I guess I've been on a salmon kick lately, but I saw this recipe from Kayla Itsines, The Bikini Body 28-Day Healthy Eating & Lifestyle Guide, and I knew I had to try it. I follow her workout guides and eating guides religiously. She has the same philosophy as I do about being healthy and fit. Your body needs all food groups including carbs and good fats. The secret is to eat fresh, unprocessed foods, not "low-carb, low-fat, reduced calorie" foods. With omega-3-packed salmon (great for a mood boost!), fresh veggies, and plenty of fresh and healthy fixings, this light take on a burger will be even more flavorful than the ones you're used to.

I made my burgers without the caper yogurt the first time because I'm not a huge "sauce" fan and they were absolutely delicious! The second time, I got some courage and made them with the caper yogurt, and they were amazing too! The yogurt definitely adds a little extra oomph! to the burgers, so if you love flavor the caper yogurt is a must. I also put the yogurt on a piece of grilled salmon that I had for lunch one day, so there are lots of ways to use the sauce if you don't use it all on your burgers.
Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring. I hope some of these recipes I post show you that!
