Most food and diet advice makes us sad. We’re told to ditch our favourite foods in favour of ones we despise and put our nostalgic memories of burger and chips to bed, never to be thought about, dribbled over or devoured ever again. How incredibly depressing.
We believe healthy eating ought to be fun, and you should never have to give up your favourite meals in favour of rabbit food. This cheeseburger toastie uses lean ground steak chuck to make the patties, with a little salt and pepper for seasoning: Pure and simple. We’ve added Monterey Jack Cheese, salad, pickle and crispy onions. All for only 417 calories and 6g carbs for the whole burger!
As a side suggestion, we would highly recommend baked celeriac chips/fries. Simply add a few sprigs of thyme or rosemary, cooking spray, chilli flakes, and salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 25-45 minutes and you have yourself a delectable side portion for only 207 calories. That's under 650 calories for the whole dish!
