Avocado Bison Burgers

Skinny dinners can be easy to make…here’s one I love when I want a hearty beef tasting kick.

Remember to add some delicious avocados! They are high in healthy mono-unsaturated fats such as oleic acid. They also have anti inflammatory properties and are high in potassium, magnesium, and fiber.
