You have probably already wondered if “Is it possible for a burger to be healthy?”. It’s normal these questions pop up because we don’t want to give up eating the things we enjoy, but we also need to be aware of our health and burgers seem to be off-limits when you’re trying to eat right.
In fact, a healthy diet needs to be very varied and studies show that meat is a great source of high-quality protein, for instance, chicken and turkey, can be an excellent source of digestible proteins, B vitamins, iron, zinc, and copper.
So, does it mean that the unhealthy part of a burger is just the bread, sauces, cheese? Yes, but also no. Not completely, lean meat isn’t unhealthy in the right portions and those other ingredients mixed in different meals in the right proportions won’t be as bad. You may have also heard that everything in exaggeration is bad, keep this always in mind!
But, if you prefer to eat meat, give preference for lean meats, chicken or turkey and take the opportunity to add the juiciness you lose with leaner proteins with vegetables like mushrooms, onions, and zucchini, carrots can bring juicy and flavour if you like to innovate there are recipes that mix lentils and quinoa in the petty meat before cooking it.
Okay, we arrived at the bread situation that we know is not the best food to be on a healthy diet, but keep in mind more often about exaggerated acts that can be harmful. Low-carb bread option is a good try for these occasions but you always can choose another ingredient to be your “kind of bread” like eggplant or sweet potato.
So, I think that answers our question, it is possible to make a burger healthier and burgers don’t need to be completely off-limits while trying to keep healthy eating.
