- Grilled Turkey Burgers & Sweet Potato Fries
A lean protein turkey burger is a delicious way to satisfy your burger craving… and melt away fat at the same time.
It uses turkey, a natural source of lean protein, which makes you feel fuller for a long period of time. The amino acid in turkey acts as a building block for muscles… which as long as you are building lean muscle, it will help you recover quicker, and with proper recovery, you’ll melt fat away lightning fast!
Take a bowl, mix garlic, cumin, lean ground turkey, and paprika. Roll the mixture into patties and sprinkle some sea salt and pepper over it. Grill it on medium heat. Cook both sides well. Put it inside buns with sprouted grains, top it with mustard (it tastes AMAZING with spicy mustard), and that’s it.
One more thing you can include with your turkey burgers to really help satisfy that burger and fries craving is to make some sweet potato fries!
Simply slice a sweet potato into long thin slices, lightly coat the slices with olive oil, place them on baking sheet with parchment paper, pop it in the oven at a high temperature (450 degrees) for about 20 minutes, sprinkle with sea salt, and just like that, you got yourself an amazing meal!
