Let me say right off this isn’t as much of a recipe as it is a reason why you SHOULD be eating this. Seriously, who doesn’t like a juicy, delicious hamburger? You can make this fantastic burger with grass-fed beef or even ground turkey to save on calories. We grilled a few on our little charcoal grill and served it on a whole grain sprouted buns with peppers, onions, and mushrooms. However, the ingredient we will focus on today is blue cheese. Yes…blue cheese!

Shakes go psychologically hand-in-hand with weight loss and good health—they are akin to the rocket fuel of the diet world. I’m not sure why, but an educated guess would be: 1) you aren’t chewing, so you got to skip the first step in the digestive process yet you become miraculously full, making them seem more scientific; and 2) the ingredients are perfectly measured. Measuring calories is the key to success with diet goals; and 3) convenience–consuming a shake is faster than eating, which is perfect for busy on-the-go people.

Gotta love a low-calorie enchilada! Chad would make these for me to give me a treat when I was cutting for a body challenge. They are super delicious! You won’t want to make them if you are cutting sodium, but any other time they make for a great (actually, more like EPIC) option!
