Honey-Mustard Turkey Burgers

By Logo inline

Burgers made with ground turkey are a lean alternative to beef burgers, providing you choose turkey ground from the breast. Regular ground turkey, which is a mixture of light and dark meat and some skin, contains almost as much fat as lean ground beef. A honey-mustard mixture keeps these low-fat patties moist and succulent.

Bread again? What is wrong with eating all this without the bun?
The fact that it's whole grain, does not change that it is GRAIN.

"Whole wheat" is a SPIN!!! The difference between the wheat flour and whole wheat flour is the husks that are milled into the whole version. There is still the white pure simple carb-white flour that spikes one's blood sugar, period.

If you are already insulin and leptin resistant grains will raise your
insulin and leptin levels, which is a major driver of most chronic diseases.
Besides, most whole grain products on the market are highly processed, which
further deteriorates their value.

Intake of grains should be as close to ZERO as possible. Dr. Sears wrote recently that eating grains is true for birds, not for us.

Grains:
- make us fat,
- elevate our blood glucose leading to diabetes,
- give us gluten (i.e. GLUE that creates plaque in arteries and brain blood vessels) leading to leaky gut and in some the Celiac disease,
- give us inflammation that is the root cause of most chronic diseases like diabetes, heart diseases, arthritis, Alzheimer's and more.

Google it.
