5 Healthy (And Mouth-Watering) Burger Recipes

Maybe it’s because I’m on my first day of my Juice Press juice cleanse (and loving it), but I can’t stop envisioning beautiful hamburgers floating through the air when I close my eyes. Is that normal?

As much as I love classic hamburgers, they are firmly a sometimes food due to their calorie count, fat content, et cetera. Once I’m off this cleanse, I’m going to try to eat well, but that doesn’t mean veggie burgers, turkey burgers and the like won’t be fair game. There are healthy alternatives that are just as delicious.

These are the five of the most tantalizing healthy burger recipes online:

1) Sweet Potato Veggie Burger with Avocado-

2) Vietnamese Tuna Burger

3) Walnut Lentil Burgers with Tarragon

      No one ever disagrees with that openly because it’d be treason.

    AVOCADO BELONGS ON EVERYTHING. I’m such a sucker for sweet potato too. Veggie burgers are so much better than meat burgers. I’m obsessed
