The Beef on Turkey Burgers: Why They’re Heart-Healthy
Turkey burgers are a low saturated-fat alternative to beef burgers that deserves a regular place on your summer BBQ menu. Unfortunately, as with many other naturally “good-for-you” foods, the American tendency is to eat the least healthy food choices. But it’s time turkey burgers took their rightful place as a staple of the summer BBQ. They can be just as hearty and satisfying as any burger made from red meat.
Turkey burgers are high in protein. Turkey protein contains essential amino acids that your body can use to perform a myriad of functions every day. The reason why you need some protein every day—such as that found in turkey meat—is because every single cell in your body contains protein.
