8 Types of Burgers to Try
Everybody loves a good burger! From its scrumptious flavors to the crispy taste of fresh lettuce and tomatoes with each bite. But did you know that there’s more than just your typical beef burger? Let’s check them out!
Beef is an excellent source of B12 which is an important vitamin that is needed for the production of red blood cells and energy; therefore, a customary ground beef burger is a great source of protein, particularly if the beef is grass-finished since it is more lean than traditional beef burgers.
Elk burgers differ nutritionally from their ground beef counterparts as they contain higher amounts of protein and are considerably lower in fat. Elk burgers are not only tender but loaded with B12 vitamins and iron.
3. Portobello Mushroom
In case you have never tried a portobello mushroom burger, you are missing out on a delicious experience. The robust flavor paired with a meaty texture is certainly a treat for the taste buds. Plus, mushrooms contain polyphenols that provide a spectrum of health benefits.
Turkey burgers that are made from ground breast meat are extra lean, low in calories, and provide a heart-healthy dose of protein. For even further dietary benefits, garnish your turkey burger with fresh produce and avoid adding unhealthy condiments that are high in fat and calories.
Veggie burgers are flavorful and filling, yet have much less artery-clogging saturated fat than traditional beef burgers. A huge perk that veggie burgers bring to the table…literally…is reduced exposure to carcinogens known as heterocyclic amines that are produced when meat is cooked on a grill at high temperatures.
The taste of bison burgers is very comparable to the flavor of beef burgers. Bison is tender, slightly sweet, and its nutritional components make it a wonderful source of lean protein.
7. Wild Salmon
Wild salmon burgers are chock full of omega-3s. These healthy fatty acids are contained in fish oils and can assist in decreasing the risk of heart disease and prevent inflammation that can slow down metabolism.
8. Black Bean
Black bean burgers have an abundance of protein and fiber as well as being low in calories and do not contain saturated fat. These burgers provide us with antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins that are beneficial to brainpower. Antioxidants have the ability to destroy free radicals that are associated with cancer, heart disease, and the aging process.
