HOME-MADE BURGERS

"Mix minced pork and beef and season to you liking (salt and black pepper needed). Can never go wrong with a burger as long as you don’t leave it in the pan for too long. Don’t press it down into the pan that will release all the moisture and leave it dry. Instead of the traditional bun you can use whole-wheat toast. Sweet potato fries, and salad of your choice. Guacamole is always appreciated."

- Jesper, trainer at Aboro Academy.
