Be a part of the burger mania:Eating healthy burgers sounds weird because people usually think that burgers are junk food and cannot be healthy.
However, it all depends on the choice of your ingredients. Try to be innovative while making your burgers and add ingredients which have less fat in them.

Fatty sauces can be replaced by hummus and herb sauces, which would add colour and taste to the burger. Instead of using fried chicken or pork, steamed chicken or turkey can be used. Olives, cucumbers, onions, tomatoes and ice bergs or lettuce assist in making the burger wholesome and appealing.
Adding different spices to your burger, according to your taste, would cause no harm.Cut the sugar free beverages and alcoholic drinks from the menu and you’ve just saved yourself a whopping 100 calories.
Another cheap trick is to make your burger look perfect. The way you present your burger on the plate increases the temptation factor so pay specific attention to colourful and neat staging of the plate so that it is impossible to resist.
