Healthy Chicken Burger

Everyone at some point in their life has used an emoji. 😉

They are great ways to exactly express feelings which a simple text message cannot convey. But have you noticed some random emojis that have come up over time? And they are more confusing than ever!

One of them is a french horn listed under objects section surrounded by mail boxes and charts.  And the tassel below looks like it has legs! Hmm…frenchhorn

Then there is a  girl in the pink shirt who shows us a wide range of emotions including her joys and sorrows in life. But if there was one emoji that I could point as the most vague is the one where she has her hands up almost touching her head.

Anyway, I am glad there are burger emojis. 😀

Who doesn’t like to bite down a big juicy burger filled with cheese and meat? But the downside to that is calories, sodium, ammonia and trans fat.

That doesn’t mean you have to swear off burgers for good, it is always better to go homemade, where you have complete control over the ingredients.

There are few healthy twerks you can make to your burger like substituting red meat with lean meat. Seasoning them with variety of spices and condiments and using tomatoes and caramelized onions for extra moisture.

Also, there was no cheese or sauce added and yet it was moist and flavorful!
