One of the hardest parts of trying to lose weight is the thought of having to give up our favorite foods, and for many, this means giving up burgers and fries.

Who doesn’t love a good juicy burger with a generous side of fries? After all, it reminds us of summertime and family BBQ’s. It is also one of the first foods we eliminate from our diet. But just because you are eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to give it up. You can still have a juicy burger and still lose weight if you know how to do it.

Homemade Healthy Hamburger


  • 2 slices of Ezekiel Bread or 1 Ezekiel Bun
  • 8oz of Ground Beef (97% lean/3% fat)
  • 1 medium Sweet Potato
  • 1/2 tbsp of olive oil


Form your ground beef into a round beef patty. In a skillet, cook your patty over medium heat until it is cooked to the desired temperature.

Place your patty between your two pieces of Ezekial Bread.

For your fries, cut your sweet potato into strips and place in the oven at 350º for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Feel free to top your burger with your favorite veggies and if you are going to use condiments be sure to limit yourself and not overuse them. Overusing condiments, or using the wrong condiments, is one of the biggest mistakes we make as we try to make the switch to healthy food and try to lose the weight.
