Here is a whopper style burger salad meal prep which is macro-friendly and keto-friendly. This is a great way to enjoy a burger everyday without feeling guilty or worrying about breaking your daily caloric intake plan.
What is a naked burger?
This recipe simply contains two small burger patties, with most of its toppings but without the bun, all stored in a meal prep container.
For this whopper inspired version, I have used tomato, lettuce, gherkin and a small pot of burger sauce. I avoided onions but you can use them too.
The naked burger is simply a hack to reduce the calories from the usual burger recipe and turn it into a tasty salad.
As a result, it ends up high in protein and fat while low in carbs and calories which can be useful in many ways depending on your diet and lifestyle.
Most fast food salads could have hidden calories but I have calculated the nutritional information for this meal prep, including the small pot of burger sauce, and can you believe this is under 300 calories?
The main reason why this salad is low in calories is because I am using a meal prep container that is encouraging portion control.
This burger salad recipe is very low in carbohydrates due to the removal of the burger bun and there is only a small pot of sauce for the dressing.
If you are following a keto diet, this recipe will interest you because there is an opportunity to add more fat such as bacon and cheese, or even choose a higher fatty meat for your burger patty.
Whether it is naked burger or naked burrito, I love the variation of these recipes because it allows you to regularly enjoy your favourite meals without feeling guilty or worrying about your macros.
There are plenty of variations of the burger salad meal prep that I will be posting more in the upcoming months which means you can simply cook all your burger patties in one griddle pan and choose different salads and sides!
