19 Healthy Burgers and Fries for Your Summer BBQ

19 Healthy Burgers & Fries for BBQ Season | The Health Sessions

 

Summer’s officially here and we all know what that means: burger time!

But that doesn’t mean your limited to not-so-healthy store-bought burgers with too much salt and preservatives on white buns. Long gone are the days when those of us not loving red, processed meats where left with a dry turkey burger or tasteless, mushy veggie patty. Food blogs are filled with mouth-watering veggie burgers that even a meat lover would happily dig into. You can make plenty of exciting twists on the classic beef burger, from omega-3-rich salmon burgers to plant-powered patties made with chickpeas, quinoa, black rice and mushrooms.

And what’s a burger without fries? Still crispy and crunchy, the oven-baked veggie fries in this post contain less unhealthy trans fats and more nutritional value than your average French fries. And that includes better-for-you dipping sauces!

So gear up for grilling season with a summer’s worth of healthy burger and fries recipes.

Health Sessions: Habits, Happiness and How to Get Things Done with Chronic Illness

Health Sessions: Habits, Happiness and How to Get Things Done with Chronic Illness | The Health Sessions

 

There comes a point in your life when it’s time to stop reading other people’s books and write your own.”

— Albert Einstein

 

I finally took the plunge.

After years of daydreaming about it, I’ve started writing my first ebook, about creating your own action plan for recovering from illness or injury. So far it’s been a pretty challenging project, with many new things to learn while trying to keep The Health Sessions and my family life running smoothly. But just like everything else in my life, it might take me ages to complete, with the inevitable obstacles in my way, but somehow I’ll get there in the end.

With all my time and energy poured into writing the ebook, however, my inspiration for truly useful blog posts has run a bit dry. Luckily, there are 71 articles packed with in-depth advice in the archives, from how-to guide and expert tips to recipe posts and personal essays.

Here are some of my all-time favourite posts on The Health Sessions. Which article did you find most helpful? Happy reading!
