If you’re craving a burger, try making a Power Burger. This burger is mixed together and formed into patties using the following ingredients:
- ½ pound of lean, organic beef.
- 2 tablespoons of oat bran.
- ¼ cup of oats.
- 2 tablespoons of fat-free milk.
- 1 teaspoon of dehydrated onion flakes.
- ½ teaspoon of canola (or corn) oil.
- A dash of black ground pepper.
Because the Power Burger uses lean ground beef, oats, and oat bran, it’s great for your digestive system. It’s low in fat and fiber, thanks to the soluble fiber present in the oats, which means it’s soothing for any symptoms you might be experiencing. If you can’t handle any dairy, you can also adjust the recipe and use broth instead of milk, as needed.
