1/4 Cup Fresh Italian Parsley, chopped

In a large stainless steel mixing bowl, combine the buffalo, garlic, herbs, oil, olives, parsley, peppers and egg and mix well. Divide into 8 equal burgers and set aside. Lightly spray grill with cooking spray then heat grill to high. Place the burgers on the grill and season as needed with salt and pepper. Turn burgers once to cook on both sides. Remove from the grill when cooked to desired doneness. Place onto Iceberg lettuce "buns," drizzle lightly with lemon juice and enjoy.

Sweet and Salty Sweet Potato Fries

Spread out in a single layer. Bake until tender when pierced with a knife, 25 to 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Meanwhile, combine coconut aminos and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until syrupy and reduced to 1/3 cup, 12 to 15 minutes. (Watch the syrup carefully during the last few minutes of reducing to prevent burning.) Swirl in butter. Drizzle the sauce over the sweet potatoes.
