People have been obsessed with burgers for as long as they remember. Whether it is the juicy meat or the soft bread buns, they can’t always point out what actually makes them crave burgers that much. They just know that they would have them every day if they could. However, since we all know how unhealthy burgers can be, their daily consumption is simply not an option. But what if we told you that you could have more than one burger per week without worrying about your health?
Along with health awareness which has gradually started to increase among the population with the highest obesity rate, restaurant chains all over the world started implementing healthier burger choices on the menus. What’s amazing about that is that healthy burgers aren’t always bland in flavor. On the contrary, the fresh ingredients in them make them even more irresistible than the regular high-fat burgers. What’s not as amazing about them is that they’re usually way more expensive than the regular burgers, which is usually why we opt towards the latter.
But, money should not be an excuse for avoiding healthy food. Just because healthy burgers are expensive when you eat out, it doesn’t mean you can’t make them at home for a much cheaper price.
In this article, we give you the top 10 healthiest burgers we could find that are just as mouth-watering as the regular ones. It’s up to you to choose a recipe that will tickle your tastebuds and try them for yourselves.
Chipotle Black Bean Burger
We’re starting our article with a veggie choice that can be just as filling as any other meat burger due to the healthy fats from the avocado.
