5 Ways Your Summer Burgers can be as Healthy and Delicious:

Who says that your burger can't be healthy and tasty at the same time? Here's a few tips to load your burgers with vitamins and nutrients and keep all of the flavor!

 

1. Fruits and Vegetables!

Adding healthy produce like mushrooms and pineapple to your burger provides plenty of healthy nutrients while adding sweet and savory flavors.

 

2. Try to choose low fat/lean options when choosing ground beef, including 93% lean ground beef or turkey.

This will give you a healthy supply of 10 essential nutrients including zinc, iron, protein, B12, B6, Choline, Selenium, Niancin, Phosphorus, and Riboblavin. One 3oz burger will give you 25g of protein power!

 

3. If grilling isn't your thing, then try stir-frying, oven roasting or broiling your burger.

 

4. Ginger, Garlic and Tumeric.

Adding super herbs and spices will add serious flavor to your burgers, while adding amazing health benefits - a win win!

 

5. Let it rest, and give it a worthy bun.

Give your burger 5 minutes to rest before enjoying for a more flavorful experience. Make sure to top off your burger with a whole wheat bun and other fresh veggies. Make it a cheeseburger with naturally low fat cheeses like mozzarella, goat, or feta or look for low fat swiss or cheddar cheeses.

Enjoy the rest of your summer with a few of these tips, and keep Living Well!
