Happy Memorial Day! I bet you’re heating up the grill today & have burgers on the menu. Just a wild guess. 😉
Whether you’re eating a classic, veggie, or flex burger top it w/ these superfoods….
BEST BURGER TOPPINGS:
🍔1. The Classics
You can’t beat these “OG” toppers: romaine lettuce, tomato, red onion & avocado. Put out a BIG tray of these!
Pro-tip: Swap lettuce to watercress for LOTS of extra nutrition. Find in the produce section near other leafy greens.
🍔2. Turmeric Mustard/Ketchup
Stir 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (+ a pinch of black pepper) into a serving of ketchup and/or mustard for an anti-inflammatory & mood boost!
Pro-tip: Buy ketchup without added sweeteners. You’re sweet enough already.💕
Kraut & kimchi are natural probiotic foods for a healthy gut. And they add lots of flavor & crunch to a burger!
Pro-tip: Buy unpasteurized versions since pasteurization kills good bacteria.
Cabbage is in the same veggie family as broccoli, so it has similar health benefits like cancer prevention. Mix pre-shredded coleslaw w/ mayo, splash of vinegar, sea salt & pepper.
Pro-tip: Swap regular mayo to avocado oil mayo.
🍔5. Nut Butter
This topper is so unusual, but nut butter on a burger is delish! Trust me on this one. Plus nut butter adds healthy fat + plant protein.
Pro-tip: Choose a nut butter with just nuts in the ingredient list & any nut butter works…pecan, almond or peanut!
🍔6. Sriracha Yogurt
This is like spicy mayo, but yogurt gives a nourishing probiotic & protein boost. It’ll be your new favorite special sauce!
Pro-tip: Mix a bit of sriracha into plain 2% Greek yogurt.
Best buns = sprouted whole grain buns! Classic buns add too many white flour CRAP calories. When products use sprouted grains, it helps increase the amount of protein, vitamins & minerals our body can use. And may make the grains easier to digest.
