It's Tasty Tuesday! 

This has quickly become one of our favorite week night recipes! Its quick, easy, simple ingredients and EVERYONE (including the kids) love it. And it's also great for making a few extra to easily grab and go for lunch the next day! This is a recipe from the new Insanity Max 30 nutrition guide. The suggest topping the burgers with avocado, lettuce and tomato. We also like to top ours with a little fresh cut cilantro! It just adds a little something extra to the flavor of the avocado. The sweet potato fries are a healthy baked version of everyone's favorite side. The sweet potato gives it a slightly different flavor, and the cayenne pepper gives it just the right kick!

Bake or grill patties for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in the middle. Serve each patty over lettuce, tomato and avocado (and with some fresh cilantro too!)
