5 Ways to have a healthy burger

Nothing says summertime like a mouthwatering and tasty hamburger. Sinking your teeth into a succulent patty is pure bliss.

A really good one is simply a thing of beauty – inherently delicious, messy and oh so satisfying.

A hamburger just hits the spot. It’s comfort, joy and laughter all wrapped into one. A food etched in our collective memory since childhood.

And a barbecue isn’t complete without it. It’s the classic, the showstopper and the main event - a piece of culinary design that is consistent and rarely disappoints. Bite after bite, we come back for more.

Whether we’re gathered for lunch or dinner, it’s the perfect food to grill and enjoy with friends and family on a warm summer’s day.

There is no doubt. The hamburger is closely associated with beef, but there are now several healthy options readily available – from chicken, turkey, lamb, paleo-friendly to delicious vegetarian varieties.

Here are five creative ways to enjoy a new and healthy twist on an old favourite:
