• A healthy twist on the classic Cheeseburger, Fries + Shake - instead we replace it with a fresh herb filled turkey burger (with cheese), roasted spicy sweet potatoes and a dairy free, low-fat banana shake.
  • This meal is a good representation of my blog as we believe in eating real, whole foods, without sacrificing taste or health.

  1. Banana Shake
  2. How to:
  3. Put the frozen banana rounds into your food processor and mix until they turn into an ice-cream like consistency.
  4. Transfer the banana ice cream to your blender.
  5. Add ice cubes and almond milk and blend until smooth.
  6. Pour into your favorite glass, add a straw and enjoy.
  7. *To freeze the banana in advance, peel it, slice it, freeze it. Freezing with the peel on will cause you problems.
  8. Roasted Spicy Sweet Potatoes
  9. How to:
  10. Pre-heat oven to 400°.
  11. Peel potatoes and cut into cubes. Add all cubes to a large bowl. Add seasoning and olive oil and toss until potatoes are coated. Lightly spray a cooking sheet with canola or olive oil spray. Spread seasoned potato cubes across the pan in an even layer.
  12. Cook for 15 minutes, then turn potatoes with spatula.
  13. Cook another 10 minutes.
  14. Turn oven to high-broil and broil for about 5 minutes to crisp the potatoes.
  15. Serve with ketchup or alone.
  16. *I like things spicy and these potatoes did have a bit of a kick. If you are not a spicy food person, I would start by adding only half of the spices listed here.
  17. Turkey Burger with Fresh Herbs
  18. How to:
  19. Prepare all herbs and seasonings as noted.
  20. Mix all ingredients in large bowl, use your hands to mix everything thoroughly
  21. Once mixed, prepare patties. You should be able to get 5-6 full sized patties from the mixture.
  22. Heat a grill pan (or fry pan) on medium to high heat. Place patty (or patties) in pan and begin to cook.
  23. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side until burger is cooked through.
  24. If adding cheese, place a slice on top of your burger and continue cooking until melted.
  25. Assemble burger to your liking and enjoy!
