Dr Jockers Comments:
This burger is awesome! It is loaded with essential fats, anti-oxidants, clean proteins & fiber. The brain depends upon a continual supply of saturated fat and omega 3 fatty acids to build healthy neuronal cell membranes. This burger provides those essential fats and is loaded with unique anti-oxidants with the Italian herbs and garlic.
This recipe should be a regular staple dinner for you and your family. They should be served with a bed of veggies for added anti-oxidants. I find that it is especially important to have a lot of veggies with meat in order to reduce the oxidative stress that comes with eating the cooked amino acids (heterocyclic amines). Cooking it at a low temperature for a longer period of time is another helpful strategy.
It is always a great idea to have a healthy burger recipe in your arsenal. My family does something like this almost every week as one of our staple meals. I will often put guacamole on my burger to get more healthy fats and make it ketogenic (a high fat, moderate protein meal as opposed to a high protein meal). It is wholesome, filling and tasty…you will love this burger recipe!!
