Eating well doesn’t mean you have to give up all your favorite foods. Try this recipe for healthy burgers.
•1 pound grass-fed ground beef
•1/2 cup chopped veggies (yellow, green or red onions, zucchini and yellow squash work best)
•1 Tablespoon grass-fed Butter or coconut oil
•2 Tablespoons chopped Parsley
In a small frying pan, melt butter and sauté the vegetables over medium heat until tender, about 8-10 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine the sautéed vegetables with the ground beef and parsley. Work the mixture with your hands until well combined. Form into four patties and grill until desired doneness is reached. Serve between two sweet potato chips (see below) or butter lettuce leaves or open faced on a lettuce leaf and then layered with a tomato slice, pickle, onion and desired condiments.

Sweet Potato Chips (Use as a bun or bread)
•2 large sweet potatoes
•¼ cup coconut oil
•Salt to taste
Place the coconut oil in a large skillet and melt it over medium high heat. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes. If using as a “bun”, slice them length wise for a large chip.
Place an even layer of the sliced sweet potatoes into the hot skillet. Cook until golden brown (about 3 minutes), flipping each piece with tongs and cooking for another three minutes on the other side until golden brown. Remove chips from the skillet and place them on paper towels on a plate or baking sheet. Repeat until all chips are cooked. Salt to taste.
