When it comes to burgers, they don’t always have to be meat-based. In fact, there are quite a few meatless options out there like these recipes for Green Banana Burgers and Quinoa Burgers with Yogurt Dressing. While doing some online searching, I came upon a Kidney Bean Burger from Linda of the Eating Well…Living Thin Blog. Linda’s Burger looked hearty, filling and s imply delicious. What’s even better is that it’s low in fat and has a good amount of fiber and protein. Who wouldn’t want to take a bite out of a burger that’s both good and good for you?

If you’re on the lookout for more healthy recipes, check out Linda’s blog. Her recipes are new and improved old favorites that everyone in her family enjoys, but are more health and figure conscious. Just because a recipe is lower-carb, low-sugar or completely sugar-free, it doesn’t mean that you have to feel punished by food. With the right ingredients and right substitutions, a “healthier” recipe could still taste absolutely delicious. In fact, looking at her mouthwatering Orange Chicken and her eye-catching Raspberry Cream Pie, I can certainly see her point.
