cheeseburgerSide Notes:

Serve this with a salad or healthy coleslaw!  My favorite online company to order through is Slankers as they have a wide variety of different types of meats and cuts, and they will deliver right to your door.

All Slanker Grass-Fed and Omega-3 Meats are Beyond Organic which means all natural, no sugar, no added hormones, not fed antibiotics, no corn, no soy, non-GMO, gluten free, high Omega-3, free range, cage free, and humanely raised.

What actually makes our meats the healthiest meats in the world and sets them apart from all others is that they are zero glycemic, nutrient dense and diverse, with healthy balances of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids.


Dr. Jockers Comments:

This cheeseburger is loaded with powerful brain building nutrients it should be a staple part of every person’s diet.  Grass-fed beef is packed full of nutrition including the long-chain omega 3 fatty acids EPA & DHA.

This beef has vitamin B12 which is key for neurological integrity, carnosine which is a powerful antioxidant that protects the brain and nervous system from free radical damage and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is an incredible nutrient that helps the body fight cancer and burn fat.

Raw cheese provides vitamin K2, calcium, magnesium and omega 3 fatty acids.  Red onions have the powerful anti-oxidant anthocyanin along with sulfur containing amino acids that pack a brain regenerating punch.  Spinach is loaded with chlorophyll which builds new blood cells and lutein & zeaxanthin which are carotenoid anti-oxidants that protect brain tissue from stress.

  1. I made these for dinner last month. I used Organic Valley raw cheddar. My husband really loves these. I’m not a committed beef eater and I even liked them. (Only talked into trying them because the beef was from an excellent grass-fed source.) thanks, Dr. David! Really appreciate you, your recipes, articles, site (s), and FB posts! God richly bless you!

  2. So glad to hear you are taking action with this! I would recommend using the Beyond Organic beef and cheese as it is the highest quality source you could find on the planet.

  3. I was told that it is not good to eat cooked spinach, is this true? Also if we cook the cheese it is not raw ?

    1. Stenelle, Great questions. It is not necessarily bad to cook spinach – just best to have it raw. The cheese has is best in the raw form but when it is cooked it still has many health benefits when it is cooked. Bacillus Coagulans is a microrganism that survives high heat so there are still a good bit of probiotics left even when it is cooked.
