What a surprise! Burger and fries can make a healthful meal. Potatoes, including fries, provide fiber, potassium, and vitamin C, among other important nutrients, and today’s frozen fries are lower in fat and sodium than in the past.


  • 1 lb lean ground beef (5% fat), thawed
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced thinly
  • 4 leaves red lettuce
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns
  • 8 tsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 4 cups frozen shoestring fries


  1. In a medium bowl, mix ground beef with seasonings; shape into patties.
  2. Grill or pan fry. (Use a food thermometer to ensure that the internal temperature of the burgers is 160 degrees.)
  3. Bake shoestring French fries according to package instructions.
