What is it about runny eggs that gets everybody going? It’s like food porn. This meal will not disappoint! An indulgent but surprisingly healthy take on burger and chips dinner. The burger is made from lean mince, with the majority of fat drained after cooking. The cheese is Mozzarella, which is much healthier and lighter than cheddar. From a carb perspective, no gluten-filled highly processed white bun, and the fries are made from Sweet Potato with a dash of Rice Bran Oil, meaning less inflammatory oils and lower GI index than white potato. Then, of course, you’ve got a generous serving of light and healthy salad. Should your appetite or calorie budget not allow for this portion size, take it down to just one stuffed burger and save 371 calories.

Then you have the indigestible fibre and prebiotic benefits for your guts microbiome (i.e. feeding the beneficial bacteria), that come with mushrooms, and beetroot. Lean beef is a great source of protein and creatine, both very supportive to having developing and maintaining a lean physique. Eggs are great source of protein and should be a staple for most active people, with egg yolk providing a nice hit of good cholesterol that helps with hormone production and cell energy. Lastly, Mozzarella is made from Buffalo or Goats milk, which have much healthier profiles than cows milk, plus it’s a fine source of Biotin (Vitamin B7).
