 With Labor Day BBQ parties in full swing, this is the perfect time to “get your grill on” with recipes from the Party Girl Diet book series that promise you will never feel like you are on the “I’m hungry diet” again.

For starters, you can build a better burger with the Party Girl Diet’s healthy burger tips &  nutrition tips.  We know fat juicy burgers and cheeseburgers are right up there with pizza as a national all-time favorite food – especially during BBQ season. The problem is, eating fat and calorie laden burgers, while delicious, can be a nutrition no-no.

The good news is, the Party Girl Diet’s Guide to building a better cheeseburger with less fat, fewer calories, and secret fat-burning and metabolism boosting ingredients is here to help burger lovers everywhere create healthy cheeseburgers they can enjoy guilt-free.

For the burger patty, select sirloin beef that is 90% lean, which will be lower in saturated fat yet still deliver a juicy burger. When it comes to beef, as the fat content decreases, the protein content increases – which is a nutrition plus. Naturally you can substitute ground turkey for the ground sirloin, or chicken or salmon burgers for the beef patty.

Another burger recipe tip is to try not to handle the meat too much. Mix in your healthy add-ins listed below gently, and when forming the patties don’t overwork it – keep a light touch.

So now just what make’s the Party Girl Diet’s Cheeseburger Recipe so healthy and national nutrition news? For starters, the veggie toppings like fresh tomato salsa, red onion and avocado add essential vitamins and nutrients, and the healthy add-in spices in this burger recipe such as fresh garlic and ground Turmeric will amp up your anti-oxidant intake, while the chili powder – one of this recipes secret fat-burning ingredients will boost your metabolism. Top it all off with a toasted sourdough bun, which adds fiber, and contains carbs in the “resistant starch” category which will also help with your body’s fat-burning. The extra sharp cheddar cheese is rich in calcium and adds a bolt of flavor.
