Bento #21

Bento #21

Contents:
- Chickpea Burger
- Cucumber Salad
- Steamed Corn

I've noticed that since I've been working out more I've turned into a bottomless pit. I find myself absolutely starving all the time. To counter act this I've been trying to bump up my protein intake. I made these burgers after one of my work outs this week and they were perfect - delicious & filling.

I used this recipe with a few modifications. I used whole grain bread in place of white, chives in place of scallions, and then added 1/2 tsp red pepper flake for some heat. I also threw in some extra almonds for added texture. Instead of eating them with Mayo we chose mustard and Sriracha hot sauce with lettuce and tomato. So good!

The cucumber salad on the side is literally just cucumbers, greek yogurt, salt and pepper. The cold creaminess was perfect against all the heat I added to the burgers. I'll be making these again.
