More often than not, healthy food is not that delicious. Fast-food is usually associated with harmful food, good only for your taste buds but not for the rest of your body. But even so, it is very hard to keep away from it, with all its mesmerizing aroma and smells.

That’s why we are going to help you be able to still enjoy a delicious burger, without all the guilt that accompanies it. Here are three recipes for home-made burgers, a healthier yet still tasty alternative to the commercial ones.
