it doesn’t matter.
Hamburgers have a hold over our lives in ways we will never understand and even though it’s not the healthiest of options, there’s nothing that can be a substitute when you are craving one. But for runners, the guilt of having a greasy burger may be too much to overcome, but that doesn’t mean you should relegate the burger to your ‘sin list’. There’s a way out for you, yet.
We love food enough to crack open a recipe where you won’t feel even the slightest pang of guilt while scarfing down one of these. Just make sure you follow the recipe, and it’s likely to tide you over till the next burger craving, without adding any guilty calories.

You can even experiment with the toppings and use chopped avocado or sauteed mushrooms for a different flavour profile. And you know what goes great with a burger? Yes, how about a serving of fries. But don’t worry, we have you covered there too, with this healthy take on French Fries.
