Tilapia Burgers - 140-calorie meal packed with flavor
I’m sure that tilapia has turned up on your meal plan time and time again (for at least one of your meals). I know that this can get boring to eat day in and day out. Well, if you change up the way that you prepare certain foods, with minimal added calories, a whole new world of eating opens up to you! I’ve taken the typical tilapia filet and ground it up with a few other ingredients to create a tilapia burger that is packed with flavor. This recipe provides only 25 additional calories to a plain tilapia filet! Get creative and use various types of fish and vegetables. Enjoy!

Keeping our bodies in shape is hard work… and, yes, it absolutely does mean making sacrifices when it comes to the foods that we choose to eat!
