1. San Choy Burger

Inspired by the Chinese delicious San Choy Bow, we recommend swapping your high-calorie bread buns for a fresh, healthy lettuce leaf.

Place your burger patty on your lettuce leaf. Add a little avocado, tomato, add a pinch of Himalayan rock salt and carefully fold the lettuce leaf.

That’s it, your lower-calorie bun is enjoyed to be enjoyed. What’s even better is that if any of your toppings fall out, you can just scoop them back up.
