Healthy Burger Alternative
Did you know that a veggie burger can have as much as 82 percent less total fat and 75 percent less saturated fat than a hamburger made with lean ground beef? Generally, most frozen veggie burger varieties sold in the supermarket have about 100-120 calories, 2-4 grams of total fat, 10-14 grams of protein, up to 4 grams of dietary fiber and zero to 1 gram of saturated fat. Turkey burgers made with ground turkey breast and salmon burgers are also great options. Top with sliced onions, tomatoes, greens, and mustard for a healthier alternative to the traditional beef burger!
