Make the most of your workout!
Bison has become the sweatheart meat for fitness pro’s – and known as the “good for you red meat”. While bison doesn’t have much on it’s cow cousin in terms of cholesteral upsides, bison has less than 50% the fat and less calories than beef.
So I whipped up a batch of mini burgers to put with a lettuce wrap and avocado – 2 of these will fill you for lunch at about 200 calories, only 8 grams fat (wow!) and 26g protein! And delicious to boot..
Ingredients (makes 8 mini burgers):
Mix the first 5 ingredients together and shape to form mini burger patties (should make 8 total)
Bake on 400 degrees for approximately 10-15 minutes (bison cooks much faster than beef, so watch the temp!)
Place inside lettuce leaf and top with 1 slice (about 1/8 of a whole) avocado
